While Paramount may have a different view, I have serious doubts as to whether you can call "Jack Ryan" a franchise series. We'll see our fourth different actor, with a script not based on any Tom Clancy book.

In our current worldwide political climate, I'll be shocked if it hits even $100 million at the domestic box office.

My opinion is that Paramount should have continued to make Jack Ryan films based on the books, regardless of the fact that the Cold War has been long over. Aside for the excellent casting and direction, "The Hunt For Red October" still works today because it's an excellent film set in historical context, whether it's a work of fiction or not.

Interesting. Did not know it wasnt based on one of Clancys books.

Ive actually enjoyed all the films, even the Affleck one.

I would have enjoyed that. It's a compelling time period. I just watched Red October on NetFlix with my daughter (16 at the time) last Summer. She followed the plot well, thought it was interesting, and had an enjoyable experience watching the movie. Of course a lot of that might have to do with Sean Connery...but if a modern 16 year old girl can enjoy a 20+ year old movie about the Cold War, then that movie is holding up very well in my opinion.

Paramount has plans to release a new Jack Ryan movie, starring Chris Pine.

But once again, it's not based on any Tom Clancy book.

The movie is simply called Jack Ryan. Kenneth Branagh is directing.

I wish they would just do a complete reboot and follow the books with an ensemble cast and a charismatic Jack Ryan.

Yeah, well, me too.

The problem is locking in an actor for that many films, popularity, box office receipts, etc.

These aren't cheap films to make and Jack Ryan never entered the public consciousness like a James Bond.

Yeah, true. I just hate that there are so many good stories out there that don't seem to get made, or don't seem to get the treatment that would really show them off well.

A Jack Ryan series not based on the books? That makes me feel a bit ill, honestly. If you want to make a new character, make a new one. Jack was always a bit too reluctant of a spy and a goody two-shoes to build him into something else would just be someone completely different.
