    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

    Holy fuck.

    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
