Chris Pine returns to play the lead role in one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Pine will play Tom Clancy’s iconic character, Jack Ryan, with supporting roles from actors Kevin Costner and Keira Knightly.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor), Shadow Recruit is not an adaptation of a single novel like other films in the Jack Ryan series. This screenplay, written by Adam Cozad and Davis Koepp, is set before the original novels and offers an earlier look into Ryan’s life. We meet a recent graduate, fresh from the London School of Economics, wounded while serving in the Marines—Jack Ryan before he becomes a brilliant, young analyst for the CIA’s Financial Intelligence Unit.
When Ryan follows a trail of suspicious transactions made by Russian billionaire, Cherevin, he uncovers a suspected terrorist plot to destroy the U.S. economy. Without strong intelligence, Ryan’s CIA handler forces him into the field to verify his findings.
Once in Moscow, Ryan quickly becomes a target himself and must fight to save his life and clear his name. Yet, he may be too late to stop the attack or save his relationship with his fiancée.
