A Paramount Pictures film, "Without Remorse," starring Michael B. Jordan, is expected to film in DuPont Circle this week.
From Killmonger to Creed, Michael B. Jordan has been dominating the Hollywood movie scene, and it looks like he’s back at it again—only this time in Washington, D.C.
A new movie starring Jordan, Jodie Turner-Smith from Queen and Slim, and Jamie Bell from Fantastic Four and Rocketman will film around DuPont Circle on December 19 and 20. The film, Without Remorse, is based on a Tom Clancy novel and is expected to hit theaters on September 18, 2020.
Jordan will star as John Clark, a former Navy SEAL-turned-CIA analyst and director of the elite counterterrorism unit Rainbow Six, who goes on a path to avenge his wife’s murder, only to find himself inside a larger conspiracy. Clark is from the same world as Jack Ryan, whom we have also seen filming around the streets of Washington, D.C.
Although there is no information about whether Jordan or his costars will be on set in Washington, D.C., you can expect to see some action-movie thrills and secret spy vibes around DuPont Circle this week.
