The Jack Ryan series, by Tom Clancy, was a New York Times bestseller in the 80s and 90s. Jack Ryan’s sharp mind and problem-solving skills, made him one of the most loved heroes.
In the Amazon Prime Original series, the producers of the show have recreated the political thriller while retaining the original characteristics of the franchise that made it so popular. The massive use of gunfire and weaponry in the show makes it look extremely dangerous.
In an attempt to make the series look authentic, a well-trained crew with knowledge of modern arms, heavy artillery, machine guns, pistols and rifles lent expertise to produce the show. Real guns loaded with blanks were also used on the sets. Only, in the scenes where the cast had to perform stunts, real guns were replaced by rubber weaponry, especially when the gun stock was used to hit on the face.
Written and created by Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland in association with Amazon Prime Video, Jack Ryan is set to premiere on Prime Video on 31st August 2018. The show stars John Krasinski.
