Lorenzo di Bonaventura has reportedly said that George Clooney is too old to play Jack Ryan.
The 48-year-old recently expressed an interest in portraying the CIA analyst when the next instalment in the franchise ahead..
According to the GI Joe: The Rise Of Cobra producer, who is also working with screenwriter Hossein Amini on the origin story for Tom Clancy’s character, said that Clooney is not right for the role: “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.”
He added: “We submitted a script to Paramount recently. It was well-received and it’s in the process.”
