Star Trek's Chris Pine is the latest actor looking to fill the shoes of Tom Clancy's best-selling fictional hero in the upcoming onscreen reboot "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit." A new international trailer has just been issued to entice audiences to get aboard Jack Ryan's first covert mission where our young hero is a CIA analyst who uncovers a terrorist plot that's looking to collapse the US economy. Ryan is then recruited by his seasoned handler (Kevin Costner) to lead the mission to take down the Russian criminal mastermind (Kenneth Branagh) who has just taken his fiancée hostage (played by Keira Knightley).
Based on the character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan” is a global action thriller set in the present day. This original story follows a young Jack (Chris Pine) as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot. The story follows him from 9/11, through his tour of duty in Afghanistan, which scarred him forever, and into his early days in the Financial Intelligence Unit of the modern CIA where he becomes an analyst, under the guardianship of his handler, Harper (Kevin Costner). When Ryan believes he’s uncovered a Russian plot to collapse the United States economy, he goes from being an analyst to becoming a spy and must fight to save his own life and those of countless others, while also trying to protect the thing that's more important to him than anything, his relationship with his fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).
