Jack Ryan Star Says New TV Show Will Be a "10-Part Movie"

    It was reported last week that Amazon has greenlit a 10-part Jack Ryan show, staring John Krasinski as Tom Clancy's heroic CIA analyst. Now Krasinski has revealed some details about what audiences can expect from the upcoming series.
    [​IMG]The former star of The Office spoke to Collider about what would set this show apart from previous screen incarnations. "The line between film and TV has blurred so much over the years," he said. "I think Jack Ryan is a product of that blurring so much that I think that they're not even really considering it a TV show, they're calling it a movie that's being told in 10 parts.
    "[Showrunner] Carlton Cuse's whole plan is we're gonna shoot it on a movie budget, [and] we're gonna have the same stunts as movies. It's gonna feel like a movie but you're gonna watch it every week.
    "He just felt that two hours wasn't enough time to tell a Jack Ryan story, because Tom Clancy's books are so detailed and rich. If [Ryan] has a superpower it's his intelligence, so there's a lot of problem solving and things that take time. That's the beauty of the spy genre."
    The actor also explained that the show's storylines would be influenced by real-world events. "Every year they're gonna be different," he said. "They're sort of more ripped-from-the-headlines type stuff. The first year the villain--or I don't know what you want to call it--is taking on ISIS for sure."
    Krasinski will be the fifth actor to play Ryan. He first appeared in the 1990 thriller The Hunt for the Red October, portrayed by Alec Baldwin. Harrison Ford starred in two Clancy adaptations in the early 1990s, with Ben Affleck and Chris Pine both playing the character since then.
    While Krasinski is best known for playing hapless Jim Halpert in nine seasons of The Office, he did take on a more action-packed role in last year's Michael Bay-directed war movie 13 Hours.
    There is currently no title or premiere date for Amazon's Jack Ryan show.
