Washington [US], April 20 (ANI): Hollywood star Michael B Jordan recently spoke about his upcoming Amazon Original film “ Without Remorse, ” which is a spin-off of Jack Ryan’s iconic film series.
Starring and co-producing the upcoming Amazon Original film, the multifaceted actor has revealed some interesting tidbits about his character and the action drama’s plot, giving phenomenal insights.
The story revolves around an elite Navy SEAL who uncovers an international conspiracy while seeking justice for the murder of his pregnant wife in Tom Clancy’s ‘Without Remorse’, the explosive origin story of action hero John. Clark, one of author Tom’s most popular characters from Clancy’s Jack Ryan Universe.
When a squad of Russian soldiers kills his family in retaliation for their role in a top-secret operation, Senior Leader John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan) pursues the assassins at all costs. Joining forces with fellow SEAL (Jodie Turner-Smith) and an obscure CIA agent (Jamie Bell), Kelly’s mission unwittingly reveals a secret plot that threatens to engulf the United States and Russia in all-out war. Torn between personal honor and loyalty to his country, Kelly must fight his enemies without remorse if he hopes to avert disaster and reveal the powerful figures behind the plot.
Speaking of Tom Clancy’s brilliant writing skills and comparing two of his most famous characters, Jack Ryan and John Kelly, Michael B. Jordan said: “While it is true that Kelly is a far more deadly warrior than the Analytically Ryan, there’s more to the character than just muscle, Jordan observes. Jack Ryan is an intelligence officer, while John Kelly is a soldier who gets things done by any means necessary. “
The actor added, “But when it comes to achieving his goals, Kelly is like a chess master who methodically maps every step of the way. Chess is something that I personally wanted to put into the movie, because that when John is on a mission, he always has specific goals in mind, and to achieve them he makes decisions and makes strategic decisions. “
The chess analogy goes even further, Jordan said, “We play with the idea that war is a game of pawns and kings throughout the film. Often times in wartime soldiers are called pawns because they are the ones who go out and do the dirty work for the sake of the larger agenda. They are the boots on the ground, and they fight for their lives as the protected kings and queens sit down and give orders. Then you have the rest of the pieces that look like generals on the battlefield. “
“ Without Remorse ” was a novel written by Tom Clancy that has now been turned into an action thriller starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Colman Domingo, among others. Directed by Stefano Sollima, the screenplay was written by Taylor Sheridan and Will Staples.
Starring Jordan, the film was produced by Akiva Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec. It is set to release worldwide on April 30, 2021, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. (ANI)
