Tom Cruise developing new Jack Reacher film

By Tribute on December 10, 2013 | 4 Comments

Almost a year after the film was released in theaters, Jack Reacher may be getting a sequel. Tom Cruise, who stars as the title character, is looking to make a second movie from Lee Child’s thrilling book series with Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions. The second film is to be based on the newest novel in the 18-part series, titled Never Go Back. As of right now, they are looking for writers to pen the script as the writer and director of the first film, Christopher McQuarrie, is busy working on Mission: Impossible 5. Never Let Go follows Jack right after he heads back to his military base to meet a woman, who is now a commanding officer, for dinner. When he arrives, she has been arrested and Jack is charged with murder and finds out he may be the father of a woman’s child. Unable to remember either event happening, Jack uses his quick wit and daring physicality to get to the bottom of the issues. ~Brie Davis

    ugh, i didn’t really like him as Jack Reacher in the first film…. plus! didn’t it do not so well in the box office?

    I agree with Sarah, Jack Reacher was just not good. Didn’t mind Cruise in the role, it just was poorly acted and the script was awful.

    Sweet. The first one was fun to watch. I was hoping they’d make another one.

    I loved the movie. I thought it kicked Ass and Cruise was a Bad Ass in it. The books are great too and I can wait for the second movie to come along.
