Looks like Michael B. Jordan is joining the Tom Clancy movieverse

According to The Verge, he'll be playing John Clark in adaptions of the novels Without Remorse and Rainbow Six.
Paramount is developing adaptations of the Clancy books Without Remorse and Rainbow Six, both of which focus on the character of John Clark. A former Navy Seal turned CIA operative, Clark was originally introduced in the 1987 novel The Cardinal of the Kremlin. In 1993, Clancy’s Without Remorse delved into the character’s backstory, while Rainbow Six followed his adventures forming a counter-terrorist group known as “Rainbow.” While numerous Clancy novels like The Hunt For Red October and Patriot Games have made their way to movie theaters before, this would be the first film adaptation for both Clark novels — although Rainbow Six has served as the inspiration for Ubisoft’s long-running game series of the same name.
Worth noting that Clark was previous played by Willem Defoe in the third Jack Ryan movie, A Clear and Present Danger. This is interesting news and it's great to see Michael B. Jordan's career continue to grow. He's a phenomenal actor as seen in Black Panther.
