PAR AND CLANCY BACK IN BUSINESS

Buzz revealed months ago that Tom Clancy, who’d sworn off doing business with Paramount Pictures, had decided to give the studio another chance by making a deal for his novel “Cardinal of the Kremlin” to be developed as the next Jack Ryan film. Now the Cold War between the writer and the studio is officially over, since Clancy’s William Morris agent, Robert Gottlieb, is now negotiating with the studio for screen rights to “The Sum of All Fears,” as well as his latest Ryan techno-thriller “Debt of Honor.”

Clancy was unreachable at press time, but Gottlieb said a writer and director is expected to be hired on “Cardinal” shortly – Mace Neufeld and Bob Rehme will produce – and that Clancy was “very pleased at how his relationship with Sherry Lansing has evolved. So he’s offered them ‘Sum of All Fears’ in what would be a co-venture between Paramount and Clancy.”

The producers’ next task will be landing Harrison Ford, who starred in “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger”; he wants to see a script before deciding on a Ryan rerun.
