Screenwriter Anthony Peckham (Sherlock Holmes) has been tapped to work on the script for Paramount’s upcoming Jack Ryan flick.  Tentatively titled “Moscow“, the film will star Chris Pine with Jack Bender (Lost) at the helm.  Heat Vision doesn’t offer any details on the current plot beyond saying it will “tell the story of Ryan’s early career [and is] in Russia, with terrorist acts as a backdrop.”  Last month, we reported that Ryan is “fresh-from-the-Marines and goes to work as an analyst for a Russian billionaire, but winds up on the run after being implicated in a terrorist plot.”  The new Ryan movie will serve as a reboot for the franchise and Paramount is hoping to begin shooting later this year or early 2011.  The last Jack Ryan film was 2002’s The Sum of All Fears.

Peckham’s other screenwriting credits include Invcitus and Don’t Say a Word.  He also worked on The Book of Eli.
