In late October, somewhere in central London, I got to visit the set of director Kenneth Branagh’s Jack Ryan franchise reboot, aptly named “Jack Ryan” along with a few other online reporters.  The film relaunches the famous Tom Clancy character that has previously been portrayed onscreen by Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger), and Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fears).  This film finds Chris Pine’s ex-Marine Jack Ryan working as a Moscow-based financial analyst who uncovers a plot by his employer to finance a terrorist attack designed to collapse the U.S. economy.  Branagh also plays the film’s villain, Keira Knightley is on board as the female lead, and Kevin Costner plays a CIA liaison.

While on set, I got to participate in some great interviews with the cast and filmmakers (the one with Costner was one of the best on set interviews I’ve ever done), and I learned a ton about the movie.  Hit the jump for more.

Since Jack Ryan doesn’t open for almost a year (December 25th), Paramount has only given me permission to write a preview piece.  What that essentially means is I can say I went to set, had a good time, and you can look forward to some great stuff later this year.

However, shortly after getting back from set I recorded two video blogs with Peter from /Film.  The first was a very detailed report of everything we saw and learned on set.  As you might imagine, that will be posted when the embargo lifts down the road.  But we also recorded a short preview and I can share that with you today.

Look for a lot more Jack Ryan set visit coverage later this year.
