In the next Clancy movie, Jack Ryan meets...Jack Ryan?
Red Rabbit: In a nice sense of irony, it looks like Alec Baldwin is returning to the Jack Ryan franchise which he helped kick off - though not as you might expect. The Z Review reports that Baldwin is in talks to co-star in this adaptation of Tom Clancy's "Red Rabbit" alongside Ben Affleck - both actors having played Jack Ryan in previous films ("The Hunt for Red October & "The Sum of All Fears" respectively). As Affleck will be playing Ryan again this time around, it means Baldwin's role will likely be that of Chief of Station Ed Foley. This may cause some confusion admittedly amongst filmgoers although the pair have worked together before in 2001's "Pearl Harbor". Thanks to 'Roger'.
Now if there's some way to work in Harrison Ford (maybe as one of Jack's bosses at the CIA), then you'd have the trifecta.
Coincidentally, 22 years ago today, the Pope was shot by that Turkish assassin, so sayeth The History Channel. But, we all know who was really behind the hit, now, don't we.
