Amazon is circling Paramount's Tom Clancy adaptation Without Remorse, starring Michael B. Jordan. 

The feature stars Jordan as beloved Clancy character John Clark, a former Navy SEAL and director of the elite counterterrorism unit Rainbow Six.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado director Stefano Sollima helmed from a script by Taylor Sheridan and Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman. Jordan, Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger and André Nemec produced the feature, which was co-financed by Skydance Media.

Paramount had dated the film for Sept. 18, 2020, in February, before the theatrical shutdown in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic. The deal is not yet done, but if it is completed, Without Remorse will be the latest Paramount feature that has been placed at a streaming service. The studio sold both comedy The Lovebirds and Aaron Sorkin's The Trial of the Chicago 7 to Netflix.

For its part, Amazon picked up family action comedy My Spy from STX after the movie's domestic theatrical release was derailed by the nationwide theatrical shutdown.
