The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Chad Stahelski has signed on to direct the film adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six at Paramount, which will be led by Michael B. Jordan and serve as a follow-up to the 2021 thriller Without Remorse.
Whilst plot details for the film are being kept under wraps, we know that Michael B. Jordan will be reprising the role of CIA operations officer and former Navy SEAL, John Clark, who in the novels heads an international counterterrorist organisation known as Rainbow, with his codename being Rainbow Six.
Without Remorse served as an introduction of John Clark to audiences, with the film being made during the pandemic and due to the second lockdown, Paramount offloaded the film to Amazon, which in turn premiered on Prime Video at the end of April. It’s unclear from the report whether Paramount will be releasing the film at cinemas or on Paramount+, as it says that final decision will be made later in the filmmaking process.
Chad Stahelski, whose directing credits include the John Wick franchise, will be executive producing under his 87Eleven Entertainment banner alongside Jason Spitz and Alex Young. Michael B. Jordan will be producing with Elizabeth Raposo under their banner Outlier Society. Akiva Goldsman and Greg Lessans of Weed Reed Pictures will also be producing, as well as Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec of The Saw Mill.
