First Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and now Chris Pine. The mantle of Jack Ryan has been transferred this second reboot of the franchise. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, directed by Kenneth Branagh (who also stars as the villain Viktor Cherevin), is an original story based on the characters by author Tom Clancy. Clancy passed away earlier this month and Ryan is his most famous fictional character. This film however tries to be yet another origin story showing how Ryan got his start as he discovers a threat to the US while working on a case. Kevin Costner plays his mentor and advisor William Harper and Keira Knightley as his wife Cathy Ryan. The film opens on Christmas Day. What do you think of Chris Pine as the new Jack Ryan?
