The first poster and theatrical trailer from Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, starring Chris Pine, has been released.
Pine will be taking on the role of Jack Ryan in the movie.
In Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, “Jack Ryan [is taken] back to the early stages of his career in the CIA when a senior operative (Kevin Costner) enlists him for a covert operation in Moscow. The Cold War may be over, but there is a new threat to global stability in the form of Russian power player Victor Cherevin (Kenneth Branagh). Ryan begins to question if there is anyone he can trust, including his own wife (Keira Knightley).”
“I’m taking over for some pretty heavy hitters,” said Pine. “It can seem pretty daunting at times. But I have one job to do which is to bring this story and this character to life.”
“Bourne had his fists, Bond has Q, and Jack has his mind,” said Pine. “He’s a thinking man’s spy. His battle, which I find really compelling, is that while he may feel more comfortable behind a desk solving intellectual puzzles, he feels drawn to serve on the front lines.”
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will debut Christmas Day.
