Sam Raimi In Negotiations With Paramount To Direct Tom Clancy Movies


    Variety is reporting that Paramount Pictures is in negotiations with Spider-man director, Sam Raimi to direct a series of movies based on Tom Clancy’s character, Jack Ryan. We have seen Jack Ryan in earlier movies such as The Hunt For Red October, where Alec Baldwin played Jack Ryan, Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, where Harrison Ford played Jack Ryan. Ben Affleck also played Jack Ryan, but a younger Jack, in The Sum Of All Fears. I love Espionage films, especially ones that are based on Tom Clancy books. I personally liked Harrison Ford as the CIA analyst the best. Not so sure about Ben Affleck though.

Sam Raimi will direct Drag Me To Hell first which will start filming March 31, 2008. Paramout Pictures is pushing for a 2010 release for the first of the new Jack Ryan films. In the new films, Jack Ryan will be a younger Jack, which I do not think fans of the books will be too happy with. If you’re a Raimi fan or a Jack Ryan fan, this is pretty interesting news. We would love to hear what you think about this story! We’ll keep you posted!
