Abbie Cornish (“Stop-Loss”, “Elizabeth : The Golden Age”) will play Cathy to John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan in Amazon’s new TV take on the Tom Clancy series.
Per Deadline, the series “centers on Jack Ryan (Krasinski), an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. The series follows Ryan as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale. Cornish will play Cathy Mueller, a doctor specializing in infectious diseases. She is intelligent, competitive, a rising star in the medical world and Jack’s love interest.”
The show hails from Paramount TV and Skydance TV and features a noteworthy board of producers including Michael Bay and Carlton Cuse (“Lost”). Mace Neufeld, who also produced the Jack Ryan series of movies, is back too.
