America's Cold War fears are rekindled after the President of Russia dies and is succeeded by a man with a cryptic past. But, East-West tensions erupt when the CIA suspects that renegade Russian scientists are developing more nuclear weapons. Mobilized into action by CIA Director William Cabot (Morgan Freeman), Jack Ryan (Affleck) follows a dangerous trail to a shocking conclusion: terrorists plan to provoke a war between the U.S. and Russia by detonating a nuclear bomb at a championship football game.
THE SUM OF ALL FEARS is the fourth Tom Clancy novel featuring his famous protagonist, CIA analyst Jack Ryan, to be made into a film following "The Hunt For Red October," "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger."
Phil Alden Robinson ("Field of Dreams") directed from a screenplay by Akiva Goldsman and Paul Attanasio and Dan Pyne. The executive producers are Tom Clancy and Stratton Leopold ("The General's Daughter"). Mace Neufeld is the producer for Paramount Pictures.
