He helped revive one franchise, why not two? Reports this morning say that Chris Pine, best known for playing James Kirk in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek,” movie, will be playing Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan character in a re-boot of the series. Ryan had been played in previous movies by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. The new movie will reportedly not be based on a Clancy book, but instead will be a new original story. The script is still in the drafting stage, so, it is assumed that Pine will shoot the “Trek” sequel before tackling the Ryan role. I kind of fell off with the franchise after “Clear & Present Danger,” so, I’m hoping they get things back on track and produce one or two more entertaining spy movies.
