Chris Pine seems to have a bad habit of riding a motorcycle without his helmet. But when you get play as Jack Ryan, I don’t think it really matters. Paramount Pictures has just released the first photo of Pine playing as the titular character in the upcoming film titled Jack Ryan. Check out the full image of Pine below.
Now there is not a lot to take away from this photo alone. The photo is what it is, which is Pine cruising down the streets of New York City on a Ducati (which is a very cool and very fast motorcycle by the way) without his helmet. We don’t know where Jack Ryan is heading, but he seems to be determined to make it to his destination on time, even risking breaking the law to do so.
Pine is joined by Keira Knightley, who will be playing as his wife, and Kenneth Branagh, who will be playing the villain as well as directing the film. Kevin Costner also stars as Jack Ryan’s CIA liaison.
Jack Ryan centers on the titular character in Russia trying to stop his boss and an evil organization from devaluing the American economy. It is reported to be a prequel to the Tom Clancy novels that were adapted into movies. The script has been through the writer’s ringer and has seen revisions being done by Steven Zaillian, Anthony Peckham, Adam Cozad, and David Koepp.
Paramount will release Jack Ryan on December 25th, Christmas Day, 2013. So does this photo of Chris Pine riding a motorcycle grab your attention?
