Update: Paramount has confirmed a December 25th, 2013 release date for the film.
Compared to this week’s other update, Deadline’s story is actually kind of minor. But if you are looking forward to Jack Ryan (as we can only call it right now), it should be in your interest to know Paramount will release their potential franchise-starter in the fourth quarter of 2013 — not necessarily Thanksgiving, and not necessarily Christmas. Only “somewhere between September of 2013 and that year’s end.”
Along with Chris Pine and Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley has officially been set to play Ryan’s wife, Caroline, who he must save when a Russian businessman (director Kenneth Branagh) is revealed to be crashing the United States economy. It’s the makings of an action romp filled with thrills, though Ryan isn’t in the CIA just yet; this reboot will, in the helmer’s own words, “[allow] us to understand how Jack Ryan develops into a CIA analyst.” I guess he did it by kicking ass.
There isn’t much else we can bring you at this time, considering Paramount have made (understandable) efforts to keep their project hush-hush for time being. When the big stuff finally comes, we’ll be sure to have it ready.
