- JACK RYAN
Paramount is now on the search for a new female lead to star opposite Chris Pine in the Kenneth Branagh-directed Jack Ryan reboot.
Deadline reports that the current frontrunner is Keira Knightley, with Lost's Evangeline Lilly and Like Crazy's Felicity Jones still on the short list. The role was initially offered to Total Recall co-stars Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Beil, but both women passed on the project.
It would seem that the role could culminate into a three picture deal for whoever takes it on, but that is just a little rumour that is floating around.
The Jack Ryan reboot stars Pine in the title role alongside Branagh, who will also play the film's villain.
