Paramount Hitting Alt+Ctrl+Delete On Jack Ryan With Chris Pine
Paramount is interested in firing up the Jack Ryan franchise and that they are in talks with Chris Pine to star. Of course, Pine would be the fourth actor to play the CIA analyst hero, behind Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck. Paramount has also hired writers to create an original script, instead of adapting an existing Tom Clancy novel. This way, they won’t have to wuss out and change the bad guys like they did in “The Sum Of All Fears”. Seriously…Neo Nazis?
Of all the Jack Ryan flicks, which do you like the most? Here’s my preferential order:
- “Patriot Games”
- “The Hunt For Red October”
- “Clear & Present Danger”
- “The Sum of All Fears”
Now, that doesn’t mean that is the order of my favorite Jack Ryan’s. If I had to choose that, it would be this:
- Harrison Ford
- Ben Affleck
- Alec Baldwin
- The Jack Ryan that ran for Senate in Illinois and had to bail because he took Jeri Ryan to sex clubs. He’s definitely the worst.
