And then there’s Jack Ryan, the buzzy Amazon series starring John Krasinksi as Clancy’s most famous hero.

But what about Clancy’s second most famous hero? A few months ago, we learned that the great Michael B. Jordan was going to star in film adaptations of the novels Without Remorse and Rainbow Six, playing the hardened soldier John Clark. Now, we know who is going to direct that first movie.

Creed II hit theaters last week, and even though it came in #2 on the box office charts behind a record-breaking haul for Ralph Breaks the Internet, the movie carved its own legacy by landing the biggest Thanksgiving opening weekend ever for a live-action movie.
