A New Jack Ryan Adventure?

Apparently Paramount is trying to re-invigorate their Jack Ryan franchise, and through some bizarre legal loopholes, it seems they can do it without the involvement of Ryan's creator, Tom Clancy.

According to Movieweb: "Although he's no longer involved in the series, Australian filmmaker Phillip Noyce, who directed Jack Ryan films Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, tells Moviehole that he's heard that the wheels are in motion to put C.I.A agent Ryan back on the big screen. But no, he won't be involved and by the sounds of it, neither will the man who invented the popular literary character.

Apparently there's a legal loophole that enables the studio to make a film based on the character - without getting Clancy's input.

According to Noyce, Paramount is looking to re-launch the Jack Ryan film series that began with 1990's The Hunt for Red October ... only this time, the film would not be based on one of Tom Clancy's books."

Lazy bastards!

Why would they make a movie based on a Tom Clancy character, but not based on a Tom Clancy story? Tom Clancy has so many good books that are just begging to be made into movies, why can't they just make one of those? It's guaranteed success.

I would love to see a Rainbow Six movie, but the Teeth of the Tiger would also make a great post-9/11, Clancy movie.

Sweet mercy, please don't involve that smarmy bastard, Ben Affleck. I'm all in favor of another Jack Ryan movie, but why not woo Tom Clancy to pen it? Who better knows Ryan?

Maybe they could do something with Liev Schreiber's character from "Sum." He's a worthy and underrated actor. (In fact, he should've been Robert Langdon instead of Hanks.)
