Michael B. Jordan to Star in Paramount’s Tom Clancy Film Series

Michael B. Jordan to Play Tom Clancy Character John Clark in New Film Series (EXCLUSIVE)

While Jack Ryan is now preparing for its second season on Amazon, Paramount has optioned two more Tom Clancy adaptations with Michael B. Jordan attached to star. The character first showed up in Clancy's novels (17 of them in total) and has already appeared in multiple Jack Ryan movies already, portrayed first by Willem Dafoe in Clear and Present Danger and later by Liev Schreiber in The Sum of All Fears. Either way, it seems Paramount Pictures has chose to push forward with more properties derived from Tom Clancy's novels, though with the Jack Ryan character firmly established at Amazon, they've made a decision to go with John Clark, the hero of Rainbow Six, instead.

We'll need to doubly emphasize the "Tom Clancy's" part of the title here, because this film is indeed based on the 1998 novel.

The news comes after Amazon and Paramount TV recently released a rebooted "Jack Ryan" series on its streaming platform, starring John Krasinski, to positive reviews. The franchise-building efforts will be headed by Akiva Goldsman, current maestro of the Transformers film universe, joined by producers in Josh Appelbaum, Corin Nemec and the star himself, Jordan. Beginning with The Cardinal of the Kremlin in 1998, the former Navy Seal turned Central Intelligence Agency operative would often assist Jack "I'm just an analyst" Ryan on his many covert missions. Clark was largely used as a supporting character to Jack Ryan, until he was given his own adventure in "Without Remorse".

Without Remorse fills in the backstory of how Clark came to join the Central Intelligence Agency. Clark then became the focus of "Rainbow Six", the book that spawned a popular video game franchise.

Paramount neared a deal to create a Without Remorse film back in 2012 and began exploring a Rainbow Six movie in 2017, but nothing came of either until now. Jordan is considered one of Hollywood's biggest stars now, and is coming off the massive hit "Black Panther", which has earned him Oscar buzz for his role as antagonist Killmonger.
