Paramount looking to relaunch Jack Ryan?

Paramount looking to relaunch Jack Ryan?

The character created by Tom Clancy


Though he’s no longer involved in the series (though he wanted to do “Sum of All Fears”, the studio had other ideas), Australian filmmaker Phillip Noyce, who directed Jack Ryan pics “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger”, tells Moviehole that he’s heard that the wheels are in motion to put C.I.A agent Ryan back on the big screen. But no, he won’t be involved – and from the sounds of it, neither will the man who invented the popular literary character.

According to Noyce, Paramount is looking to relaunch the Jack Ryan film series – a series that began with 1990’s “The Hunt for Red October” – only this time; the film won’t be based on one of Tom Clancy’s books.

You see, the studio has the right to make a film based on the character – but not John Clark, a character that appears in his own set of Clancy novels – without the permission of author, and so they’re going to come up with their own story for a new Ryan movie.

Originally, Paramount planned on using Clancy’s “Red Rabbit” as the stencil for the next Ryan movie – even attaching Ben Affleck to the film – but after tills failed to ring for “The Sum of All Fears”, starring Affleck, they ditched the idea of a ‘young Ryan’ series and of the young actor carrying on with the role. It’s assumed this new Ryan movie will feature a new lead.

Clancy is still involved in the film versions of “Splinter Cell”, “Without Remorse” and “Rainbow Six”.
