Paramount and Skydance Pictures' Untitled Jack Ryan pic lands Kenneth Branagh.
Paramount's found its helmer in Thor director Kenneth Branagh, after Jack Bender ankled the film, reports Variety.
The untitled pic starring Star Trek's Chris Pine, and based on Tom Clancy-created character, is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
David Koepp is doing a polish on the Untitled Jack Ryan Project following several rewrites, and this one may start production this September, after Pine's Trek duties.
Jack Ryan segues from the Marine Corps to a position as a Russian billionaire's financial consultant, but he's framed in a terrorist plot and forced to go on the run.
Branagh is attached to helm Fox Searchlight Pictures' The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and now one wonders where that will fall.
