Branagh is gearing up for the role of Viktor Stazov, who creates a plot to destroy the US economy with the help of the Russian government, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Chris Pine has already joined the project to play the Ryan character, who is an ex-Marine turned analyst.

The as-yet-untitled Jack Ryan project is expected to go into production later this year.

Branagh is also set to direct fellow Queen's Birthday Honors recipient Kate Winslet in the upcoming romance The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
