Tom Cruise's JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK Commences Filming; Full Cast Revealed

Over the weekend, Tom Cruise was spotted at the LSU/Florida game and now Paramount has officially announced why he was in the area - Jack Reacher: Never Go Back has officially gone into production! The full cast, which includes Cobie Smulders, has also been revealed!


"You think I'm a hero? I am not a hero. I'm a drifter with nothing to lose. Now you killed that girl to put me in a frame. I mean to beat you to death and drink your blood from a boot! Now this is how it's gonna work. You're gonna give me the address and I'll be along when I'm damn good and ready. If she doesn't answer the phone when I call this number, if I even think you've hurt her, I disappear. And if you're smart, that scares you. Because I'm in your blind spot. And I have nothing better to do."

Yesterday, Paramount Pictures & Skydance announced that they've kicked off production on their upcoming Jack Reacher sequel, which has officially been titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. 

The film features the return of global megastar Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) as the titular Reacher and this time around, he'll be reunited with Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai), who will be directing with a script from himself, Richard Wenk, and Marshall Herskovitz. Joining Cruise for the second adventure are Cobie Smulders (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Danika Yarosh (Heroes Reborn), Austin Hebert (Bonnie and Clyde), Patrick Heusinger (Girlfriend's Guide To Divorce), Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton), and Holt McCallany (Gangster Squad).

The film will adapt Lee Child's 2013 novel Never Go Back.
