"I can’t go to Yemen, I’m an analyst. I don’t interrogate people, I write reports."
I recently rewatched the film adaptation's of Tom Clancy's Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger with Harrison Ford as Jack Ryan. I love those films, but this new Jack Ryan series coming from Amazon Studios actually looks like it could be pretty awesome. I think John Krasinski is going to make an excellent version of Ryan and it looks like he's going to own the role.
Amazon released a great full trailer for the series today and it gives us a solid look at what we can expect from the story that it's going to tell. The series looks like it's going to be pretty intense!
Jack Ryan, an up-and-coming CIA analyst, is thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. He soon uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale.
The Amazon series was already renewed for a second season ahead of its premiere, which is set for August 31st.
