Kenneth Branagh To Play Jack Ryan Villain

Kenneth Branagh is already directing Paramount’s big screen reboot of the Tom Clancy’s espionage hero Jack Ryan. But the multi-talented director and stage actor now looks increasingly likely to also take on the role of the film’s main villain.

Branagh would be playing an evil Russian financier at the centre of a plot to finance a terrorist attack that will bring about the collapse of the American economy.  Chris Pine is set to become the fourth actor to play the role on screen following in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck and Harrison Ford.

Chris Pine is currently wrapping up his performance as Captain Kirk in Star Trek 2. So expecting him to get down to business saving our world just as soon as he gets done fighting Benedict Cumberbatch in space.
