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".

Akiva Goldsman will be heading the project as the film's main producer along with Jordan, Josh Appelbaum, and Andre Nemec.

Paramount is in talks with writers for the Without Remorse adaptation and has hired writer-producer Akiva Goldsman to lead the project.

On the big screen, Clark has been portrayed by Willem Dafoe in Clear and Present Danger (1994) and Liev Schreiber in The Sum of All Fears (2002).

Clancy's classic Jack Ryan was recently played by actor John Krasinski in Amazon's hit series of the same name.

Jordan, 31, who most recently appeared in Marvel's Black Panther, is currently awaiting the release of Creed II.
