John Krasinski cast as Jack Ryan

30 April 2016 6:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last fall it was announced an unnamed Jack Ryan television series, based off the Tom Clancy novels, was in development over at Amazon Studios. Now comes news that The Office and 13 Hours star John Krasinski has been cast in the lead as CIA analyst Jack Ryan.

Not much is known about the Jack Ryan series, but it will reportedly feature the character in his prime at the CIA, using Clancy’s extensive novels as a backdrop. Considering many of the novels are set in the 1980s and 90s, the series will instead be modernized to take place during the current global and political climate.

Jack Ryan was first introduced in Clancy’s debut novel The Hunt for Red October in 1984. That book launched a book series, several films starring Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and most recently Chris Pine, and the Rainbow Six video game franchise, as well as other Clancy game franchises. »

The Office Star John Krasinski Is The New Jack Ryan

30 April 2016 6:27 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jim Halpert is your new Jack Ryan. Deadline is reporting that John Krasinski, former star of NBC's hit comedy The Office, has signed on to portray the latest incarnation of Jack Ryan. This news comes a few months after we originally received word that Paramount TV & Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes were developing a television series based on Tom Clancy's popular CIA hero for Amazon with a series commitment and the Lost duo of Carlton Cuse & Graham Roland attached as co-showrunners.  The potential series will be a more contemporary take on Jack Ryan, following him in his prime as a CIA analyst/operative and will only use the novels as source material. The project hasn't officially been greenlit just yet, but the addition of Krasinski certainly bodes well for the show's chances. Krasinski is the latest in a long line of actors to tackle the role of Ryan, following »

The character of Jack Ryan has appeared in five films so far; The Hunt For Red October with Alec Baldwin, Patriot Games and Clear And Present Danger with Harrison Ford, The Sum Of All Fears with Ben Affleck, and finally Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit which had Chris Pine taking on the role. Unfortunately the latest Jack Ryan film squandered its great cast in a sub-par story and it seemed as though the... Read More »

John Krasinski Is 'Jack Ryan' In New Amazon Series

29 April 2016 5:08 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last fall it was announced that Jack Ryan, the Tom Clancy created hero that has seen a steady decline from the heydey of "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear And Present Danger," to the the nadir of "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," was going to be revived. We all just told our Dads, moved on, and forgot about it, but indeed, it's still happening. Read More: Review: 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' With Chris Pine, Keira Knightley & Kevin Costner Jim from "The Office" aka John Krasinski has been tapped to play the CIA analyst in "Jack Ryan." It might seem like an odd choice, but Michael Bay is among the series producers, and he cast the actor in his recent "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi," so there you go. Also shepherding the show is "Lost" pair Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland. Rather than focus on Jack Ryan as a newbie, »

John Krasinski Is The New TV Jack Ryan

29 April 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"The Office" and "13 Hours" star John Krasinski is set to play Jack Ryan, the popular CIA analyst and hero of Tom Clancy's novels, for a new TV series in the works at Amazon.

The streaming giant handed out a series commitment with the intention to go straight-to-series, but a green light hasn't been given just yet. The casting of Krasinski however will likely push it forward. "Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland are behind the project, along with Platinum Dunes and Skydance Media.

Five films have been made with the character including John McTiernan's cinematic classic "The Hunt for Red October," Phil Noyce's very well-regarded "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger," Phil Alden Robinson's respected "The Sum of All Fears" and Kenneth Branagh's disappointing "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit". Four actors have taken on the role including Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine. »

Eye in the Sky movie review: in the eyes of 21st-century warriors

15 April 2016 1:43 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

As entertaining on an escapist level as it is irrefutably engaging on a level that is essential for citizens who are players in our political environment. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

This is warfare today. It’s a colonel in a bunker in outer London (surrounded by computers) and a general in an office building in Whitehall (surrounded by politicians) and a drone pilot in Las Vegas (flying a robot armed with missiles and also, more importantly, with cameras, from thousands of miles away) and a facial-recognition technician at a workstation in Pearl Harbor and an agent of the Kenyan military on the ground in Nairobi collaborating in an operation to capture most-wanted terrorists in a civilian suburban neighborhood in a country that neither the Us nor the UK is at war with. »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Cast and Director Unveil the Big Secret | Exclusive

8 March 2016 6:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

10 Cloverfield Lane has been shrouded in secrecy. Produced by Paramount and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, the details of the film have been carefully guarded. The full trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane was released just two months before it opens this Friday. Nothing specific about the plot has leaked; just that it is a sequel of sorts to that hit monster movie from 2008, Cloverfield.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as Michelle, a young woman who wakes up after a car accident in a survival bunker. Disoriented and terrified, her captor or possibly savior, is Howard (John Goodman). He tells her that they have survived an apocalypse. Michelle's also surprised to find another occupant, Emit (John Gallagher Jr). That's all you really need to know before seeing the film. There are more than a few twists in 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Bale, Cooper Re-Team For "Hostiles"

18 February 2016 8:19 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Out of the Furnace" actor Christian Bale and director Scott Cooper are set to team for the western drama "Hostiles" which begins shooting this summer.

The story centers on a Native American-hating soldier, nearing retirement, who is given one last assignment: to escort an Indian chief back to his Montana reservation.

Along the way he comes across a young widow and fights back attacks by Comanche tribes - learning to respect the race he hates.

Donald Stewart ("The Hunt for Red October," "Patriot Games") penned the script which Cooper has since re-written. Jon Lesher and Ken Kao are producing.

Christian Bale Reteams With 'Out Of The Furnace' Director Scott Cooper For 'Hostiles'

18 February 2016 12:51 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

About a month ago, Christian Bale exited Michael Mann's brewing "Enzo Ferrari," citing fears that the weight gain needed for the role would endanger the health of the actor, who has definitely wildly bulked and slimmed down for roles in the past. The movie was going to shoot this summer, and leaving left a open slot on his calendar. But he's found a way to fill it. Christian Bale will reteam with his "Out Of The Furnace" director Scott Cooper for "Hostiles." Based on a reimagining of a manuscript by the late screenwriter Donald Stewart ("Missing," "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games," "Clear And Present Danger") the western will follow an Army captain who is tasked with bringing a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to their tribal lands. Here's the synopsis:  Set in 1892, Hostiles tells the story of a legendary Army captain, who after stern resistance, »

Everything Steven Soderbergh Watched and Read in 2015

6 January 2016 11:21 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Displaying a transparency that few filmmakers of his fame and / or caliber would even bother with, Steven Soderbergh has, for a couple of years, been keen on releasing lists of what he watched and read during the previous twelve months. If you’re at all interested in this sort of thing — and why not? what else are you even doing with your day? — the 2015 selection should be of strong interest, this being a time when he was fully enmeshed in the world of creating television.

He’s clearly observing the medium with a close eye, be it what’s on air or what his friends (specifically David Fincher and his stillborn projects) show him, and how that might relate to his apparent love of 48 Hours Mystery or approach to a comparatively light slate of cinematic assignments — specifically: it seems odd that the last time he watched Magic Mike Xxl, a »
