Jack Ryan TV Series continues development at Amazon
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the previously-announced Jack Ryan TV series has landed at Amazon, where development will continue. Writer Graham Roland will executive produce the series along with Lost‘s Carlton Cuse is and Lindsey Springer of Carlton Cuse Productions. In addition, Platinum Dunes co-founders Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will executive produce the series with Mace Neufeld, who produced all five films based on the Ryan character.
The series will reportedly show Ryan “in his prime” as a CIA operative, providing a new take from the films and using the various books from author Tom Clancy’s bibliography as a jumping off point.
Ryan made his literary debut with the 1984 novel The Hunt for Red October and has gone on to appear in countless Clancy novels. The character has appeared in five feature films since the 1990 adaptation of Red October, with actors Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine all having taken on the role.
