Paramount plans to build a franchise around Jordan’s portrayal of Clark. In addition to “Without Remorse”, the actor will also lead “Rainbow Six” with production scheduled for 2019.

The character has appeared in 17 of Clancy’s novels, starting with 1988’s “The Cardinal of the Kremlin”. Though mainly seen as a secondary character who helps CIA analyst Jack Ryan with the physical elements of missions, Clark finally stepped into the spotlight with the novel “Without Remorse”, which tells his backstory of how he came to work for the CIA.
