Branagh in talks to Direct Jack Ryan Reboot with Chris Pine




Kenneth Branagh In Talks to Direct Chris Pine in the Jack Ryan Reboot

Paramount has been planning a rebooted adventure for Tom Clancy‘s signature character, Jack Ryan, for some time now.  The studio found its Ryan in Chris Pine following his terrific turn as James Tiberius Kirk in 2009’s Star Trek, but getting the project off the ground hasn’t been so easy.  Last week it suffered what could’ve been a big setback when it lost its director, but apparently Paramount found a replacement right quick.

Kenneth Branagh is apparently in negotiations with the studio to take on the film, which we’ll refer to as Jack Ryan for the sake of expediency.  That’s according to Vulture, in an article that points out that Branagh delivered a summer blockbuster to Paramount and Marvel Studios with Thor before Disney bought Marvel.
