Producer Mace Neufield was on hand at the press conference for the upcoming film Invictus and he also spoke his new Untitled Jack Ryan Project as well. He revealed that, "We pick him up while he's on Wall Street," and while Neufield wouldn't go into specifics on the film's story, he did have more to say about the film and the series in general.
The Jack Ryan movies have never been action films. They're kind of 'thinking man's thrillers'. Jack is refered to as a water-walker because of his ability to jump ahead to a conclusion. That's very big in all the Jack Ryan films and that's why we want to portray him. He's a teacher, he's a historian. He's a linguist and he's really smart.
Neufield revealed that Hossein Amini wrote the script with Adam Cozad in the midst of a rewrite. We announced in October that Chris Pine was set to star in the film.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all news surrounding this new installment in the popular franchise.
