The latest version of the seemingly invincible secret agent will be portrayed by John Krasinski (The Office) in Amazon’s upcoming series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. The first teaser trailer for the series debuted in October 2017 during New York Comic Con, offering a glimpse of how the latest iteration of the character stacks up against his predecessors.
This time around, Jack Ryan finds himself thrust into a global investigation of a rising terrorist group that might be planning an attack on the U.S.
Krasinski’s Jack Ryan will be the fifth on-screen iteration of the character and the first on television. The role was previously filled by Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger), Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fears), and Chris Pine (Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) The character has also appeared in various licensed video games. Clancy passed away in 2013 at the age of 66.
The series represents the culmination of several years’ effort to bring Clancy’s legendary lead character to the small screen. Michael Bay is on board as a lead producer alongside Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form; Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Graham Roland are also executive producers, in addition to having written the pilot based on a story they developed together. Clancy film veteran Mace Neufeld and Lindsey Springer are also attached as producers, along with several people from Skydance.
On Tuesday, September 19, we received the first teaser trailer, which revealed … well, nothing, really.
The 30-second teaser — fittingly titled $10 Bill — opened on a young girl penning a red smiley face on a $10 bill before using the bill to pay a street vendor. The trailer follows the bill as it changes hands via drug deal and as it makes its way through a (presumably) illegal operation, giving us a glimpse inside a cocaine packing plant and some sort of cave where men are counting stacks upon stacks of cash.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will be available in 2018, exclusively through Amazon Prime Video.
