Akiva Goldsman is one of the most active Hollywood producers of recent years, who managed to win an Oscar , assemble the group of authors "Transformers" and at the same time shoot an indistinct fantasy melodrama "Love Through Time ". Deadline informs that Goldsman will revive the project that fans of Tom Clancy have been waiting for a long time ago - the film Rainbow Six will get another chance to realize .|
The film will be based on the novel of the same name Clancy , published in 1998. As a result, the work spawned a large-scale media franchise that still exists today and includes more than a dozen video games in the tactical shooter genre. The first news about the upcoming film adaptation appeared back in 2004, and once John Woo (Faceless) claimed the director's chair.
Rainbow Six talks about the international counterterrorism unit led by John Clark . His squad is facing a difficult task - to eliminate dangerous criminals who threaten world security.
Goldsman is developing the project, with Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemez in charge of the script (Mission Impossible: Phantom Protocol). The central character, John Clark , has already appeared on the big screens in films about Jack Ryan : in "Direct and Clear Threat" he was played by Willem Dafoe, and in "The Price of Fear" - Liv Schreiber. Goldsman also decided on the first candidate for the role of Clark - the producer suggested it to Ryan Reynolds.
The source says that Paramount has been looking for a way to turn John Clark into the star of a new action franchise for a long time, and perhaps now is the right moment, as another famous hero Clancy , Jack Ryan , moved to small screens.
