"Jack Ryan," the newest adventure of Tom Clancy's signature hero, officially started production, and while we have high hopes for star Chris Pine and director/villain Kenneth Branaugh, there are also a few nagging fears that have us wondering how this will all play out.

These are our Hopes, Dreams, and Fears for "Jack Ryan."

Hopes

It wasn't that long ago that Tom Clancy was responsible for some of Hollywood's best and most popular thrillers, but in the decade since "The Sum of All Fears," the author's movie presence has been sorely missed. If handedly intelligently (and this is where we thank our lucky stars for Kenneth Branaugh), "Jack Ryan" could help set off a string of strong Clancy adaptations. We've had to sit through too many bland thrillers in recent years to stomach anything short of Clancy's best.

Dreams

Rumors have already begun to make the rounds on »
