It’s not often the first image for a film arrives before an official title has been announced, but that’s what’s happened with Paramount’s reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise, which has started shooting with Kenneth Branagh directing and Chris Pine playing the lead role.
The image shows Pine zooming along the Mahattan streets on a motorbike, although the main plot sees the young Jack Ryan heading to Moscow, looking at his life before he became a CIA operative. Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner and Branagh also star, with a Christmas 2013 release date set. (Image via Coming Soon)
UPDATE: Over the weekend another image was released, giving us out first look at Kevin Costner in the movie. Costner portrays William Harper, Ryan’s mentor, with the plan being that if this film is a success, Costner will get his own spin-off, Without Remorse.
