Chris Pine In 'Jack Ryan': Photo Offers A First Look At Chris Pine As Tom Clancy's Character

Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affeck have already taken a stab at playing Jack Ryan, and now it's Chris Pine's turn. A first look photo of Pine on the Manhattan set of the latest chapter in the Tom Clancy character's on-screen life has debuted courtesy of Paramount.

The photo shows Pine racing through the city on a motorcycle. "Jack Ryan" is a prequel and expected in theaters Christmas Day 2013. The film is directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars alongside Pine, Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley.

Knightley reportedly beat out Felicity Jones and Evangeline Lilly for the reboot, a win which could prove particularly lucrative, as reports indicate that the cast may be up for two Jack Ryan sequels.
