What Happened to Jack Ryan?
Where have all the good political action thrillers gone?
The answer. Down with Ben Affleck’s action career. Because of the lackluster box office recipts of Sum of All Fears, plans were scrapped to continue the Jack Ryan series with Affleck and studio heads decided to wait for the general public to forget that the movie ever existed. Which seems to be NOW.
Our favorite action hero Jack Ryan has been tagged to a new movie without the involvement of Tom Clancy. They have had a series of directors attached including Phillip Noyce who directed the Harrison Ford movies in the series. But it seems that they have settled on raw edgy directors like Anton Fuqua or Fernando Meirelles.
Now you ask who are they going to have in the lead role. Ryan Gosling?!?! WTF! Does he exude testosterone like Harrison Ford or Ben Affleck (ouch!)? I don’t think so. He makes you cry because he appears in Nicholas Sparks movies.
I guess we should just be happy that Jack Ryan may one day end up on the big screen again.
