Jack Reacher will definitely be back… but in the tv series
Mine nothing, the first Jack Reacher was released in 2012, is a film that is very important in the course of recent Tom Cruise since it is on this occasion that he made direct for the first time by Christopher McQuarrie who will provide him with his two Mission : Impossible the most popular.
And it is true that Jack Reacher, it was nice, brutal, and badass. This has allowed us to believe again Tom Cruise in action hero. After that, we will not say the same thing about its sequel, Jack Reacher : Never Go Back, exit in 2016 and directed by Edward Zwick, who overrated a little too much on the wave without necessarily making something new.
Jack Reacher, must not drool on the reels
We wondered where the franchise was passed, and if, in between two adventures, explosive, Ethan Hunt, Cruise and McQuarrie were going to give him a third pane. If Jack Reacher will be well and truly back in the coming months, we learn via the BBC Radio that it is going to have a big internal revolution since, if one believes the creator of the character in the novels of origin, Lee Child, Jack Reacher will soon be right for a tv series, without Cruise and McQuarrie , of course. And the motivation of such a project is very surprising :
“I really enjoyed working with Tom Cruise. It is really a nice guy. And we had a lot of fun. But, in the end, the readers are right. The size of Reacher is very important, and it is an element that defines them. The idea is that when Reacher enters a room, everyone becomes nervous.
Otherwise, he gets upset
Cruise, with all the talent he has, does not have this physical element. So I decided that there would be no more film with Tom Cruise. Instead, we are going to bring the franchise on Netflix or something like that. A large format limited to streaming, with a new actor. And I want all the readers who were upset by the choice of Tom Cruise help me to choose the right actor for the tv series. We are going to do a reboot to total the saga and we’ll find the person we need.”
As you can see, the project is still in its infancy and no chain seems to be attached to the future series for the time being, or any studio. Nevertheless, at a time when we thought we had heard everything to justify the construction of a reboot, this statement surprised us a lot. Want to remake a franchise because of the small size of its main actor, frankly, was daring to go out without laughing.
But be quiet, you finally ! It is not the size that counts, we tell you…
