Jack Ryan Movie News

Sam Raimi Is Bringing Back Jack Ryan

Earlier this week I called Sam Raimi a busy guy which is, it turns out, an understatement because now there's news of yet another ambitious Raimi project: the return of Tom Clancy's CIA hero Jack Ryan. Previously, the role of Jack Ryan has been played by Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger) and Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fears).

Jack Ryan is not dashing like James Bond, nor is he a highly trained killing machine like Jason Bourne. He is a "thinker" who usually relies on his CIA analyst skill set to save the U.S. from evil. These new films reportedly might focus on a younger, less established Ryan, and casting rumors have been swirling around Ryan Gosling for several months.

I'm happy to hear that someone as capable as Raimi is working to bring this character back. While Clancy can get slightly heavy-handed with his patriotism, I'm a sucker for suspenseful spy thrillers and plots that include the piecing together of CIA intelligence. What do you think? Are you excited to see more of Jack Ryan (not to be confused with Jake Ryan)?

Nitachequita - Yes Ben played Jack Ryan during his early years in the CIA. However, there is even more backstory to Ryan and his pre-CIA life that Clancy has documented in his books to explore if the powers that be so choose.

Wasn't Ben Affleck ALREADY the younger, less established Ryan?

I like the Jack Ryan franchise, but I REALLY like Sam Raimi films. It will be interesting to see how he makes his mark on the film.
