Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, or simply Without Remorse, is an upcoming American action thriller film directed by Stefano Sollima and written by Taylor Sheridan and Will Staples. It is based on the 1993 novel of the same name by Tom Clancy and a spin-off of the Jack Ryan film series. The film tells the origin story of John Kelly (aka John Clark), a U.S. Navy SEAL, who uncovers an international conspiracy while seeking justice for the murder of his pregnant wife by Russian soldiers. When Kelly joins forces with fellow SEAL Karen Greer and shadowy CIA agent Robert Ritter, the mission unwittingly exposes a covert plot that threatens to engulf the U.S. and Russia in an all-out war.
Expanding the Jack Ryan universe created by author Tom Clancy seems to be a priority to Paramount and Without Remorse will allow them to give John Clark a string of his own films. When Michael B. Jordan was originally cast in the John Clark role he was attached for their Rainbow Six movie as well.
There is also a possibility we might eventually see Jordan’s Clark and John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan eventually cross paths.
Without Remorse will debut April 30th on Amazon’s Prime Video.
