More news on Harrison Ford returning to Jack Ryan
We recently brought you the news that Harrison Ford could revisit the character of Jack Ryan. Well now there are some more details on who is trying to make it happen, and who is not so keen.
It seems there are some people involved in the series who really do want him involved. They seem to be having trouble convincing those above, that Ford is the right choice though.
Mace Neufeld, who produces the series, is the one gunning for Harrison to return to the role but Paramount aren't interested - they still think a younger face is the way to go. Mace pesters them every few months about giving the role back to Ford - Lorenzo is also open to the idea - but the studio don't want it.
So there you have it, it's apparently the studio who are non plussed about Ford coming back. And if they're not up for it, it's highly unlikely ever to happen. I suppose the success of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull could provide them with a bit of encouragement.
But for me if you are going to reinvent a series then reinvent it already. Get a young new face who could star in a new series of films, maybe even do something different with the them. What do you think, trusty Harrison Ford, or some young blood?
