Jack Strong is a 2014 Polish political thriller film directed by Władysław Pasikowski, starring Marcin Dorociński, Maja Ostaszewska, Dagmara Dominczyk and Patrick Wilson. The film is based on the true story of Ryszard Kukliński, a Polish Army colonel who spied for the American Central Intelligence Agency during the height of the Cold War. The title of the film, Jack Strong, was Kukliński's secret agent pseudonym.


Preparations took five years. Filmmakers used help from David Forden - ops officer of CIA who was the supervisor of Ryszard Kukliński.

Photography started in January 2013. The film was shot in General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces, Warsaw, Gdańsk, Legnica, Washington D.C. and Moscow.

The film was co-financed by the Polish Film Institute.
