With a new Jack Ryan cast, Star Trek’s Chris Pine, the rest of the cast is now falling into place. Here is what we know so far about the plot: Jack Ryan segues from the Marine Corps to a position as a financial consultant for a Russian billionaire, where he's framed in a terrorist plot and forced to go on the run. The film will be directed by Kenneth Branagh and has no release date, yet.
Kenneth Branagh, the Shakespearean actor is also in talks to star opposite Pine as the film’s villain, a Russian bent on destroying the American economy. Given the way these thrillers often end up, the casting will likely put Pine in the unusual position of getting to shoot at his boss. [Variety]
