Starring as the lead and co-producing the upcoming Amazon Original movie, the multi-faceted actor reveals interesting tidbits about his character and the plot of the action-drama
Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming film, Without Remorse, is making all the right noises by keeping the anticipation and excitement among fans at its peak. Without Remorse is a novel written by Tom Clancy which has now been made into an action thriller film starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, Colman Domingo amongst others. This film is a spin-off of the iconic Jack Ryan film series. The wait to watch Michael B. Jordan as John Kelly will soon be over and all the actors are geared up to entertain us and do justice to the novel. With just a few days left, the star actor speaks about the different characteristics of his character, and gave us some phenomenal insights.
Talking about Tom Clancy’s brilliant writing skills and comparing two of his most-celebrated characters Jack Ryan and John Kelly, Michael B. Jordan said, “While it’s true that Kelly is a far-deadlier warrior than the analytic Ryan, there’s more to the character than mere muscle, observes Jordan. Jack Ryan is an intel operative, while John Kelly is a soldier who gets things done by any means necessary,” says the actor. “But when it comes to achieving his goals, Kelly is like a master chess player who methodically maps out every step along the way. Chess is something I personally wanted to incorporate into the film, because when John is on a mission, he always has specific objectives in mind, and to achieve them he makes strategic moves and decisions.”
The chess analogy extends even further, says Jordan. “We play with the idea that war is a game of pawns and kings throughout the film. Oftentimes in war, soldiers are referred to as pawns, because they’re the ones that go out and do the dirty work on behalf of the larger agenda. They’re the boots on the ground, and they’re out there fighting for their lives while the protected kings and queens sit back and give the orders. Then you have the rest of the pieces that are like the generals on the battlefield.”
Directed by Stefano Sollima, Without Remorse, an American action thriller is all set to release globally on April 30, 2021 exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
