Jamie Bell is set to reunite with Michael B. Jordan for new movie Without Remorse.
The 33-year-old British actor is in final negotiations to join Paramount’s adaptation of the Tom Clancy novel, according to Variety. If his deal is finalised, it will mark a reunion between Bell and Jordan, who last appeared together in the critically-panned Fantastic Four reboot in 2015, alongside Miles Teller and Kate Mara.
Jordan was previously cast as operations officer John Clark, also known as John Terrence Kelly, a former Navy SEAL who goes to work for the CIA. Bell would portray Robert Ritter, the deputy director of operations at the CIA who helped recruit Clark upon his return to the U.S. after his haunting mission in Vietnam.
Director Stefano Sollima is at the helm of Without Remorse, while Sicario screenwriter Taylor Sheridan is penning the script, with Jordan, Akiva Goldsman, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec serving as producers.
And in an attempt to build a film franchise around Jordan’s role as Clark, the 32-year-old will also lead the movie adaptation of Clancy’s novel Rainbow Six, with production scheduled to begin towards the end of this year.
The character has appeared in 17 of Clancy’s novels, including Clear and Present Danger.
Bell recently starred as neo-Nazi Bryon Widner in Skin and in the Elton John biopic Rocketman as the pop icon’s songwriting partner Bernie Taupin.
Jordan is currently starring in Just Mercy, alongside Oscar winners Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson, which tells the true story of Walter McMillian, who successfully appealed his murder conviction in the 1990s with the help of lawyer Bryan Stevenson.

Angelina Jolie is set to star in Taylor Sheridan’s upcoming thriller Those Who Wish Me Dead.
The Oscar-winning actress has taken a hiatus from major Hollywood projects in recent years, and was last seen onscreen in 2015’s By the Sea with her former husband Brad Pitt, as well as directing 2017 biographical drama First They Killed My Father.
But according to editors at Deadline, Jolie has now lined up her next feature, an adaptation of Michael Koryta’s 2014 novel of the same name.
Sheridan will be directing and penning the script, which will be set against the backdrop of the endless miles of desolate Montana mountains. It has not yet been confirmed which character Jolie will play, though shooting is expecting to begin in May (19) after Sheridan completes work on the second season of his TV series Yellowstone. No other casting details have been announced.
Jolie has several other films in the pipeline, as she recently wrapped filming on Disney’s Maleficent 2, in which she reprised her role as Maleficent from the 2014 movie. She is also in the post-production phases of animated flick The One and Only Ivan, where she voices the character of Stella.
In addition, the 43-year-old will play Rose in Brenda Chapman’s Come Away, which has been described as a prequel to the stories of Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland.
Meanwhile, Sheridan has carved a name for himself in the gritty thriller genre, having written the screenplays for 2015’s Sicario and its follow-up movie Sicario 2: Soldado. He also wrote the story for 2016’s Hell or High Water and 2017 crime-drama Wind River, on which he made his directorial debut. It is unclear whether or not he is still making an action-thriller titled Fast, which was set to feature Chris Pratt as an ex-special forces commander.
Maleficent 2 is set for release in May 2020.
