Ryan Gosling is the New Jack Ryan
The new film won’t be based on one of Clancy‘s books, but will still feature a young Jack Ryan (like Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears).
Both Harrison Ford and Australian filmmaker Philip Noyce, who brought us Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger), will not be returning to the Jack Ryan series. Alec Baldwin originated the character in 1990′s The Hunt for Red October.
Paramount apparently has the rights to make a film based on Jack Ryan and doesn’t need Clancy‘s permission to move forward with this film project.
