Somewhat crassly given author Tom Clancy’s passing earlier today, Paramount Pictures has decided to unveil the first poster for director Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. The film stars Chris Pine as the classic Clancy character that was previously 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 time around, Ryan is a Moscow-based financial analyst who faces off against his employer when he discovers a plot to finance a terrorist attack designed to collapse the U.S. economy. There has been word that Paramount might be considering moving Jack Ryan to next year and giving The Wolf of Wall Street its current December 25th release date, and fittingly this poster simply says “Coming Soon.”
Hit the jump to check out the poster and stay tuned for the debut trailer, which should be heading our way soon. The film also stars Branagh, Keira Knightley, Peter Andersson, and Kevin Costner. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is currently set to open in theaters on Christmas Day.
