Pine’s Jack Ryan movie honing in on director from JJ Abrams’ team
In addition to being the new Kirk, Chris Pine has also been tapped by Paramount to head their relaunch of the Jack Ryan franchise. It isn’t yet confirmed, but it appears that production on Moscow, the next Ryan film, could be done before the Star Trek sequel (which goes before cameras next May or June). A sign that things are progressing comes from the New York Magazine’s Vulture Blog which is reporting that Jack Bender is close to sealing the deal to direct Moscow. Bender has spent most of the last decade working for JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof as the primary director and an executive producer on Lost.
