Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, who has made his appearance in around 20 of his novels till date, is soon to appear in Television adaptation. Read for more information.
Yes, a TV adaptation is under process by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and Paramount TV which will feature the CIA analyst not in his old form but in a contemporary look. “New contemporary take on the character in his prime as a CIA analyst/operative using the novels as source material,” reported Deadline.
It was also revealed that the co-showrunner and writer of ABC’s “Lost” namely Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, respectively, will be attached to this character’s upcoming TV series as helmers on which five movies have been made so far.
Famous actors like Alec Baldwin in 1990’s “The Hunt for Red October,” Ben Affleck in 2002’s “The Sum of All Fears,” Chris Pine in 2014’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” and Harrison Ford in two films namely “Patriot Games” (1992), and “Clear and Present Danger” (1994), were previously seen in the get-up of agent Ryan on big screen.
As we all know that there is no definite get-up for Jack Ryan like James Bond of “Bond” series or Ethan Hunt of “Mission Impossible” series, so, it will not be a difficult task to find out the lead actor who will appear as Ryan on small screen.
As far as the Network part is concerned, it has not been revealed or we can say not finalized yet, but one thing is sure that the show can be picked up by some famous network for its thriller approach just the way USA picked Cuse’s “The Colony” last year.

Well, all in all it is going to be a big project, though for small screen. Other things related to it have not been disclosed yet. So, keep reading the space for more updates on the same.
