Paramount has released the first 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' trailer, a prequel to the established Jack Ryan stories that previously featured the likes of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck in the title role. But now Chris Pine is up at the plate.

Coming on the heels of the unfortunate news that author Tom Clancy passed away last night, the first poster for 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' -- inspired by the character created by Clancy -- has been revealed. The poster for the film, which stars Chris Pine in the Ryan role, prominently features Clancy's name -- seems like a pretty fitting tribute to the late author.
Tom Clancy, the hugely successful and prolific author behind the Jack Ryan series of books and multiple video game franchises, died at a hospital last night in Baltimore at the age of 66. His publisher confirmed the news to the New York Times but no cause of death has been announced.
Martin Scorsese's 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill, was looking to be one of the most interesting films of 2013. But as of right now, it's not finished, in all likelihood will not be ready for its originally announced November 15 release date, and may take 'Jack Ryan''s release date and bump that film into 2014.
We've seen a couple of images of Chris Pine in his 'Jack Ryan' incarnation already (see them here and here) and now we've been handed a couple more. Like the images before them, these are simply using Pine's face to promote the character and movie, which is good enough for us (for now). Check it out the new 'Jack Ryan' pics after the break.
Yesterday, we got our first look at Chris Pine in the currently shooting 'Jack Ryan.' Jaws dropped around the internet as we learned that Chris Pine will look very much like Chris Pine (on a motorcycle) in the role. It was a slightly underwhelming reveal, but hey, you've got to start somewhere with this whole publicity thing. Today brings us another image from the set and while it doesn't offer too much more, it does offer Kevin Costner, which is enough, really.
Chris Pine is in the process of rebooting his second high-profile character for Paramount Pictures, and 2013 is most likely the year he becomes a household name. We'll see him reprise the role of Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek 2' in May, while next winter brings us Pine take on Jack Ryan in, well, ' Jack Ryan.' If you were wondering what the latter character will look like, today's your lucky day, as the first image of Pine-as-Ryan has been revealed.
This Jack Ryan movie keeps moving forward, and now that it's filled the major pieces of casting, it just got a release date of December 25, 2013. So families tired of the holiday can sneak out and watch Chris Pine kill some Russians.
It seems that Paramount is taking a page out of 'The Avengers' notebook by casting Kevin Costner in not one, but two Tom Clancy adaptations as the same character. First up is the Kenneth Branagh Jack Ryan reboot, and then the Christopher McQuarrie adaptation of 'Without Remorse' -- the latter of which is eyeing Tom Hardy to lead.
Kenneth Branagh's upcoming 'Jack Ryan' film starring Chris Pine officially has a female lead in British actress Keira Knightley, who won the part over other prospective actresses like 'Lost''s Evangeline Lilly and 'Like Crazy''s Felicity Jones.
