Another New Photo from 'Jack Ryan' with First Look at Kevin Costner

Just yesterday we brought you the very first photo from Kenneth Branagn's new Jack Ryan movie, based on the Tom Clancy character. It showed Chris Pine as our new Jack Ryan riding a motorcycle at high speeds through New York. In what seems to be a move to squash any unapproved paparazzi-taken set photos that may pop up, Paramount has suddenly released another photo today. This one features Pine as Ryan again, but also Kevin Costner as CIA field agent William Harper. Costner was recently cast in the role. We know Harper is a mentor character who will appear in multiple Clancy-universe films in the works. View below!
Here's the second official photo from Jack Ryan, which is currently shooting in downtown Manhattan:
Kenneth Branagh is directing Jack Ryan with a script written by Steven Zaillian, Anthony Peckham, Adam Cozad and David Koepp. The film isn't adapted from a particular Tom Clancy novel, and essentially exists as an original story following Jack Ryan (who has appeared in films like Patriot Games and The Sum of All Fears) before he joined the CIA. Branagh is also playing the villain with Keira Knightley as the love interest, Kevin Costner as Ryan's mentor, and James Earl Jones maybe reprising his role from previous Tom Clancy adaptations. The film is now shooting and Paramount sends Jack Ryan to theaters December 25th, 2013.

Looks REAL cool, and Costner is always awesome. I basically approve heartily of everything this movie has, save one thing: it saddens me to see how much James Earl Jones has aged since I last saw "Patriot Games", so it's going to be weird seeing him here if he does rerise his role, looking twice as old as before (and as she should be --that man should be immortal!)

Why not? Tom Clancy's books are always fun and there's plenty of Jack Ryan material to work with.
