John Wick Director Chad Stahelski To Direct Rainbow Six Movie For Paramount Pictures: Report

The film Rainbow Six from Paramount Pictures would have found its director in the person of Chad Stahelski. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the John Wick The filmmaker will helm the live-action adaptation of the eponymous 1998 spy thriller, which sees Michael B. Jordan reprise his role as CIA agent-turned-Navy SEAL John Clark. The next Rainbow Six movie will essentially serve as a sequel to Amazon Prime Video’s Remorseless, similar to the timeline of Tom Clancy’s books. Currently, there are no plot details or release window for the Rainbow Six movie.

According to THR, Stahelski will also produce the film adaptation of Rainbow Six, under his 87Eleven Entertainment banner, alongside Alex Young and Jason Spitz. The latter is also attached to the Ghost of Tsushima movie, which is in development at PlayStation Productions. The book and movie Without Remorse functioned as an origin story for Clark (Jordan), in which he uncovers an international conspiracy while seeking justice for the murder of his pregnant wife.

Stuntman-turned-filmmaker Stahelski burst onto the scene with Keanu Reeves-directed John Wick in 2014, quickly establishing himself as one of the best contemporary action directors, via the series’ later sequels. He’s currently attached as director to the upcoming John Wick: Chapter 4, which is slated for release March 24, and the long-gestating Highlander reboot, starring Henry Cavill.

As to whether the series will tie into the movie to form an interconnected universe, only time will tell.
