Just 2 Jack Reacher movies have been created:
It is unlikely there will be more because Lee Child is working on a Jack Reacher TV show instead.
Jack Reacher (2013)
Based on the book One Shot.
I thought it was great. I’ve seen it 3 times now.
Sure, casting Tom Cruise was a bit strange and he didn’t fit our mental image of Jack Reachers hulking frame but his superb acting makes up for it.
Lee Child himself said “With another actor you might get 100% of the height but only 90% of Reacher. With Tom, you’ll get 100% of Reacher with 90% of the height.”
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)
Based on the book by the same title.
In theatres: 21 October 2016.
Will Tom Cruise Always Be Jack Reacher?
I heard a rumour that Tom Cruise owns the rights to all the Jack Reacher movies. If it’s true, that could be why he’s in them – because he has the decision making power to cast himself!
