Tom Cruise Set To Return As JACK REACHER In Adaptation Of NEVER GO BACK
It has been revealed today that Paramount Pictures are moving ahead with a sequel to 2012's Jack Reacher, with the hope being that Christopher McQuarrie can helm the follow-up - based on Never Go Back - after finishing work on the fifth instalment of Mission Impossible.
Deadline has confirmed that work is indeed now moving ahead on a sequel to 2012's Jack Reacher. That movie went on to earn $218 million worldwide on a budget of only $57 million, and a follow-up has been put on the fast track with the studio already looking for writers. They're apparently hoping that Christopher McQuarrie will direct, but he obviously can't write this one as he's too busy preparing for Mission Impossible 5. According to the site, "This one will be based on Never Go Back, which was published earlier this fall. In it, Reacher heads back to his old military based in Virginia to take a woman to dinner who is now the commanding officer. By the time he gets there, she has been arrested and Reacher finds himself being charged with pummeling one guy, and fathering a child with a woman. He can’t remember either transgression, but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force." An interesting premise, and the news that it's based on Lee Child's latest novel should come as very welcome news to fans.
