Jack Reacher's Back; Tom Cruise Developing New Bestseller 'Never Go Back'

Paramount and Skydance Productions are moving ahead with a sequel to Jack Reacher, the 2012 film that starred Tom Cruise and is based on Lee Child’s bestselling novel series. A rumor went around that the studio might be trying to squeeze in a Reacher film before Mission: Impossible 5. Paramount has denied that, but I’ve learned it’s trying to fast track another installment. This one will be based on Never Go Back, which was published earlier this fall. In it, Reacher heads back to his old military base 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.

I liked the first one 'Jack Reacher'. It wasn't the best movie ever, but I enjoyed the action and even the story itself. It was rather entertaining.

Agreed but you never found out why "that guy" was bad. Not fingers guy but the other guy.

The first film had its moments but ultimately I felt like Cruise didn't give Reacher enough personality to breathe life into the film. It did have some of the best car chases in recent memory, a great villain in Werner Herzog, and an opening that grabs you. Is Christopher Mcquarrie going to do the follow up as well as MI5? Something tells me that's a bit of a stretch.
