Chris Pine, Paramount's starship captain and CIA analyst?

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Word breaks via Variety that Chris Pine, the man who is the new face of Capt. James T. Kirk, is now in talks to possibly play the new face of Jack Ryan. That's right ladies and gentlemen: Paramount Pictures may have the son of the actor that played the chief in CHiPs locked in to two of the studio's action franchises.

The fourth Jack Ryan film isn't based on a novel by his creator Tom Clancy; instead, it's an original idea scripted by writer Hossein Amini. Mace Neufeld remains onboard as a producer, a role that he's played since the original Jack Ryan movie, 1990's The Hunt For Red October. Lorenzo di Bonaventura is the new producer helping Paramount try and get this third reboot of the film franchise off the ground.

Pine's agent is also negotiating with Paramount to star in a crime drama called The Art of Making Money. If the 29-year-old actor does take on the Jack Ryan role the question becomes which movie will he make first, the Jack Ryan one or the Star Trek sequel? My guess would be on him playing Ryan next as there's no Trek script locked and ready to go for most likely the better part of a year.

JUST STOP!!! For God's sake! They have completely arsed up the Jack Ryan franchise. The thinking man's James Bond and a character with the potential to be a classic American hero, with a great series of source novels to work from with excellent story lines. And they have driven it into the ground by not having the faintest idea how to handle it. Three reboots, Baldwin, Ford, Affleck and now Pine in the role with the chronology so messed up it's like a five year old with ADD has been handling the franchise.

If you have to do this then fine. Start with Patriot Games again, with Pine as Jack, and get somebody locked in as Cathy, Robbie, Greer and so on for 7 films.

Better yet, make them as a TV series. One 6-12 part season for each book, for seven seasons. Perfect format and could be right up there with 24, before it got fat!
