Keira Knightley in Talks for Jack Ryan

As previously rumored, Knightley is closing in on the role of Mrs. Ryan, wife to the titular Jack (Chris Pine), in the upcoming Kenneth Branagh–directed Tom Clancy prequel. (This is the one about the evil Russian guy who tries to destroy the American economy by devaluing the dollar.) So either Keira has changed her mind about tentpole movies, or it's not a "blockbuster" if it involves international fiscal policy? Discuss.
