Jack Ryan, hero of numerous Tom Clancy novels, has a director for his next adventure.  Vulture reports that Jack Bender is “a cat’s breath away” from directing Moscow, the next installment in the Jack Ryan franchise.  In the new film, Ryan (played by Chris Pine, who I think is a great choice for the role), 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.”  As we reported in April, Ryan is a Wall Street broker at the beginning of the film and (spoiler alert) eventually he has to save his wife as she’s been taken hostage by the billionaire.  However, it’s possible that since April these particular elements have either been changed or removed entirely.

Bender directed some of Lost‘s most popular episodes including “Walkabout”, “The Constant”, and the finales for each of the show’s six seasons (he also directed the all the season premieres except for the pilot and season five).  Vulture notes the fun fact that Bender is also a painter and was responsible for the Desmond’s expressionist mural inside the hatch.

    Bender is a brilliant director. When i heard he had directed a LOST episode, I knew it was gonna be the shit. And i was never let down, not once. They made sure he was directing the best screenplays for a reason – he knows how to film action and pace all types of scenes. I’m really happy to hear the he’s going to make a splash in the feature film world because I can’t think of someone who is more deserving. Just the LOST finale alone should get this guy any job in Hollywood that he wants.
