Paramount’s Kenneth Branagh-directed thriller is said to have begun test-screening its first trailer under the name Jack Ryan: Shadow One.
The film will see Pine take the title character back to his early years, following him from the Marines to his recruitment into the CIA by Kevin Costner’s Langley analyst.
According to Slash Film, Ryan and Costner’s William Harper will take on a Russian oligarch (Branagh) who’s manipulating the stock market and tied to global terrorism.
Keira Knightley features in the supporting cast as Ryan’s wife Cathy.
Clancy’s government agent has been portrayed by Alec Baldwin (in The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger) and Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fears).

So very happy to hear he’s officially confirmed for this! It sounds very interesting!
BroadwayWorld has exclusively learned exciting new information and is thrilled to confirm casting for the major roles in the forthcoming Disney feature film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim & James Lapine’s adored and adorable fairy tale-themed musical INTO THE WOODS, directed by Rob Marshall.
A source close to the production has confirmed casting for the majority of the roles now that official casting for the highly anticipated big screen tuner is almost complete, with the big budget production set to start shooting in the UK in a few weeks.
Leading INTO THE WOODS will be acclaimed stage and screen superstar Meryl Streep as The Witch, James Corden as The Baker, Emily Blunt as The Baker’s Wife, Johnny Depp as The Wolf, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as Cinderella’s Prince, Billy Magnussen as Rapunzel’s Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Lucy Punch as Lucinda, Tammy Blanchard as Florinda, Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Mother and Tracey Ullman as Jack’s Mother.
It seems Chris is lining em up following the highly anticipated sequel to the ’09 Star Trek reboot, Star Trek Into Darkness, which hit theaters today. The Hollywood Reporter reports Chris will join Amanda Seyfried in the post-apocalyptic thriller titled ‘Z For Zachariah’. You can read more about the film below:
Chris Pine, Amanda Seyfried, and Chiwetel Ejiofor are starring in Z For Zachariah, a post-apocalyptic feature that will be directed byCraig Zobel.
Tobey Maguire is producing via his Material Pictures banner along with the company’s senior vp Matthew Plouffe. Zik Zak Filmworks’ Skuli Malmquist, Thor Sigurjonsson and Palomar Pictures’ Joni Sighvatsson are also producing.
Zachariah is a psychological thriller, set after an apocalyptic event. It centers on a teenaged girl (Seyfried) who is seemingly the sole survivor until a scientist (Ejiofor) finds her farm, and the two fall in love. Another survivor, a young man (Pine), surfaces, complicating matters.
An August shoot is being planned.
In the midst of the frenzy surrounding the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, Chris Pine has revealed where he’ll boldly go next. EW has confirmed that Pine will appear in comedic thriller Stretch, a project that reunites the actor with Joe Carnahan, who directed one of Pine’s earliest films, 2006?s Smokin’ Aces. Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) will star in the new film as a down-on-his-luck chauffeur who drives around a mysterious billionaire to get rid of his debt. Details on Pine’s role have not yet been revealed.
The mere idea of Chris in the same film as Johnny Depp and the irreplaceable Meryl Streep, already has me ecstatic but add Jake into the mix, and I’m bouncing up and down from excitement. This sounds like a fantastic opportunity for Chris, and I look forward to where this leads.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine are in discussions to join Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep in Disney’s adaptation of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Deal-making hasn’t quite begun but the two actors met and even sang for director Rob Marshall for their respective parts and are expected to receive offers to join the star-studded cast.
If deals close, Gyllenhaal and Pine would play their first on-screen singing roles.
Into the Woods is a darkly comic mash-up of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless baker and his wife, who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.
Streep will play the plum role of the vain and charismatic Witch while Depp will play a hungry and sexy variation of a fairy tale wolf.
Sources say that Gyllenhaal and Pine would play the musical’s two princes, Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince, brothers who are pompous and self-absorbed.
