Amazon Studios has given the greenlight to a four-hour miniseries titled Cortes, which tells the story of Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes.
The miniseries has a ton of talent behind it. It’s based on a screenplay penned by the late great Dalton Trumbo, who wrote movies like Roman Holiday and Spartacus and won two Academy Awards for his work. It’s produced by three-time Oscar winner Steven Spielberg through his Amblin Television. It’s created for TV and written by Steven Zaillian, who won an Oscar for writing the screenplay for Spielberg’s Schindler’s List. And Oscar winner Javier Bardem is set to star in the title role and produce.
Chris Pine seems to have a bad habit of riding a motorcycle without his helmet. But when you get play as Jack Ryan, I don’t think it really matters. Paramount Pictures has just released the first photo of Pine playing as the titular character in the upcoming film titled Jack Ryan. Check out the full image of Pine below.
Now there is not a lot to take away from this photo alone. The photo is what it is, which is Pine cruising down the streets of New York City on a Ducati (which is a very cool and very fast motorcycle by the way) without his helmet. We don’t know where Jack Ryan is heading, but he seems to be determined to make it to his destination on time, even risking breaking the law to do so.
