The next Tom Clancy film is another step closer to rolling cameras.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures has tapped Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan and Marlon Smith to pen the upcoming adaptation of Rainbow Six starring Michael B. Jordan. John Wick director Chad Stahelski will helm the project.
In addition to staring, Jordan is producing with Elizabeth Raposo via the duo’s Outlier Society banner. Also producing are Akiva Goldsman and Greg Lessans via Weed Road Pictures as well as Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec through The Saw Mill.
The feature project is a follow-up to Jordan’s 2021 action vehicle, Without Remorse, with the actor once again playing Navy SEAL-turned-CIA operative John Clark. One of Clancy’s more popular characters, Clark appeared in the late author’s Jack Ryan spy books and also headlined two novels, Without Remorse and Rainbow Six, with the latter spawning a line of video games.
No release date has been announced.
