JOHN WICK Helmer Chad Stahelski to Direct RAINBOW SIX Movie Starring Michael B. Jordan

Michael B Jordan To Star In Rainbow Six Movie

Although not a particularly huge hit, the 2021 thriller "Without Remorse" was a Tom Clancy adaptation that was intended as the first chapter in a franchise starring Michael B. Jordan. With the pandemic wreaking havoc, the film got dumped on Amazon Prime, and it looked like the franchise was pretty much dead. Paramount, however, has big plans for it going forward.

Recent reports indicate that Chad Stahelski, the helmer of the "John Wick" movies, is on board to direct a sequel to "Without Remorse" that will be based on Clancy's "Rainbow Six" novel, which features Navy SEAL-turned-CIA operative John Clark, who was played by Jordan in the first film. "Without Remorse" ended with Clark planning to establish a multinational anti-terrorist team codenamed: Rainbow.

"Rainbow Six" also spawned a successful video game franchise. Its most recent installments include the highly popular online tactical shooter "Rainbow Six: Siege" and the less successful follow-up "Extraction". The character John Clark, one of Clancy's most iconic characters, was previously played by Willem Dafoe in "Clear and Present Danger", and Liev Schreiber in "The Sum of All Fears".

Stahelski is also attached to direct the upcoming "Highlander" remake which stars Henry Cavill in the lead role, and the PlayStation video game adaptation "Ghost of Tsushima".
