More and more movies are shifting their plans. The latest domino to fall is the Michael B. Jordan-starring Tom Clancy adaptation Without Remorse, which Paramount had intended to release into cinemas next year. It has been pulled from the schedule, and now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has made a deal to sell the film to Amazon's video service.

The studio had been aiming to launch a new franchise with the film, focusing on Clark, AKA John Terrence Kelly. He's an ex-Navy Seal-turned-operations officer for the CIA who appears in 17 Clancy novels starting with 1988’s The Cardinal Of The Kremlin. Though mainly seen as a secondary character who helps Jack Ryan with the physical elements of any mission, Clark finally stepped into the spotlight with Remorse, which showed how he came to work for the agency. It finds him avenging his wife's murder and becoming involved in a larger conspiracy.

Jamie Bell, Jodie Turner-Smith, Stephanie McIntyre and Cam Gigandet are also in the cast, while Stefano Sollima is the director.

In related cinema-skipping news, pandemic thriller Songbird, which counts Michael Bayamong its producers will, in an ironic twist, go straight to premium video on demand status, at least in the US. The STX film, will be available across the pond for rental from 11 December at $19.99 for a 48-hour window. Following that release, it'll show up on an unnamed streaming service. The movie, which finds a mutated COVID virus still wreaking havoc across the world, follows an immune courier (KJ Apa) who must help the aspiring artist he loves (Sofia Carson) who appears to be infected. Adam Mason directed that one from a script he wrote with Simon Boyes. There's no word yet on a UK release plan, on screens big or small.
