Chris Pine’s starring turn in the new Jack Ryan movie for Paramount may push back shooting on “Star Trek (2012)”…but not to the point that it would delay its release. Details over the jump.
According to Heat Vision | THR, Paramount is in negotiations with Steve Zaillian to rewrite the new Jack Ryan movie, which will star Chris Pine.
Filming was scheduled to begin in Budapest next month, but has now been pushed back to the spring.
Paramount has every intention of making this movie happen, and bringing Zaillian on board — which will push the start date back up to four or five weeks — could in turn force the studio to “slightly” delay the production start date of “Star Trek (2012).” However, such a delay would not push back the film’s currently slated release date (June 29, 2012):
“…although Paramount can’t risk any more time since the studio needs Pine for the Star Trek sequel, which will also likely be nudged slightly, but not enough to impact its release date.”
The “Star Trek” sequel currently has that date all to itself, but Sony’s 3D “Spider-Man” reboot hits theaters just five days later on Wednesday, July 4, 2012. “Jack Ryan” will be directed by “LOST” director Jack Bender.
Chris Pine most recently co-starred alongside Denzel Washington in Tony Scott’s action thriller “Unstoppable”. He’s currently filming “Welcome to People”, an original drama co-written by “Star Trek (2009)” scribes Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci and directed by Kurtzman (his directorial debut). “Welcome to People” is scheduled to hit theaters in 2012.
