[Movies] Jack Ryan Cast And Crew Reveal Why They Rebooted The Franchise
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.07.2013



During an interview with IGN, the cast and crew of Jack Ryan revealed why they decided to reboot the franchise. The series began in 1990 with The Hunt for Red October (starring Alec Baldwin as Ryan) continued with Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger (both starring Harrison Ford) and The Sum of All Fears (starring Ben Affleck). The reboot will star Chris Pine.

Kenneth Branagh directs and plays the villain. The film takes place in both New York and Moscow. Here are highlights:

Producer Mace Neufield on getting the reboot made: "I've been trying to restart [the franchise] for nine years, but with executive changes and having really run out of books we could do. What triggered it was [producer] Lorenzo [di Bonaventura] saying we could go to a green-light with Kenneth. We had lunch – he had read the script and liked it and had some suggestions, but more than that he had gone beyond the call of duty and read every Tom Clancy book. And that's a lot of pages. And he had seen all of the movies, and was totally prepared and very enthusiastic."

Producer David Barron on why Chris Pine was cast: "Having Chris Pine as Jack Ryan furthered the advance of this particular film and hopefully others to follow. He's a really strong contemporary hero. He's good looking, clean-cut, the camera likes him. He's an easy hero to put at the centre of a film like this, and what we hope will be a series of films like this."

Kevin Costner on getting a role in the film: ""I was offered the Jack Ryan series back in the very beginning," he explained. "I couldn't do it – I think it was Hunt for Red October, and I couldn't do it because I had already postponed Dances with Wolves for one year. And now I had a chance to do this Red October, but I had already assembled my crew and put my money into it. And then they offered me a lot of money to do it – more than I had ever seen. And I said ‘No, doesn't mean more. It's just no.' And it was like, ‘Ah, that silly little Indian movie.' And I started to think it was a silly little Indian movie, but I went off and did that and never caught back up."
