movies The First Poster for "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit"

48 posts in this topic

Paramount Pictures has released the first poster for director Kenneth Branagh's newly-titled Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, starring Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner, Peter Andersson, Kenneth Branagh, David Paymer and Colm Feore.

 

Based on the Jack Ryan character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, who unfortunately passed away last night, the film is a contemporary action thriller set in the present day. The original story, written by David Koepp, follows a young Jack as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot.

Colm Feore was the bad guy in the Ben Affleck movie, is he the bad guy in this one as well? :s

Sad to hear that Tom Clancy passed away. I enjoyed most of his movies and a few of the books.

Not sure it's a good idea for Chris Pine to start spreading himself all over the place with big roles - he's Captain Kirk for Pete's sake, now trying to step into the Jack Ryan role too. I tell ya, sometimes I have to wonder about actors taking everything that comes their way... :)

 

As for Tom Clancy, his books still sit at the top of my faves list and I'm not a huge reader myself. But whenever his Jack Ryan novels (the original ones not the continued series) were out I'd get 'em and I swear I wouldn't put 'em down till I was done cover to cover. My condolences to his family and friends, as a fan I'll miss what may have come in the future but I'm glad I have a lot of content to always fall back on.

I think it's fine for him to do another big role, there won't be a new trek movie till 2015 at best.

I always pictured Jack Ryan as not so much an action hero but an office worker that gets put in action situations against his will.  More of a geeky character.

Yeah, I agree. For me it was John Clark that was the action guy. Liev Schreiber seemed to portray Clark the best (pity it was for SOAF) in my mind. I wonder if we will see Clark in this film? On the wikipedia article for the character it says that he is going to appear, but if you check IMDB there doesn't seem to be a casting (or I missed it). Speaking of Clark, what happened to the idea of making Without Remorse in to a film?

I'll keep an eye on this. I'm still not sure what to make of Chris Pine though.

When I first saw that character show up in SOAF I made a Sam Fisher/Splinter Cell connection in my head.   :)

Ryan isn't supposed to be a Borne style character. While this looks like it should be fun, it doesn't feel like a Jack Ryan type movie.

Oh dear. :(

It looks like an entertaining film in itself, but why did they feel the need to use Tom Clancy's characters? From the feel of that trailer you could have just made up different names and no one would really know that it was supposed to be in the Ryanverse. But who knows, maybe I will be pleasantly suprised...I really hope so.

They're using Tom Clancy characters because people know the name and the characters from either reading the books or watching one of the other movies.   It's more of a sure bet that it'll draw in viewers than if they had just used different characters and some generic title.
