Here we go! Michael B. Jordan shared a first look at the upcoming big screen adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, in which the Black Panther and Creed star plays CIA operative John Clark in a tale riddled with blood and revenge. Check out the footage below!
As mentioned above, Jordan is set to play the role of Clancy hero John Clark, a recurring character in Clancy’s novels. Clark is an an ex-Navy Seal who became a CIA operations officer. At first, he was a secondary character who helped Jack Ryan’s missions but the novel Without Remorse made him the lead and told his thrilling, yet tragic, origin tale.
The film will be directed by Stefano Sollima (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) from a screenplay adapted by Taylor Sheridan. It will be produced by Jordan, Akiva Goldsman (Transformers), Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. Paramount Pictures is developing two film adaptations of Tom Clancy’s thriller novels Without Remorse and Rainbox Six with Jordan also set to star in the planned sequel.
John Clark has appeared in a number of Tom Clancy’s novels dating back to 1988’s The Cardinal and the Kremlin, as the darker side of the Jack Ryan character who works primarily in the field and typically operates by his own personal brand of ethics. The character was played by Willem Dafoe in Clear and Present Danger, starring Harrison Ford, and by Liev Schreiber in The Sum of All Fears starring Ben Affleck.
