Steve Zaillian has been tapped to rewrite the upcoming Jack Ryan reboot (which seems to change titles every week) entitled MOSCOW (JACK RYAN). However, not to be hidden among this new addition, also comes the casting news of Jack Ryan’s (Chris Pine) wife, who has been filled by actress Rebecca Hall. Zaillian is set to go to work on the project right away, as Paramount would love to get this project underway ASAP, and Chris Pine’s schedule for that other Paramount blockbuster franchise “Star Trek” is going to start being an issue very soon. Zaillian brings an experienced mindset to the Jack Ryan world, having already written “Clear and Present Danger” and having done an uncredited “fixer” job on “Patriot Games”. Hall, was last seen in Ben Affleck’s crime/thriller “The Town”.
Zaillian and Hall are both repped by WME.
