It’s been a few years since Ben Affleck ruined the Jack Ryan series for the world. Now, thankfully, Ben is distracted with his (pretty decent) work behind the camera, and Paramount is looking to get back into the franchise, this time with Sam Raimi in the directors chair.
The Jack Ryan films are based on the books by Tom Clancy about the CIA Analyst placed in extraordinary positions. Alec Baldwin first starred as Jack Ryan in The Hunt for Red October, and Harrison Ford in Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger. The studio is looking to bring Jack Ryan into a more modern setting, with a younger Jack Ryan.
Raimi would take this on after his next project, Drag Me to Hell.
