'Jack Ryan' clip: Chris Pine's analyst revisits the cold war -- VIDEO

Jan. 17 isn’t typically a release date that instills a lot of confidence in a film, but I’m stubbornly optimistic that the Jack Ryan reboot with Chris Pine, which got bumped from a prime Christmas date by the delayed Wolf of Wall Street, delivers the thrills I remember from the best Tom Clancy novels and films. One thing that gives me hope: the bad guys seem to be actual Russians.

Apparently, director Kenneth Branagh didn’t get the memo that you can’t make movies with Chinese or Russian villains (since you might alienate a crucial segment of your international audience. See Red Dawn.) I suspect the late Tom Clancy wouldn’t have lent his name and characters to any movie that featured his favorite hero battling Latvian street-toughs or some other second-tier baddies. True to Clancy’s cold-war books, Pine’s Jack Ryan visits Russia, where he faces an oligarch (Branagh) plotting to crash the U.S. economy.

In this extended action-scene, Pine’s green analyst gets introduced to old-school Russian hospitality. READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Chloe Moretz to star in 'November Criminals,' Plus Chris Pine, more

Carrie star Chloë Moretz has signed on to star in the big-screen adaptation of Sam Munson’s 2010 novel November Criminals for Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. The novel tells the story of Addison, a D.C.-based high school senior who becomes obsessed with investigating the murder of one of his classmates while applying for colleges. Moretz will play the part of Phoebe. The lead role has yet to be cast. [The Wrap]


'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' trailer: Chris Pine reignites Tom Clancy's cold war tension -- VIDEO

Though author Tom Clancy sadly passed away this week at the age of 66, his literary-to-cinema-legacy lives on.

His most iconic character, Jack Ryan, returns to the big screen this holiday season. (Probably.) Subterfuge, high-caliber explosions, and geopolitical intrigue are all jam-packed in the new trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the reboot stars Chris Pine as Ryan, a CIA analyst thrust into the field once he uncovers a nefarious Russian plot against the United States economy. In the trailer, Ryan tells his CIA handler Harper (Kevin Costner) “You know, you sold this as an office job.” But Ryan finds it’s anything but a simple cubicle life, as his career affects those closest to him, like fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).

Two princes kneel before you: Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine in talks to join 'Into the Woods'

The latest stars to be subjected to “yes, but can they sing?” scrutiny: Heartthrobs Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine, potentially. EW has confirmed that Gyllenhaal is in talks to join Disney’s film adaptation of Into the Woods, the 1987 Stephen Sondheim musical about interwoven fairy tales. Deadline writes that Pine, too, is in talks for the film, though his rep would not confirm the news.

The actors are up for the roles of Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince. There’s no word yet on which would be playing which. (Cinderella’s Prince is the bigger part, though.)

If their deals go through, Gyllenhaal and Pine will join a cast that already includes Meryl Streep (The Witch), Gavin & Stacey‘s James Corden (The Baker), and Johnny Depp (The Wolf, a role traditionally played by the same actor as Cinderella’s Prince in stage productions). A screenplay reading last October featured actors including Anna Kendrick (Cinderella) and Allison Janney (Jack’s Mother), though there’s no word yet on whether any of those actors will be cast in the film.

Details on Pine’s role have not yet been revealed. [The Wrap] READ FULL STORY
