It has been quite some time since we have seen Michael B. Jordan in action but we won’t have to wait much longer. The trailer of Without Remorse, an adaptation of Tom Clancy’s 1993 novel of the same name, has been recently released starring Michael B. Jordan as John Clark a.k.a. John Kelly. The character is one of Clancy’s badass heroes who is out to seek revenge after a squad of Russian soldiers kills his family because of his contribution as a NAVY seal officer in a top-secret operation. But in the process to deliver justice where it is due, Kelly discovers that an international conspiracy is brewing that can trigger a major war between the U.S. and Russia.
The Michael B. Jordan starrer Without Remorse is directed by filmmaker Stefano Sollima (known for his tv series “Gomorrah”}. Initially, the film was supposed to be a Paramount Pictures production but during the pandemic, it was sold to Amazon Prime.
