and Plot Summary
Posted: April 12th, 2010 by Staff

Up until now, all we knew about the new Jack Ryan installment was that Chris Pine (Star Trek) was taking on the role, that the film will not be an origins story, and that it will not be based on a Tom Clancy novel. Pajiba has now picked up a few more details, including the plot summary and a tentative title.

The movie will pick up with Jack Ryan working as a Wall Street stock broker. In the Clancy novels, he was a successful financial analyst in Baltimore for Merrill Lynch after his stint in the Marines and before he joined the CIA.

Ryan will be transferred to Moscow to continue his finance-related work, but he will not be working for Merrill Lynch. Instead, he has been hired by some billionaire employer, who eventually sets him up to take the fall for a terrorist plot designed to collapse the US economy. Ryan must race against time to clear his name, reveal the terrorist plot and save his wife, who has been taken hostage by the employer.

The story sounds similar to Adam Cozad's abandoned "Dubai" script. That's not surprising, considering that Cozad is actually writing the Jack Ryan film. It looks like he got the job in order to absorb parts of "Dubai" into "Moscow," which is what the Jack Ryan film is being called. If that's the case, expect lots of chase scenes and lots of action.

For those who don't know, Alec Baldwin originated the character in 1990's "The Hunt for Red October," Harrison Ford played him in 1992's "Patriot Games" and 1994's "Clear and Present Danger," and Ben Affleck played Ryan in 2002's "The Sum of All Fears."

The Jack Ryan novels are really cool spy thrillers and the 2 Harrison Ford movies are great adapations of the books. I didn't really care for Alec Baldwin as Jack Ryan, nor did I think Affleck was great at it either.
