With Bourne, Bond and Ryan making commercial waves in action movie heartland, it is no surprise that Paramount have lassoed Tom Cruise into another Jack Reacher film.
The first film did very well, despite an Ethan Huntish Tom Cruise typecasting cloud hanging over the production, it turned out that Cruise deserved far more credit that he was given. He carved out a decent niche for himself as the eponymous hero of Lee Child’s book series, and he had Rosamund Pike and flipping Werner Herzog to act against, so that’s no bad thing.
For the next film, entitled Never Go Back, we have a book synopsis to work from, and a couple of new images which were released today. Check them out below.
After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had.
Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn’t a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?
What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn’t expect to hear these words: ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’
Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?
