Paramount Announces Two Michael B. Jordan Tom Clancy Movies

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

The rebooted Jack Ryan series, developed by Paramount TV and Amazon, stars John Krasinski as the titular character, and recently debuted to critical acclaim.

Readers familiar with Clancy's novels will recognize Clark's name, not only from his solo adventures, which began with Without Remorse in 1993, but from the many Jack Ryan books he appeared in. Jordan is a talented, charismatic star, and Clark is a good, solid character that hasn't been done to death like Jack Ryan.

Paramount Pictures has tapped Michael B. Jordan to play Clancy hero John Clark in a new film series, Variety has learned. Ahead of the show's premiere, Amazon had already ordered a second installment.

John Clark has always been a staple of Clancy's works, having appeared in a total of 17 novels since his debut in 1988's "The Cardinal of the Kremlin".

He later argued that the prime minister now needed to abandon her plan and instead pursue "a Canada plus free trade deal". Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel added: "It is an agreement, so we both have to find a compromise".

Paramount is developing two separate films featuring Clancy's Central Intelligence Agency operative John Clark portrayed by Jordan who will also co-produce both projects along with Akiva Goldsman, Josh Applebaum, and Corin Nemec.

As for the upcoming Rainbox Six movies, Akiva Goldsman will be spearheading the new project as the film's main producer.

Studio Paramount is now reportedly taking meetings with potential directors and writers for the Without Remorse film, so it sounds like it's still very early days. The studio is developing two movies for the character, with an origin story planned for an adaptation of Without Remorse followed up by a sequel based on Rainbow Six. In films, Clark has been played by Willem Dafoe in Paramount's "Clear and Present Danger" adaptation, starring Harrison Ford as Ryan, as well as by Liev Schreiber in "The Sum of All Fears", which starred Ben Affleck as Ryan.

If you remove Goldsman from the equation, you have an exciting prospect for a franchise.
