John Clark, a Navy SEAL, goes on a path to avenge his wife's murder only to find himself inside of a larger conspiracy.



Savoy Pictures first bought the film rights to Without Remorse soon after the novel was released for $2.5 million.[1] At one point, Keanu Reeves was offered the role as Clark for $7 million but declined.[2] Variety magazine reported that Laurence Fishburne and Gary Sinise were later attached to star in the adaptation; however, production was shut down due to script problems and financial woes with the production company.[3] The film went under development hell for years until Christopher McQuarrie signed on with Paramount Pictures to direct the adaptation in 2012.[4] Tom Hardy was approached by Paramount to play Clark, and Kevin Costner was slated to reprise his role as mentor William Harper from another Clancy-based film, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014), but this version was most likely scrapped.[5]

In 2017, it was announced that Akiva Goldsman signed on with the same studio to produce another film adaptation starring Clark, Rainbow Six.[6] On September 20, 2018, Michael B. Jordan was announced to be playing the character in a two-part film series, which will be composed of Without Remorse and Rainbow Six and with Goldsman, Jordan, Josh Appelbaum, and Andre Nemec producing.[7] In December 2018, Stefano Sollima was hired to direct the film.[8] On January 9, 2019, Variety announced that Taylor Sheridan will rewrite the screenplay.[9]

In September 2019, Jamie Bell and Jodie Turner-Smith were cast, with Luke Mitchell, Jacob Scipio, Cam Gigandet, Jack Kesy, Todd Lasance and Brett Gelman joining in October.[10][11][12][13][14]

Filming began in Berlin by October 2019.[15] Some filming is scheduled to begin on December 19 near Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C.[16]


Without Remorse is scheduled to be released on September 18, 2020 by Paramount Pictures.[17]
