Chris Pine To Star as Jack Ryan

Chris Pine as Jack Ryan on MotorcycleChris Pine’s latest role is none other than “Jack Ryan.” The 32 year old actor is now playing the hero of Tom Clancy’s famous franchise, but Jack Ryan is not quite like other famous spies, such as James Bond and Jason Bourne.

Pine said that the role was different than Bourne, that Jack is a brain. He said that his greatest gifts are his smarts and wit. Pine said that he is physical, but in a different way. Pine was originally a bit hesitant to play the role of a spy given the recent terrorist attacks, but Pine says that the attacks, including 9/11 played a big part in influencing how he handled the role.

Pine said that it’s one thing to ply a spy in the Cold War and to be battling the Russians, but it’s very different to be one in 2012, especially having seen 9/11 and what has happened in the world since then. Pine went on to say that you have to be more delicate when playing an American CIA agent now. Pine went on to say that the movie has a good chance to build an awesome thriller with intelligence like “Syriana” that deals with the real world.

Pine is used to filling the shoes of a movie icon. He did so when he starred as James T. Kirk in 2009′s “Star Trek.” The new Jack Ryan film will be released Christmas 2013. As usual, Jack Ryan is a CIA analyst who finds himself forced to turn on the heroics.

A photo has just been released showing Pine as Jack Ryan riding around on his motorcycle. Pine’s younger, stylish Ryan is speeding through the city on a Ducati motorcycle. In the reboot, directed by Kenneth Branagh (who just so happens to be starring in the film as the villain) and co-starring Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner, Ryan has been updated from Cold War origins to the post 9/11 world. But he may still have his run-ins with some Russians.

It seems like Paramount is trying to cash in on Avengers success and will be making numerous films. The first film will be Jack Ryan (name is subject to change) and will star Chris Pine, as we’ve mentioned. The other film, “Without Remorse” will be centered on John Kelly, but William Harper will show up in both films, and possibly more. And Harper will be played by none other than the awesome Kevin Costner. Harper is an American Patriot and an idealist. He also is the man who recruited both Ryan and Kelly in their films and mentors them. After the other two films, it is likely that Harper will headline his own film as well.Chris Pine and Kevin Costner on the set of Jack Ryan

As of right now, “Without Remorse” is being rewritten by Christopher McQuarrie and it seems as though Tom Hardy is being pursued to play the role of Kelly. If Hardy agrees to the role, we could be seeing a serious take on “This Means War” which starred both Pine and Hardy as CIA agents in love with the same gal.
