According to Variety.com, Amazon Studios is in final negotiations to buy worldwide rights to Without Remorse from Paramount Pictures.
The Tom Clancy thriller stars Michael B. Jordan as U.S. Navy SEAL John Clark. If it closes, the pact makes sense for Amazon, which backs “Jack Ryan,” the espionage series starring John Krasinski as the titular CIA analyst. It would also give the streaming service a major action-adventure with one of the hottest stars in the business. It may be a sign of the more commercial and broadly appealing direction that Amazon hopes to go in the future after a period of making more arthouse fare. The film is expected to premiere on Amazon Prime.
Without Remorse is directed by Stefano Sollima, who previously collaborated with Amazon on the drug trafficking series ZeroZeroZero. It co-stars Jamie Bell, Jodie Turner-Smith and Luke Mitchell. Taylor Sheridan of Hell or High Water and Sicario fame wrote the script, with Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) penning the most recent draft.
Michael B. Jordan has recently hosted “A Night at the Drive-In” by Amazon Studios and Outlier Society and featured Black Panther and Creed at the Paramount Drive-In.
Local food truck vendors were on-site providing food compliments of Amazon Studios which include Wings-n-Waffles, Antidote Eats, Real Trap Kitchen, All Flavor Not Grease, and Kogi BBQ.
Michael B Jordan was on-site and video chatted live with Tessa Thompson to intro the movies.
Without Remorse’s producers include Jordan, Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger and André Nemec.
