Pine is Jack Ryan?

10.13.2009

Is Chris Pine preparing to spread his franchisability around?

Paramount seems to think that if the kid was qualified to successfully take the helm of the USS Enterprise, he's good enough to step into shoes formerly worn by Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Harrison Ford -- the studio is in talks with the actor to star in a new JACK RYAN movie.

After taking some time off since SUM OF ALL FEARS, the variably aged CIA analyst is apparently finally ready to return. Sam Raimi was once involved, and George Clooney was a favorite for the role, but now it seems like they want to start fresh with the pillow-lipped It Guy.

No word on what they'll do with Tom Clancy's creation, but it's safe to assume it will be adventures from Ryan's early career, and likely an original story rather than something from the character's novels (where he's already become President and then retired).

Extra Tidbit: This comes just a day after the studio was hoping to reel in Pine for THE ART OF MAKING MONEY.

he's to young looking

Lately i am getting a little tired of looking at guys who are in there early 20's doing jobs that go to guys in their late 20's and early 30's.

before anyone jumps on me, im not saying Pines in his early 20's i dont know how old he is, but he LOOKS like he's in his early 20's.

He's a very good choice.

With the exception of Ford's performance in PATRIOT GAMES, the Ryan formula has been done right in all the other Clancy movies. Chris Pine has all the right qualities to make Ryan an affably reluctant-yet-noble hero much like his performance as Kirk in STAR TREK.

Coolio

Though Franco would be a more "inspired" choice (meaning I like to picture Sal the drug dealer saving the US), Pine is a damn fine choice as well.

With all the rumors from Ryan Gosling to James Franco, this is the best I've heard regarding that character, as Pine's fresh-faced enough (and in that picture actually reminds me a little of Baldwin).

I don't know, I think Patrick Wilson would make a better Captain America.
