JACK RYAN CHRIS PINE – Two new pictures from Jack Ryan show Chris Pine and Kevin Costner in the Kenneth Branagh directed origin movie. In the movie, the audience is brought back to when a injured Marine, Jack Ryan, is recruited by CIA vet Kevin Costner to work as a high-level analyst. Kenneth Branagh, besides directing, plays a Russian oligarch (played by Branagh) who is pulling the strings of the financial market and delving into international terrorism with potential global catastrophic results.
“He doesn’t drive great cars, he doesn’t know five different martial arts,” says Chris Pine. “He works in the CIA, but he’s a normal guy with a normal wife (fiancée, actually) thrown into these extraordinary circumstances.”
“We’re probably not going to be James Bond or Jason Bourne or Ethan Hunt,” says Branagh. “The audience feels they could just be Jack Ryan and they like him for that. If you ever wanted to be involved in global conspiracies and espionage, then Jack Ryan is the way in. And it puts us in the center of the story.”
PLOT: Jack Ryan segues from the Marine Corps to a position as a financial consultant for a Russian billionaire, where he’s framed in a terrorist plot and forced to go on the run.
