If you guys remember I posted the information last month on how you the fans could vote for Chris, who is nominated for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in this years re-make of Star Trek along with the movie itself for the SpikeTV 2009 Scream Awards!

There is only 10 days left to vote and I would really love if we could get Chris or Star Trek up there, because we know they deserve it!


Twenty-nine-year-old Chris Pine has some big shoes to fill. Not only did he take over William Shatner’s portrayal of Captain Kirk in the latest Star Trek installment, but he’s also signed up to portray Jack Ryan — the role made famous by Harrison Ford.

Jack Ryan is a character involved in the CIA (and who ultimately becomes US President) dreamed up by writer Tom Clancy for a series of noteworthy books and films. Alec Baldwin played him in The Hunt for Red October, while Ford took over for Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger. Eight years later, Ben Affleck took the role in The Sum of All Fears.

According to People, the president of Paramount issued the following statement: “Tom Clancy created an unforgettable character with Jack Ryan. With Chris in this role, we’ve taken our first step in creating a re-boot that lives up to the successful lineage of the franchise.”

Congrats to Chris!


AN: I think this sounds like a great role for Chris, and I personally believe he will make Jack Ryan his own. I can’t wait for more information to be released.

Paramount Pictures has begun negotiations with Chris Pine to play CIA analyst Jack Ryan in the reboot of the franchise based on the Tom Clancy novels.

Pine is positioned to topline his second Par franchise. He played James T. Kirk in “Star Trek,” the JJ Abrams-directed summer hit, and will reprise in the sequel.

Pine is separately in talks to team with director D.J. Caruso in the Paramount drama “The Art of Making Money,” early next year.
Talks are just getting underway, but Pine is expected to come aboard the Jack Ryan film as the project takes shape. The studio and producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mace Neufeld are working with a script draft by Hossein Amini, based on an original concept. They are still in deep development and it is unclear whether Pine would make another “Star Trek” before the Jack Ryan film. He will clearly be working often for Paramount over the next several years.

Pine, currently starring with Denzel Washington in the Tony Scott-directed “Unstoppable” for Fox, is vying to be the fourth actor to play Ryan, the CIA analyst in the Par film series.

Alec Baldwin originated the character in 1990’s “The Hunt for Red October,” Harrison Ford played him in 1992’s “Patriot Games” and 1994’s “Clear and Present Danger,” and Ben Affleck played Ryan in 2002’s “The Sum of All Fears.”


Variety’s reporting Chris Pine (hot off his starring role as Captain Kirk in Star Trek) and director D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye, Disturbia) are in negotiations to join The Art of Making Money. Pine, who’s been very picky about which projects he takes on since scoring success as the new Kirk, is currently filming Unstoppable, the action drama that hit a few speedbumps before heading into production. Caruso’s linked to a few projects (Y: The Last Man, The Defenders, Dead Space), none of which are real close to getting underway.

According to Variety, Paramount’s looking to get The Art of Making Money into production as soon as early next year.

Frank Baldwin’s screenplay is based on the book The Art of Making Money: The Story of a Master Counterfeiter by Jason Kersten. Kersten’s book tells the true story of Art Williams, a Chicago man with a troubled childhood who became one of the most successful counterfeiters in modern history. If the deal goes through, Pine will play Williams.


AN: Whether this is 100% true or not I’m not sure, though I’ll see what I can do to find out how legitimate it is. If it is than I think it already sounds interesting and I would really love to see Chris in a role such as the article described, what about you guys?

I seriously can’t help but love Chris for his potty mouth. :) And seriously the irish accents at the end?! definitely funny!

Given his recent role as Captain James T. Kirk in this year’s phenomenally successful Star Trek, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that Chris Pine is an actor of many faces and of course, many roles.

Continuing their love-affair with all things Zombie, yet another scary, disease-ridden film has made it’s way down from the Hollywood Hills and stars the aforementioned Mr. Pine – and that film is CARRIERS.
