March 27, 2012 - untitled Jack Ryan movie / Kenneth Branagh in talks to direct reboot
Scooped on Tuesday, March 27, 2012
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.
