Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

Synopsis: This new version of the saga of CIA analyst Jack Ryan begins as Jack attends the London School of Economics. 9/11 happens. He subsequently enlists in the Marines, sustaining severe injuries when the chopper deploying him to Afghanistan is shot down. While in intense rehab, he grabs the attention of Harper, a man who works for the CIA and who would like Jack to finish his studies, get a job on Wall Street, and seek out terrorist plots through their financial transactions. Ten years pass. Jack finds anomalies in the accounts of a Russian named Cherevin and thinks he should go to Russia to check out what's going on. He's told not to tell anyone who he is, including his girlfriend Cathy, which makes her doubt him when she catches him in some lies. In Russia, Cherevin assigns someone to assist Jack, but when the two are alone, the man tries to kill Jack instead, so Jack kills him. Obviously, Cherevin is hiding something. Jack goes to meet him and says he'll bring his fiancée along, but when

(PEOPLE SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY)

GIRL:
Did you see what's happening?

MAN:
Come on, come on, let's go!

Hey, what's going on?

In there. It's on the news.

MALE REPORTER:
(ON TV)

Then, 18 minutes later,

a second one went

into the other twin tower.

FEMALE REPORTER:
(ON TV)

Can you paint us

a picture of the situation in New York...

An everyday morning situation,

presumably pretty busy in the streets,

people going about their business.

MALE REPORTER:
Well,

it's a beautiful day here in New York.

Everyone is out in the street,

everyone's on their rooftops,

everyone's on their mobile phones.

I don't think people can quite

believe what's happened.

FEMALE REPORTER:

Given that this is the financial district,

is it your understanding that people...

You're American, aren't you?

Sorry, mate.

...may actually be inside

the World Trade Center?

MALE REPORTER:
I mean,

without a shadow of a doubt

there will be people in there.

They get to work very early.

FEMALE REPORTER:
And what about

the emergency services?

(FEMALE REPORTER

CONTINUES INDISTINCTLY)

JACK:
I, John Patrick Ryan,

do solemnly swear that

I will support and defend

the Constitution of the United States

against all enemies,

foreign and domestic,

that I will bear true faith

and allegiance to the same

and that I will obey the orders

of the President of the United States

and the orders of the officers

appointed over me

according to regulations and the

Uniform Code of Military Justice,

so help me, God.

JACK:
Come on, then!

PRIVATE 1:
I got one!

- Let's hear it!

- Richmond Webb.

You serious?

My man was a seven-time Pro Bowler.

I'm just saying Brown's better.

Man, how come every cat from Baltimore

always got to bring up Orlando Brown?

Because Brown's the most underrated

offensive tackle in the business.

(CELL PHONE BEEPING)

- Have you ever seen him play?

- What? Aw, man.

Yes, this is Lieutenant Ryan.

Yes, sir, I did. I was wondering

if you had a chance to forward

my report on the Saabir Khan Bridge

to anyone in intel.

Yes, sir, they are the same findings

I already reported.

I just can't help noticing a correlation

between traffic patterns there

and the region's other...

Well, if they do respond,

I would be happy to explain it to

whoever's in charge of regional...

Sir?

Still no love from the C.O.?

I don't get it. I'm just trying to help.

PILOT:
Hey, guys. Buckle up in the back.

We're running into a little turbulence.

You all right there, Private?

- Sir, yes, sir!

- Good man!

PRIVATE 1:
Man, I still don't get

why you requested this detail.

Big brain like yours, man, why aren't you

behind some desk somewhere?

You requested this?

I just figured if I was gonna serve,

I should serve.

Man, that's some patriotic shit

right there, you see that?

You're all right, Lieutenant.

Even if your team is wack.

Oh, stop talking trash

on my Ravens, homeboy.

I'm a Bengals fan.

- BOTH:
The Bengals?

- (BOTH LAUGH)

Rookie, get that harness on

and stop trying to be down.

JACK:
Man,

you got a lot to learn, Davies.

BOTH:
Left in, right twist, click.

Thank you, sir!

JACK:
You want some help?

(EXPLOSION)

(GRUNTING)

(ALL SCREAMING)

CORPSMAN 1:
Move, move, move!

Chopper crash.

Spinal cord should be okay,

but he's got two shattered vertebrae

and no feeling in his legs.

Lieutenant Ryan!

Lieutenant Ryan!

Did anyone else make it out alive?

Yeah, two. Ryan dragged them both out.

With a broken back?

Okay, we're gonna have a look at you

and it's gonna hurt, okay?

X- rays are on the board.

DOCTOR:
Okay, turn him!
