While his name may not be instantly recognizable just yet, filmmaker Jack Bender has been linked to quite a number of high-profile projects since the end of the beloved series “Lost,” a show he served as both a producer and frequent director on. Since then, he’s taken the executive producer position on frequent collaborator J.J. Abram’s “Alcatraz,” and he piqued our interest when we heard he’d be directing a Syfy time-travel drama pilot called "Rewind" with David Cronenberg featuring in a guest role, but he’s still probably best known for jumping ship on Paramount’s major Jack Ryan reboot with Chris Pine set to take over the popular Tom Clancy-created character (Kenneth Branagh has since taken the reins).
