First Official Photo of Chris Pine as Kenneth Branagh's 'Jack Ryan'

August 31, 2012

Jack Ryan

We just got word a few days ago that Paramount Pictures was sending Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan back into action for a Christmas release in 2013. Now the first official photo of Chris Pine (Star Trek, Unstoppable) has arrived. It's actually one of the more exciting photos to get as a first look since Pine seems to be cruising on that motorcycle with determination. Of course, he might not even be in a chase and maybe is just heading to work, angry that he spilled coffee on some papers. Either way, it's good to finally see Chris Pine at work on this anticipated project with Kenneth Branagh directing and also playing the villain. Seen full below!

Here's the first official photo from Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan (click for a high-res version):

Jack Ryan - First Look

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.

  • Won't be surprised if the action gets the 'Bourne' treatment.
    • Hmm... maybe Pine should have lead the new Bourne film instead.
    That was fast. Has STAR TREK 2 finished shooting already?
    • Yeah, finished shooting 2 or 3 months ago.

    Come on! That is not Jack Ryan. The character is not the over-the-top-action-guy. Call him with any other name, and we can talk about it...
