Chris Pine learns the secret handshake as 'Jack Ryan' -- PHOTOS

As Tom Clancy’s legendary Jack Ryan, Chris Pine is boldly going where no man has gone before — except Alec Baldwin…and Harrison Ford…and Ben Affleck. (But who remembers The Sum of All Fears anyways?) Thus far, we haven’t seen much from Pine’s Jack Ryan, which is still filming. But in case you’re feeling desperate for your next Ryan fix (he did look good on that motorcycle), here are two new images (courtesy of USA Today) of Pine in character, including one featuring Kevin Costner as Ryan’s mentor. (Irony alert: Costner was initially offered the Ryan role that went to Baldwin for The Hunt for Red October.)

Jack Ryan serves as an origin story of sorts for the CIA analyst, who’s previously appeared in Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, and the lackluster Sum of All Fears. The movie centers on a young Ryan as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot headed up by a Russian oligarch played by none other than Kenneth Branagh (who is also the film’s director). Check out the two new pics below: READ FULL STORY

Chris Pine takes a spin as Jack Ryan -- FIRST PHOTO

Chris Pine already knows how to successfully fill the shoes of a movie icon, starring as James T. Kirk in 2009′s Star Trek. On Christmas 2013, he’ll become Jack Ryan, Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst who inevitably finds himself forced into dashing field heroics. Pine is sticking to what worked for him the first time around on Star Trek to make a first impression: riding a motorcycle.

In the just released image from Paramount, Pine’s younger, more stylish Ryan speeds through a city on a sporty Ducati motorcycle. In the new reboot, directed by Kenneth Branagh — who also stars as the villain — and co-starring Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner, Ryan is updated from his Cold War origins to the post 9/11 world. But he still might find himself coming face-to-face with some frisky Russians… READ FULL STORY

Kenneth Branagh to direct the new Jack Ryan film?

EW has confirmed Variety report that Thor director Kenneth Branagh is in negotiations to direct the yet untitled Jack Ryan film for Paramount.

Based on the character created by Tom Clancy (and previously portrayed by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck), Chris Pine (Star Trek) is on board to star, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura producing. A source close to the negotiations says they’re hoping to start production in September.

Branagh, an Oscar nominee, most recently for his supporting role in My Week With Marilyn, proved he could direct more than just art-house fare when Thor pulled in $449 million worldwide.
