Amazon’s ‘Jack Ryan’ Trailer: John Krasinski Bumbles Around as the Young CIA Agent (Video)

  • The Wrap
Amazon released a new trailer for the upcoming eight-episode first season of “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” on Monday, a drama that features John Krasinski in the titular role previously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and Chris Pine.

But Krasinski’s Jack Ryan is different than all the others, as co-creator Carlton Cuse (“Lost”) told Entertainment Weekly the series — which has already been renewed for a Season 2 ahead of its premiere — sets up how the badass we all know and love came to be.

“It’s sort of a prequel to the versions of him that you meet in the movies and books,” Cuse said. The show follows Jack Ryan at a “critical moment where he goes from being an analyst to being an operative in the CIA.”

Netflix orders Locke & Key TV series

Having been passed on by Hulu back in March, the planned TV adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s comic book series Locke & Key has found a new home at streaming giant Netflix.

Deadline is reporting that Netflix is in final talks for a series order, although it will be redeveloping the project – and recasting two of the three Locke children – rather than picking up the existing pilot, which was directed by Andy Muschietti (It).

Locke & Key revolves around three siblings who move with their mother to their ancestral home in Maine following the gruesome murder of their father, and soon discover that the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. However, little do they know, a devious demon also wants the keys, and will stop at nothing to attain them.

A Locke And Key Series is Finally Going to Happen Thanks to Netflix!

Joe Hill's comic Locke and Key has been trying to get a proper series adaptation for years! It was most recently close to happening with Hulu. They actually ordered a pilot episode that was directed by It director Andy Muschietti, but they ended up passing on the project.

Finally, after eight years of development, Netflix is now on board to bring the series to life. In its long road to get to this point, Fox ordered a pilot for the series back in 2010 with Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) attached, and Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Steven Spielberg were all on board as executive producers. After it screened at Comic-Con and got rave reviews, the network passed on it. Universal Pictures then jumped in to try and adapt it as a feature film, but that didn't work out either.

Locke & Key Series Heading to Netflix?

In its journey to the screen (both big and small), the adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez's Locke & Key comic book series has been in development at Fox, Universal, and most recently, Hulu. After ordering a Locke & Key pilot episode that was directed by It filmmaker Andy Muschietti, the streaming network decided not to move forward with a full series, but now the adaptation could find a home on another streaming service: Netflix.

According to multiple sources, including The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is "near a series-order deal" for a Locke & Key adaptation. A pilot episode of the series (the second pilot episode the adaptation has received—another one was made for Fox in 2011) had already been created for Hulu with Muschietti at the helm, and a writers' room reportedly put together seven scripts for the show, but Netflix wants to take the adaptation in a different direction,
