As one of Tom Clancy’s creations enjoys its successful resurrection in mainstream pop culture (thanks to John Krasinski and Amazon Studios), another is about to get his very first solo film adaptation.
On Thursday morning, a quick teaser was released on YouTube for the film Without Remorse, an adaptation of the 1993 Clancy novel. The story acts as an origin story for the character John Clark, who is a recurring character in the Jack Ryan universe. The trailer features Michael B. Jordan (Creed, Black Panther) as the title character in is own solo film. Click the link above to check out the teaser.
The following is a synopsis for the novel provided by GoodReads.com:
John Kelly [later known as John Clark], former Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran, is still getting over the accidental death of his wife six months before, when he befriends a young woman with a decidedly checkered past. When that past reaches out for her in a particularly horrifying fashion, he vows revenge and, assembling all of his old skills, sets out to track down the men responsible, before it can happen again.
The film is directed by Stefano Sollima (Sicario: Day Of The Soldado) with a script adaptation by Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Hell Or High Water, Wind River, Sicario: Day Of The Soldado). The cast includes Jamie Bell (Fantastic Four, Jumper), Cam Gigandet (Easy A, Twilight, Never Back Down) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim). With the film being produced by Midnight Radio, Paramount Pictures, and Skydance Media, it is doubtful it will have any connection to Amazon’s Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan series, which has yet to introduce the Clark character.
Without Remorse is scheduled to be released September 18, 2020.
