Shadow Recruit, directed by and co-starring Kenneth Branagh, is a reboot of Ryan's origin story that sees Pine inheriting the mantle from Alec Baldwin (The Hunt For Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games and Clear And Present Danger) and Ben Affleck (The Sum Of All Fears).
In this one, despite his relative youth, Jack Ryan is an established CIA covert analyst who discovers a sneaky Russian plot (by Branagh's Viktor Cherevin) to crash the U.S. economy. Naturally, stopping the evil plan won't happen by sitting behind a desk watching the stock market figures.
Add to the mix his mentor, William Harper (Kevin Costner) trying to help him stay alive, and his relationship with wife Cathy (Keira Knightley) and you've got the makings of a full on Ryan cocktail. From the looks of this first promo, Branagh and his team (including writer Adam Cozad tackling Tom Clancy's most famous character) are clearly looking to the likes of Bourne and the modern Bond for this one.
With David Paymer (Drag Me To Hell), Colm Feore (Thor) and Nonso Anozie (The Grey) among the cast, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is out in the UK on 26 December.
