    Without Remorse trailer, being released April 30th

    Yes, that Without Remorse. Normally, Iíd assume itís gonna be woke/SJW/etc, but Taylor Sheridan whom wrote Sicario, Wind River, and Yellowstone also wrote this screenplay, so I have high hopes for this.

    One of my favorite Clancy novels. I just hope they include the hyperbaric chamber scene.

    It appears that the creative team behind this movie is going to recreate basically nothing from the book:

    Storyline
    An elite Navy SEAL uncovers an international conspiracy while seeking justice for the murder of his pregnant wife in Tom Clancy's Without Remorse, the explosive origin story of action hero John Clark - one of the most popular characters in author Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan universe. When a squad of Russian soldiers kills his family in retaliation for his role in a top-secret op, Sr. Chief John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan) pursues the assassins at all costs. Joining forces with a fellow SEAL (Jodie Turner-Smith) and a shadowy CIA agent (Jamie Bell), Kelly's mission unwittingly exposes a covert plot that threatens to engulf the U.S. and Russia in an all-out war. Torn between personal honor and loyalty to his country, Kelly must fight his enemies without remorse if he hopes to avert disaster and reveal the powerful figures behind the conspiracy.
    It does not appear to be a direct attack upon the ideas of the book, in the way the Starship Troopers movie was, but more like a re-skinning of an existing movie plot with popular (?) Clancy characters.

    I would argue that the book is unfilmable. I doubt that a faithful recreation would even be able to get a NC-17 rating.

    If anyone can do this, it's Taylor Sheridan.

    Iíve read that book more times through than Iíve read any other Tom Clancy books combined, and Iíve read most of the Jack Ryan series at least once as well as one or two of his non-fictions. It is one of my favorites of all time.

    The actor may be great, but from that description, it isnít going to be a movie based on the book. Itís just going to share the title and some character names.

    Excited!

    Then not so much..........

    I've always wanted a *GOOD* movie based on one of my top 3 Clancy novels, but I'm not liking the sound of this one....

    Hopefully LL's faith in the screenwriter pays off.

    Same. It's an excellent book, and one of my favorites from Clancy, but based on the description so far, I feel like if I watch the movie, my major reaction will be "uh, so, what book was this based on again?"

    That's of course independent of whether it turns out to be a good movie, but it always bugs me when they depart that far and don't just make it its own thing. Like why not just make it be a "normal" spy movie with original characters at that point? The Jason Bourne series of films had that problem in a big way too...

    This. If theyíre not going to make Without Remorse, but just slap the name on a kinda-similar script, then Iím out.
