Los Angeles:

Black Panther star Michael B Jordan is all set to star in a new film series based on Tom Clancy's character John Clark. According to Variety, Paramount Pictures is planning a film series on Clark, who is Clancy's second most famous character after Jack Ryan. The studio is developing two movies for the character, with an origin story planned for an adaptation of "Without Remorse" followed up by a sequel based on Rainbow Six.

Clark aka John Terrence Kelly, is an ex-Navy Seal-turned-operations officer for the CIA. He has been described by his creator as "Ryan's dark side" and "more inclined to take physical action than Jack is".
