Without Remorse hits Amazon Prime Video on April 30, 2021, in over 240 countries and territories and will see Jordan starring as former Navy SEAL John Clarke. The character was created by Clancy when he was writing the Jack Ryan books and Jordan is hoping that Without Remorse launches a feature franchise for the John Clarke character. You can read the film’s official synopsis below
“An elite Navy SEAL uncovers an international conspiracy while seeking justice for the murder of his pregnant wife in Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, the explosive origin story of action hero John Clark – one of the most popular characters in author Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan universe. When a squad of Russian soldiers kills his family in retaliation for his role in a top-secret op, Sr. Chief John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan) pursues the assassins at all costs. Joining forces with a fellow SEAL (Jodie Turner-Smith) and a shadowy CIA agent (Jamie Bell), Kelly’s mission unwittingly exposes a covert plot that threatens to engulf the U.S. and Russia in an all-out war. Torn between personal honor and loyalty to his country, Kelly must fight his enemies without remorse if he hopes to avert disaster and reveal the powerful figures behind the conspiracy.”
Directed by Stefano Sollima and based on the 1993 Tom Clancy novel of the same name, the film also stars Jamie Bell, Jodie Turner-Smith, Luke Mitchell, Jack Kesy, Brett Gelman, Colman Domingo, and Guy Pearce. Without Remorse was originally set to be released theatrically by Paramount Pictures but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon Studios acquired the rights to release the film on its streaming platform.
There could definitely be some franchise and even crossover potential for this project, especially after landing at Amazon. The Jack Ryan series starring John Krasinski is also housed on Amazon Prime Video so I wouldn’t be surprised if some kind of shared universe with the show or with the film were in the cards.
