Meirelles, Gosling in Talks for Next Jack Ryan Pic


Moviehole this morning reported that Fernando Meirelles, director of such acclaimed films as City of Men, The Constant Gardener and City of God, is the frontrunner to helm By Any Means Necessary, which may star Ryan Goslin (Lars and the Real Girl) as Tom Clancy’s hero Jack Ryan, previously played by Harrison Ford, Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck.

Brazilian website Cinema em Cena contacted Meirelles today and he confirmed that he is considering directing By Any Means Necessary. However, he said that he is not so sure about taking the job at the moment, because he is finishing Blindness and already has another project in development.

The story will not be based on a Clancy novel but will be an original script.
