Thor director Kenneth Branagh is now in talks to direct the Jack Ryan reboot at Paramount.
The studio started talks with the English actor/director after Lost helmer Jack Bender departed the project a week ago, after he spent over a year developing it. According to Vulture, Bender couldn't get Paramount brass to agree on what kind of Jack Ryan picture they wanted; the site says that producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura wants a straight-forward action movie while attached leading man Chris Pine wants a character driven espionage film. Screenwriter David Koepp (Jurassic Park: The Lost World) couldn't find a common ground in the latest version of the script, and that's where we're presently at.- Vulture. Comment on this Scoop (0)

While speaking with Coming Soon about his new movie Invictus, producer Mace Neufeld also let slip the latest on where the new Jack Ryan movie was at. The veteran producer reiterated that the film won't be an origin story but that it's still planned on being a wholly original Ryan adventure that doesn't derive from any of Tom Clancy's novels.
"We pick him up when he's on Wall Street," explained Neufeld, "...[but] the Jack Ryan movies have never been action films. They're kind of 'thinking man's thrillers.' Jack is referred to as a 'water-walker' because of his ability to jump ahead to conclusions. That's very big in all the Jack Ryan films and that's how we want to portray him. He's a teacher. He's a historian. He's a linguist. And he's really smart."
Neufeld also said that Adam Cozad would soon begin performing a rewrite on Hossein Amini's first draft.- Coming Soon. Comment on this Scoop (0)
