Taylor Sheridan (‘Sicario,’ ‘Wind River,’ ‘Yellowstone’) has come on board to rewrite Paramount’s adaptation of the Tom Clancy novel ‘Without Remorse,’ with Michael B. Jordan starring as operations officer John Clark.

The film marks a reunion for Sheridan and his ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’ helmer Stefano Sollima, who will be directing.

Clark, aka John Terrence Kelly, is an ex-Navy-SEAL-turned-operations-officer for the CIA who has appeared in 17 novels starting with 1988’s ‘The Cardinal of the Kremlin.’ Though mainly seen as a secondary character who helps CIA analyst Jack Ryan with the physical elements of missions. Clark stepped into the spotlight with ‘Without Remorse,’ which tells his backstory on how he came to work for the CIA.

Sheridan’s involvement shows how high a priority this project is for the studio, which is trying to start a franchise with Jordan based on the Clark character. Akiva Goldsman will also be spearheading the endeavor as the film’s main producer, with Jordan, Josh Appelbaum, and Andre Nemec also producing.
