Tom Cruise's JACK REACHER Unlikely To Get A Sequel Without Hitting $250 Million Worldwide

Overshadowed by big Christmas releases such as Django Unchained and Les Miserables, Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher is unlikely to get a sequel unless it performs well in Asian territories over the next couple of months. Read on for details!


The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Paramount have decided that the fate of the Jack Reacher franchise (based on Lee Child's novel One Shot) now hinges on how well it performs in key Asian territories such as Japan, China and Korea later this year. With a budget of $60 million, the Tom Cruise starrer has grossed $153 million to date, $72.6 million of which comes from North America. Now, you would think that the fact that it has more than doubled its budget would be enough for the studio to give a sequel the green light, but that's not the case according to the site's sources. Instead, Paramount will only consider a follow-up if it reaches $250 million worldwide. Even if it does reach this number, Paramount and Skydance will still reportedly have to "negotiate a deal with Cruise that would keep the sequel's budget at roughly the same price". This may sound like an impossible challenge, but 2008's Knight & Day went on to earn $28.3 million in Japan and $14 million in Korea alone.
