Back in July 2009, it was announced that George Clooney would perhaps play the next Jack Ryan in the reboot of the franchise based on the Tom Clancy novels. Now according to Variety, Chris Pine (“Star Trek”) is in negotiations to play the next Jack Ryan.

Alec Baldwin was the first to portray Jack Ryan in “The Hunt for the Red October”. Harrison Ford took over for two films, “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger” and in an effort to relaunch the franchise, Ben Affleck took over the part in “The Sum of All Fears” (2002).

I can imagine that if Pine were cast as the next Jack Ryan, the franchise might take a similar approach as J.J. Abrams remake of “Star Trek” where the reboot would tell the story of how Jack Ryan became part of the CIA or rather events leading up to it.
