It looks like Amazon’s bringing Jack Ryan to the small screen, which we reported on some time ago, and it has some impressive talent behind it.
Deadline have confirmed that Passengers director, Morten Tyldum, will helm the first episode.
Tyldum also directed Headhunters and The Imitation Game for those underwhelmed by the recent Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
The series will star The (American) Office star John Krasinski in the lead role and will have Lost’s Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland as its creators and Michael Bay as an exec producer.
Krasinski, speaking to Collider, described the show as ever changing and set to reflect current world issues: “Every year they’re gonna be different. They’re sort of more ripped-from-the-headlines type stuff, so the first year the villain or I don’t know what you want to call it is it’s taking on ISIS for sure.”
He also confirmed the series’ first season will have 10 episodes.
What do you think? Has this team got what it takes to be Ryan? Voice off in all the usual places, gang…
