First pictures of Chris Pines and Kevin Costner in Jack Ryan

Chris Pine as Jack Ryan
Jack Ryan,  the upcoming Paramount film based not on a Tom Clancy book but on Tom Clancy's iconic Jack Ryan character has just begun production in Manhattan. And the first photos from the set have appeared online. In the past Ryan has been played by Alec Baldwin in The Hunt for Red October, Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger and Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears - I missed that one. According to Collider.com, Jack Ryan played this time around by Chris Pine,  as the ex-marine, works as a Moscow-based financial analyst who uncovers a plot by his employer to finance a terrorist attack designed to collapse the U.S. economy. Kenneth Branagh who directs the movie, also plays the film’s villain, Keira Knightley is onboard as the female lead.

Here's the first look at Kevin Costner, playing a legendary CIA agent as well.

Earlier this year, Branagh put his efforts to make the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on hold presumably for casting reasons . As happy as I'll be to see this one with my hubby, I sure wish he would get back to work on the  post-world war two drama set to star Kate Winslet. I have a horrible feeling it will never happen.
