George Clooney Too Old to Play New Jack Ryan, Says Producer

According to producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, there is a new Tom Clancy screenplay in development, but George Clooney won't be playing Jack Ryan, no matter how much he wants to. Says di Bonaventura: "We submitted a script to Paramount recently. It was well received and it's in the process... It's for a young Jack Ryan. I love George, but it's not written for a man of his age. It's written for a guy in his early 30s." Zac Efron, call your agent! [Movies Blog/MTV]
