Untitled Tom Clancy Project Screenplay Nears Completion

The Jack Ryan Special Edition DVD Collection

That was fast! Just a day or so after Variety blogger Anne Thompson posts that George Clooney is interested in assuming the role of Tom Clancy's CIA analyst Jack Ryan, she writes that screenwriter Hossein Amini has a first draft of an "Untitled Tom Clancy Project" nearing completion. She calls it an "original screenplay", which strongly suggests that it isn't adapted from one of Clancy's thrillers. She also doesn't mention whether it's written for a younger Jack Ryan or a role that George Clooney could play.

Anne Thompson opens her post with a somewhat rhetorical question: "Am I the only one who still adores The Hunt for Red October?" Our answer is an emphatic "No!" We watch it at least once a year and continue debate the finer points of how realistic the film is (or isn't) with our closest friends. (For those keeping score, we're right, they're wrong.)

We'll keep you posted on details as they emerge.
