Director Philip Joyce, the man behind two Jack Ryan movies, has told Moviehole.net that Paramount are working on a way to bring Tom Clancy's most famous CIA operative back to the big screen.

The character of Ryan has been at the centre of four action thrillers over the last sixteen years, with Harrison Ford taking the lead in Patriot Games and Clear And Present Danger, whilst Alec Baldwin and Ben Affleck gained their CIA badges in The Hunt For Red October and The Sum Of All Fears respectively.

However, it seems Clancy will not be involved in any future Ryan projects - a legal loophole means the studio can use the character without the approval of the author. Still, with film adaptations of Rainbow Six, Splinter Cell and Without Remorse all confirmed, a Clancy-less resurrection of Ryan won't give the author too many sleepless nights.
