We are quickly approaching the release of the intelligence thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. As such, we are going to start seeing the final bits of promotional material come out before the film hits theaters. Today, the people at Paramount Pictures have released a new character poster for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit featuring Kevin Costner.
In the film, Costner plays the role of William Harper. From what we have seen in the trailers, Harper is one of the men responsible for bringing Jack Ryan, played by Star Trek’s Chris Pine, into the Central Intelligence Agency.
The caption on the poster reads “Mentor, Operative, Spy.”
However, in the world of intelligence, things are not always what they seem, and someone on the inside has betrayed Ryan. The hardest part is going to be finding out whom.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a little different from the rest of the Jack Ryan films. Shadow Recruit is not based off of any one particular Tom Clancy novel. Instead, it is an original work based off of the character Jack Ryan, which was created by Clancy. It is meant to serve as a tribute to the late author who passed late last year due to an undisclosed illness.
Here is a closer look at the newest character poster for the film Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
The film also stars Kenneth Branagh, who is also directing, Keira Knightley as Jack’s wife Cathy, Colm Feore, Gemma Chan, and many more.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is scheduled to be released on January 17, 2014.
