Michael B. Jordan’s Outlier Society has picked up a first look film deal and an overall television deal with Amazon Studios.
Featured in the film deal, Outlier will produce and acquire elevated films showcasing diverse, bold filmmakers and talent for the studio’s ever-growing original movies slate, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.
In motion already under the new partnership is the upcoming film ‘Without Remorse’, an action thriller, which stars Jordan as Navy SEAL John Clark, aka John Kelly, who is on the hunt for revenge after the murder of his mother by a group of Russian soldiers.
Directed by Stefano Sollima, ‘Without Remorse’ is based on the 1993 novel by Tom Clancy and it’s set to debut on Amazon Prime Video on April 30.
“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. They share our passion for amplifying new and exciting voices with an emphasis on diversity both above and below the line,” said Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke in a statement. “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. 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,” Jordan disclosed.
Elsewhere in the deal, Outlier is given a green light to develop other Amazon projects ranging from fashion and audible to music. At yesterday’s Super Bowl, Jordan appeared in Amazon’s Alexa commercial, which now features among YouTube’s top 10 ads that attracted much views on the video platform during the game.
Jordan, who is set to reprise his role as Adonis Johnson in the third instalment of ‘Creed’ will next be seen in the Denzel Washington directed film ‘Journal for Jordan’.
