A few weeks back it was announced that Paramount Pictures had delayed the Tom Clancy novel adaptation Without Remorse which stars Michael B. Jordan as ex-Navy SEAL John Clark who goes off the rservation to avenge the death of his girlfriend

Paramount Pictures had delayed the film until February of next year but now a report comes from The Hollywood Reporter that the film might bypass the theaters all together and head to streaming as Amazon is in final negotiations to acquire the film to play on Prime. It’s important to remeber that the deal isn’t done yet but if it is then this will be the third film released by Paramount while the other two films include The Lovebirds and Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of the Chicago 7.

Based on the Tom Clancy novel of the same name, Without Remorse stars Michael B. Jordan as John Clark who is an ex-Navy SEAL who appeared in numerous Clancy novels as he became a CIA operations officer who helped recurring hero Jack Ryan. The book Without Remorse turned Clark into a headlining hero of his own and in the movie, he faces tragedy and seeks revenge against the vile Baltimore drug dealer who murdered his girlfriend.

Stefano Sollima (Sicario: Day of the Soldado) helmed the film which also stars Jamie Bell (Jumper), Luke Mitchell (Blindspot), Cam Gigandet (Ice), Jodie Turner-Smith (Queen & Slim), Jacob Scipio (Bad Boys for Life), Brett Gelman (Stranger Things), Jack Kesy (Claws), and Colman Domingo (Fear the Walking Dead).

This move makes since as Amazon is already home to Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan which stars John Krasinski as the CIA operative and the series is a hit for the service as two seasons have already run and a third is planned. Amazon could shape up to be the home for all things Tom Clancy in the future and there could even be potential for crossovers but that’s just wishful thinking on my part.

Movie studios are looking for any and all means to get their product out as no on m akes money when the films are sitting on the shelves. Most studios are still holding steadfast in their resolve for theaters to open up and most major releases have been pushed back to 2021.

Keep itlocked and loaded right here to see how this all plays out. If Amzon does acquire the film then maybe we will be able to see it sooner then next year.
