Steve Zaillian To Rewrite Paramount’s ‘Jack Ryan’

Steve Zaillian Steve Zaillian‘s boarding the project directed by Jack Bender (Lost), which will see Chris Pine (Star Track) step in the shows of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Allfleck to play the promising intellect analyst of the Tom Clancy novels. Due to Paramount Studio needs Pine for the “Star Track” sequel, the project will push the start date further, possibly by up to four or five weeks. Hossein Amini wrote a draft, then the studio shopped Adam Cozad‘s speculative screenplay “Dubai,” which reworked to a Jack Ryan film called “Moscow.” Now Steve Zaillian will do a run on the draft, and hopefully leave it in shooting outline. The starting point for the film is discussed in Clancy’s The Hunt for Red October, the original film that starred Alec Baldwin too. It is about a terrifying helicopter crash that nearly killed Ryan when he was a 23-year old Marine Corps platoon leader. He was the only member of the platoon to stay alive. Speaking of Zaillian must admit he most recently wrote the adaptation for David Fincher‘s new take on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and he’s signed to also adapt The Girl Who Played with Fire. He also won an Oscar for writing Schindler’s List. So if they’re spending the money for this guy, they have come close to making the movie. The picture was due to shoot in Budapest in March. If you like a thinking man’s thrillers, not only action movies, you will surely enjoy the new Jack Ryan. Jack Ryan – Secret Agent Man [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqLnFK3vN-8[/youtube]
