Opening this weekend in theaters and IMAX is director Kenneth Branagh’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.  Based on the Tom Clancy character, the original story follows Jack Ryan (played by Chris Pine) as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot.  Starring alongside Pine is Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley with Branagh as the film’s antagonist. 

A few days ago I got to talk to Chris Pine at the Los Angeles press day.  He talked about the film’s long development process, whether there was any dramatic shift in the story during that time, if he collects anything, and more.  In addition, Pine talked about making Horrible Bosses 2 and Joe Carnahan‘s action-comedy Stretch, saying the opening scene of the latter “may end my career.”  Hit the jump to watch.


Finally, if you missed any of my Jack Ryan set visit coverage, here’s my recap with a video blog, and on set interviews with Pine, Branagh, Costner, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and producers David Barron and Mace Neufeld.

Chris Pine:

  • Was this a challenging shoot?
  • How Jack Ryan isn’t Jason Bourne and he’s got to do a lot with his brain.  Was it difficult to portray that on screen?
  • Does he collect anything?
  • Was there any dramatic shift in the story during the development process?
  • Talks about Joe Carnahan’s Stretch and Horrible Bosses 2.  Says the tone of Stretch is like nothing you’ve ever witnessed.  Also says the opening scene “may end my career.”
