Since he burst onto the Shakespearean scene thirty-some-odd years ago, actor/director Kenneth Branagh has been called the second coming of Sir Laurence Olivier by those who know their Shakespeare. Now, they both have something else in common in addition to that whole "capable of performing tricky dialogue from the greatest writer of all time" thing: Branagh is now a Knight of the British Empire. So, next time you run into him, remember that it's Sir Kenneth, thank you very much.

After director Jack Bender left the project to pursue more television, it looked like Paramount's Chris Pine-starring reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise (with the character previously played Harrison Ford in 'Clear and Present Danger', Alec Baldwin in 'The Hunt for Red October' and Ben Affleck in 'The Sum of All Fears) was on the ropes. Not so, as Kenneth Branagh is now in talks to helm the as yet untitled Ryan adventure, with a script being currently reworked by David Koepp ('Jurassic Park', 'Carlito's Way')
