Without Remorse served as the origin story for the character who appeared in dozens of novels and Clancy-inspired video games, and the 2021 film updates that novel but keeps the plot the same: Jordan is an elite Navy SEAL hellbent on revenge after a failed assassination attempt against him results in the death of his wife.
In addition to Jordan, the film also stars Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce, Lauren London, and Jodie Turner-Smith. Sicario: Day of the Soldado and ZeroZeroZero director Stefano Sollima helms the blockbuster, with Taylor Sheridan (Sicario, Wind River, Yellowstone) and Will Staples co-writing the screenplay.
After its theatrical release was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Without Remorse premieres April 30th on the streaming service.
Like Clancy’s Jack Ryan — portrayed on the big and small screen by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and now John Krasinski — the John Clark character has previously been played by Willem Dafoe (Clear and Present Danger) and Liev Schreiber (The Sum of All Fears).
