Amazon in talks to acquire Michael B. Jordan’s Without Remorse

After announcing a few months ago it had delayed the release of the Michael B. Jordan-starring thriller by a month, it now appears Paramount’s Without Remorse may forgo a theatrical release all together as Amazon is entering final negotiations to acquire the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Though not finalized, should the deal go through it would mark the third major film that Paramount has sold off to a streaming platform in the middle of the ongoing pandemic after the romantic comedy The Lovebirds and Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 were both acquired by Netflix.

Jordan is set to play the role of Clancy hero John Clark, a recurring character in Clancy’s novels. Clark is 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. In the film, Clark seeks revenge after his girlfriend is killed by a Baltimore drug lord.

The film will be directed by Stefano Sollima (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) from a screenplay adapted by Taylor Sheridan. The cast also includes Jamie Bell (Jumper), Luke Mitchell (Blindspot), Cam Gigandet (Ice), Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim), Jacob Scipio (Bad Boys for Life), Brett Gelman (Stranger Things), Jack Kesy (Claws), and Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead).

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.
