Chris Pine (Star Trek) is in negotiations with Paramount to take over the role of the CIA analyst and action hero Jack Ryan. Talks have just begun, but the feeling is that Pine will come on board for the next adventure of Jack Ryan. Producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mace Neufeld are working with a script draft by Hossein Amini, which will be based off of an original concept.
It is unsure when the development of the film will begin. Pine is currently shooting ‘Unstoppable’ with Denzel Washington and may star in ‘The Art of Making Money’ for Paramount. On top of that, it is unclear if Pine would be shooting ‘Star Trek 2’ before the next adventure of Jack Ryan gets underway.
The role has previously been played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck.
