Michael B Jordan to Star in New Tom Clancy Film Series


While Jack Ryan is currently preparing for its second season on Amazon, Paramount has optioned two more Tom Clancy adaptations with Michael B. Jordan attached to star.

Paramount is developing two separate films featuring Clancy's CIA operative John Clark portrayed by Jordan who will also co-produce both projects along with Akiva Goldsman, Josh Applebaum, and Corin Nemec. The planned adaptations include Clancy's 1993 novel Without Remorse, showing Clark's origins in the CIA while combating street criminals on the streets of Baltimore, and 1998's Rainbox Six which has Clark lead a team of special forces soldiers in counterterrorism missions around the world. The latter novel was enormously popular upon its initial publication and has inspired a wave of video game spinoffs.

Clark had previously appeared as a supporting character in two previous Clancy film adaptations, 1994's Clear and Present Danger and 2002's The Sum of All Fears. The 1994 film had the character portrayed by Willem Dafoe while the 2002 reboot had Live Schreiber play the role.

Without Remorse had previously been optioned by Paramount in 2006 with Brandon Routh attached to the star in the film before the project was ultimately dropped.
