Chad Stahelski directed the John Wick movies. He’s been tapped to direct the Rainbow Six movie for Paramount Pictures. This movie will be a direct sequel to the 2021 action-thriller movie, Without Remorse.
These movies are all based on books by Tom Clancy. Michael B Jordan will also produce the movie with Elizabeth Raposo via the duo’s Outlier Society banner.
Akiva Goldsman and Greg Lessans are also going to be producing the movie via Weed Road Pictures. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are producing the film via their banner, The Saw Mill.
Michael B Jordan is going to star in a Rainbow Six movie
In this upcoming Rainbow Six movie, Jordan will once again be playing Navy SEAL-turned-CIA operative John Clark, one of Clancy’s more popular characters, who appeared in the late author’s Jack Ryan spy books. Clark also headlined two novels, Without Remorse and Rainbow Six, with the latter spawning a line of video games.
Without Remorse served as a Clark origin story and was made during the pandemic. Given everything that was going on with the pandemic, Paramount ended up offloading the movie to Amazon, so it ended up debuting on Prime Video on April 30th, 2021.
Paramount Pictures intends to release Rainbow Six in cinemas, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s sources. There are no details on what the movie’s plot will be.
As for Stahelski, he has several projects in development, including a remake of Highlander that will star Henry Cavill. Last year he produced the vampire action flick Day Shift starring Jamie Foxx, which Netflix released in August.
