Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have announced that filming has begun on Jack Ryan.

It's being directed by Kenneth Branagh in his next job behind the lens after helming Marvel Studios' 2011 comic book adaptation Thor.

Jack Ryan, starring Chris Pine (pictured above in the first still from the film), Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner, is shooting in New York, Moscow and London and is set for release on December 26, 2013, in the UK and Ireland.

Based on the Jack Ryan character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, the film is a contemporary action thriller set in the present day.

The original story, written by David Koepp (Angels & Demons, War of the Worlds), follows a young Jack as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers, Red) will produce through his Di Bonaventura Pictures banner, along with Mace Neufeld (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games) and David Barron (Harry Potter franchise).
