Chris Pine Won't Be Jack Ryan Anytime Soon! Moscow Production Facing Financial Cutbacks!

Times are tough - even for Hollywood!

As we've reported, many new film projects have been terminated and/or delayed due to financial constraints, including Universal's projects with Tom Cruise and Ron Howard, Disney's Lone Ranger, the proposed Paradise Lost adaptation - and now, it appears that Paramount's reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise - with Chris Pine assuming the role of the C.I.A. hero - has also bitten the dust…for now!

Although the studio apparently loved the latest draft of the screenplay of the Jack Bender-directed project, currently titled Moscow, they are apparently holding off until the actor wraps production on Star Trek 2, and asking for some new edits to the writing that would help reduce the budget significantly!

Yeesh! We guess nothing is safe these days!

And this has been on the table for a few years now!

Here's hoping it can finally get off the ground - and work out, despite the money constraints!

    No Lone Ranger?!? Looks like Disney blew their wad on that new Cruise Tub and all of the $$$ they had to fork over to Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon to be the Fairy Godparents! Can you say STOOPID?!? UGH!!!!! =(
