Apparently no one behind the upcoming Jack Ryan reboot MOSCOW has heard the phrase, "too many hands in the kitchen."

Featuring drafts penned by Adam Cozad, Hossein Amini, Anthony Peckham and the last we heard Steve Zaillian, the long anticipated return of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan character has been in more hands than most projects, and is just about ready to have yet another set get all up in its business.

Deadline is reporting that David Koepp (JURASSIC PARK, SPIDER-MAN) is set to rewrite the film, which will be using Cozad’s original screenplay, DUBAI, as its source material, with Chris Pine still attached to star.  This is an interesting change of pace for Koepp, who has been hard at work on his feature film directorial debut, the Joseph Gordon-Levitt starring PREMIUM RUSH. 

However, this in turn boasts poorly for MOSCOW.  Koepp will not be working on his rewrites until post-PREMIUM RUSH, delaying the film even longer.  Paramount appears more than willing to just sit on their laurels however, as they have no intentions on pushing this one through the pipeline.  Personally, that’s the great thing about the project.  No one is forcing this film through production, meaning that this may not be the worst thing around.  Fingers are definitely crossed.
