Chad Stahelski to Direct Michael B. Jordan in Paramount’s ‘Rainbow Six’ (Exclusive)



Paramount’s adaptation of Tom Clancy novel Rainbow Six has found its director.

Chad Stahelski, the director of the John Wick movies, has been tapped to direct the feature project that is serving as a Michael B. Jordan action vehicle and follow up to the actor and studio’s 2021 action thriller, Without Remorse.

Jordan is starring in Rainbow and is producing with Elizabeth Raposo via the duo’s Outlier Society banner. Also producing are Akiva Goldsman and Greg Lessans via Weed Road Pictures as well as Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec through The Saw Mill.

Jordan will once again be playing Navy SEAL-turned CIA operative John Clark, one of Clancy’s more popular characters who appeared in the late author’s Jack Ryan spy books. The character also headlined two novels, Without Remorse and Rainbow Sixwith the latter spawning a line of video games.

Remorse served as a Clark origin story of sorts and was made during the pandemic. With theatrical releasing in flux, Paramount offloaded the movie to Amazon where it debuted on April 30, 2021. Paramount intends to release Rainbow theatrically, sources say.

No plot details have been revealed.

Stahelski will executive produce alongside Jason Spitz and Alex Young.

Stuntman-turned-filmmaker Stahelski made a bone-crunching directing debut with John Wick in 2014, and then helmed all the subsequent installments. He has several projects in development, including a remake of Highlander that will star Henry Cavill. Last year he produced vampire action flick Day Shift that starred Jamie Foxx and that Netflix released in August.

Stahelski is repped by WME and Johnson Shapiro.
