Jack Ryan reboot gets Chris Pine and new writer

The planned reboot for the Jack Ryan series has secured itself a brand new writer to go along with its new star.

Having confirmed Star Trek star Chris Pine as the new Jack Ryan, it was reported today that Sherlock Holmes writer Anthony Peckman will come on board as the movie’s scriptwriter.

The character, created by novelist Tom Clancy, has previously been portrayed in Hollywood by Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and most famously, Harrison Ford. The last film, 2002’s Sum Of All Fears, fared well at the box office earning nearly $200 million.

Reports coming in state that the new film, tentatively titled Moscow, will feature Jack Ryan before he joins the CIA. Filming is expected to start early next year.

The new film is slated to hit cinemas December 25th, 2008 and was written by Continue reading
