In further proof that there is a higher being, talks are ongoing for a movie adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six. Not the game, but the actual book. John Clark, Ding Chavez, a high stakes amusement park shootout and all that. Ryan Reynolds is reportedly discussing a potential role as ex-Navy Seal John Clark, the grizzled veteran who oversees the Rainbow Six team. He could be a good shout after Deadpool, and he’s certainly done plenty to banish the horrifying atrocity that was Smokin’ Aces.

For those of you that haven’t braved the hefty tome that is Rainbow Six, it follows a multi-national counterterrorist known as, you guessed it, Rainbow Six, travelling across the globe and blasting terrorists away.

A movie adaptation has been mooted for well over a decade now, but according to Deadline these talks have advanced somewhat, with Akiva Goldsmith (The Dark Tower) in as writer/producer and Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol) on script duties.

Having read the book about 15 years ago or so, I can confirm it’s pretty fantastic, but it would have to give way to a long ass movie. The talk is that Paramount wants to push it into big franchise territory though, and it would be followed up by an adaptation of Without Remorse. Whatever the case, I’m foolishly hoping for even a tiny cameo from one of Siege’s stars, however unlikely. Watching Thermite strut up to a wall and say “There’s a really big fucking hole, coming right up” would make my day.

We’ll bring you more if we hear of it, but for now, the Rainbow Six movie is in the earliest stages of planning so don’t expect to see it anytime soon.

That could be a good movie. The first 20 mins will be Ryan Reynolds character waiting for a match though.

if you'd read the article more thoroughly you'd have seen that it is based on the book by Tom Clancy and not the game
