Jordan King begins filming on the new Jack Ryan feature film Maryland. The action-thriller from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions, which is being directed by Kenneth Branagh, stars Star Trek’s Chris Pine as the hero of Tom Clancy’s best-selling book series.

The story follows how a young man becomes a CIA agent. Kevin Costner will play William Harper, a red-white-and-blue American patriot and legendary CIA field agent who recruits Pine’s Jack Ryan and becomes his mentor. Keira Knightley will play the female lead and Kenneth Branagh also play’s the villain in this film adaptation.

Four films have featured Clancy’s Jack Ryan, and Pine will be the fourth actor to portray the character, following in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin (The Hunt for Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger), and Ben Affleck (The Sum of All Fears). This is Jack Ryan’s first return to the big screen in more than a decade.


US born Jordan King graduated from LAMDA in 2012 and has since filmed Jack Ryan for Paramount Pictures and Philomena for BBC Films.
