Michael B. Jordan’s new film marks new collaboration
| The Beat By Yanina Carter |
I really love me some Michael B. Jordan. I’ve watched him grow as a actor and had the privilege of meeting his three time director, Ryan Coogler, who spoke highly of Jordan, which was during the release of “Fruitvale Station.” Then he said the two had some great things they were going to be doing. In case you didn’t know, Coogler directed Jordan’s last three movies, Creed and Black Panthers.
Basically anything Jordan is involved in, reeks of success. Well, Jordan does it again. Amazon Studios and Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society are expanding on the production banner’s existing deal to now feature an exclusive overall relationship in television and a first-look film deal. Under the film pact, Outlier Society will produce and acquire elevated films showcasing diverse, bold filmmakers and talent for the studio’s ever-growing original movies slate.
This deal comes in the lead up to the release of Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, starring and produced by Michael B. Jordan, launching globally on April 30, 2021 on Prime Video in over 240 countries and territories. This creative relationship with Jordan and Outlier Society will see cross-collaborations within Amazon’s vast businesses, from fashion, Audible to music and more – including the debut of Jordan in Amazon’s Alexa big game ad that appeared during the Superbowl.
The spot, which played into Jordan’s title as People’s Sexiest Man Alive, where he was the body of Alexa, premiered during the 4th quarter of the game. “We’re excited to deepen our relationship with Outlier Society! Michael, Liz and the team will be key partners in our efforts to showcase compelling, ambitious and addictive content that can reach our global audience,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios.
“We can’t wait for everyone to see Without Remorse, our next chapter in the Tom Clancy universe – it’s an action-packed thrill ride fans will love.” “Bringing Outlier Society’s slate of film, television and multi-media content all under the same roof is an exciting next chapter for us,” said Michael B. Jordan, Outlier Society CEO. “Amazon’s global and expansive reach offers us the ability to entertain and engage our audience in innovative ways, while maintaining our commitment to supporting a wide range of stories and storytellers. I’m thrilled to be kicking off the partnership with Without Remorse this Spring.”
In this film, Jordan plays 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. Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse is directed by Stefano Sollima, from Paramount Pictures, Skydance and New Republic Pictures. The film is produced by Weed Road Pictures, The Saw Mill and Outlier Society. The impressive slate of upcoming projects includes the Denzel Washington-directed feature Journal for Jordan with Jordan starring and producing; Creed III, the third installment of the Rocky franchise for MGM which will see Jordan reprise his role as Adonis Creed, and DC property Static Shock.
