Jordan Cast as John Clark in Tom Clancy's 'Rainbox Six' Film Series

21 September 2018

Jordan will play the book's protagonist, John Clark, in two separate movies.

As reported by Variety, Jordan will take the lead role in Rainbow Six and Without Remorse, two big screen adaptations based on famous Clancy novels.

The Tom Clancy character John Clark, who's like Jack Ryan except not a boring desk jockey, is finally getting his own franchise.

The news of more Tom Clancy adaptations comes on the heels of a successful TV outing based on the popular author's works. Ahead of the show's premiere, Amazon had already ordered a second installment.

Clark, a.k.a. John Terrence Kelly, is an ex-Navy Seal-turned-operations officer for the Central Intelligence Agency and would go on to appear in 17 novels starting with 1988's "The Cardinal of the Kremlin". The film's coming courtesy of Paramount Pictures, and will be produced by Akiva Goldsman alongside Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, and Jordan himself.

He said police could not yet say how many shooters there were, or whether it was a drive-by shooting or not. The website said ambulances were seen driving away from the scene with a police escort at about 9:15 pm.

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. Jordan is a talented, charismatic star, and Clark is a good, solid character that hasn't been done to death like Jack Ryan. That book revealed Clark's backstory and history with the Central Intelligence Agency.

Previously, John Clark has been played by Willem Dafoe (Clear and Present Danger) and Liev Schreiber (The Sum of All Fears).

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.

Clark was also the focus of "Rainbow Six", with followed his new task force and its mission to protect the world from its greatest terrorist threats. If Paramount's new flicks decide to acknowledge Siege's popularity, we could see Michael B. Jordan shooting baddies through walls or breaching the floor below to save a hostage. That makes this a ideal time to give John Clark the spotlight on the big screen for the first time.
