Spidey Trumps Jack Ryan for Raimi

Visionary director Sam Raimi recently talked with MTV News and has said that he doesn't think it will be possible for him to direct the new revision of Jack Ryan. The reason being that he is now attached to Spider-Man for a long while. Personally, it is better that Raimi sticks with Spidey for now. Allow him to finish his story of Peter Parker. Then he can move on to other things, like finishing Evil Dead!

Raimi commented on the idea of Jack Ryan and reality that he is attached to Spider-Man. “I love Tom Clancy, and I hope they’d keep me in mind,” Raimi said. “But because I’m committed to ‘Spider-Man' and making that picture, I think it’s going to knock me out of the running for the Jack Ryan picture.” I love Jack Ryan (every version of him), but I dont think Raimi is the guy to bring us the stories. Sam Raimi also needs to redeem himself from that which was, Spider-Man 3!

Thoughts on Raimi not directing a Jack Ryan re-boot? Who do you think should direct more of the CIA operative's tales?
