A New Jack Ryan Adventure?

by | November 23, 2006 | Comments

Apparently Paramount is trying to re-invigorate their Jack Ryan franchise, and through some bizarre legal loopholes, it seems they can do it without the involvement of Ryan’s creator, Tom Clancy.

According to Movieweb: "Although he’s no longer involved in the series, Australian filmmaker Phillip Noyce, who directed Jack Ryan films Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, tells Moviehole that he’s heard that the wheels are in motion to put C.I.A agent Ryan back on the big screen. But no, he won’t be involved and by the sounds of it, neither will the man who invented the popular literary character.

Apparently there’s a legal loophole that enables the studio to make a film based on the character – without getting Clancy’s input.

According to Noyce, Paramount is looking to re-launch the Jack Ryan film series that began with 1990’s The Hunt for Red October … only this time, the film would not be based on one of Tom Clancy’s books."
