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.
