    Acclaimed “Sicario” and “Hell or High Water” scribe Taylor Sheridan has been brought onboard to pen a re-write of the film adaptation of the Tom Clancy novel “Without Remorse” at Paramount Pictures.

    The 1971-set book has John Kelly (played by Michael B. Jordan), a former Navy SEAL returned from Vietnam, taking charge in two operations – an official military rescue of POWs, and a personal vendetta against the drug runners who raped, tortured and killed the first woman he became involved with since his wife’s death.

    The book is a prequel to events in Clancy’s other books as Kelly would later become John Clark, the dark supporting character that would feature in several Jack Ryan novels and films. Willem Dafoe played him in “Clear and Present Danger” while Liev Schrieber took on the role in “The Sum of All Fears”.

    The studio has made several attempts to adapt the property but the bleak and violent storyline has proven difficult to adapt. Everyone from “The SHIELD” creator Shawn Ryan to “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” writer/director Chris McQuarrie have taken a shot at it.

    The project will mark a reunion of sorts of Sheridan and director Stefano Sollima who both worked on “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” last year. The aim for ‘Remorse’ is to begin production sometime this year. Jordan, Akiva Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are producing.

    Sheridan just recently wrapped production on the second season of his TV series “Yellowstone”.

    Sheridan has had some serious success for only his first few writing jobs with Sicario, Wind River and Hell or high water

    I never knew about Hell Or High Water until the thread was recently bumped. That movie looks awesome too

    Hands down my favorite Tom Clancy novel. Such a great book. I can’t wait to be disappointed by the movie.

    I was really confused for a moment because I only knew Taylor Sheridan as the deputy from SOA. Didn't realize he was such a prolific writer as well.

    Great book that I was wondering if they could ever make it into anything. Netflix series would be better but I like this.

    Can’t wait for the poorly masked racist outrage at letting Michael B play the role of the Irish American source character

    But besides that this has serious potential, very excited

    Greer is played by a black woman. Even more outrage. I wonder if her being black was an individual decision or because they piggy backed off Wendell Pierce playing James on the Jack Ryan show

    I thought it was terrible. I’m not sure the point of naming it Without Remorse. There was nothing tying it to the book other than the names and the very broad plot line of 1) man’s significant other is murdered 2) man kills a few people in revenge 3) man fakes his death to join CIA.

    I agree it was an awful adaptation of the book. If that's what you were looking for, it was a really bad attempt.

    For an exciting action movie, was entertained

    Enjoyed it but no real plot. Guess they are setting it up to be a franchise. Better step it up on the next one.

    Jim Greer has been black in every movie. The woman in Without Remorse is Greer’s niece.

    Have never read the book. Still thought it was very, very average for a Tom Clancy adaptation.

    I know it's his niece. In the books it's his son or nephew (cant remember)

    Also forgot about James Earl Jones. It's been a while since I saw those movies

    The plot didn't really make any sense at all but it was fun and had a few moments of Sicario tension I loved.

    Woof. Should of changed the name and left the book out of it. Saving prostitutes and hunting drug dealers should of been an easy make. At no point in the movie did Kelly show the hardness his character in the book was built upon.

    That’s fair. Also shows a little bit of range in That Awkward Moment, as silly as that movie is. Seems like between the Creed movies, Black Panther and now Without Remorse, if his character isn’t outright raging, he’s just snarling in your face with his pearly whites.

    Your responses are exactly what I expected after watching first 30 minutes and seeing RT score.

    Let’s not act like Jack Ryan is a good show either, they’ve butchered most Tom Clancy stuff since clear and present danger/patriot games

    It sucks that these are such easy stories to be good movies/shows and they go stupid

    Thought it was fun. Nice throwback to 90s style plotless action films where the whole thing is built around moving from set piece to set piece.

    I wasn’t expecting a masterpiece and it delivered what I was hoping it could be.

    I’m happy that this type of movie is allowed to still exist in some way, shape, or form as the medium continues its decay into nothingness.

    Did Brett Gellman have the easiest payday ever in this movie? He was in what, like 3 scenes, had a handful of lines, but was portrayed as the chief terrorist in the whole thing.

    Ive only seen him in comedies so I was a little surprised to see him.

    I thought the movie was ok. Agree as someone mentioned would have been better as a 5-6 episode series.

    It was bad, with a few good set pieces. Very generic with the “twist”
