Is Jack Reacher coming to the small screen? Deadline reports there is a TV show in the works based on the Lee Child books and Tom Cruise movies.
The franchise centers on Jack Reacher, a former military officer who begins investigating crimes. The book series has spawned two feature films starring Tom Cruise as Reacher.
In an interview with BBC Radio Manchester, Child said he is working on a Jack Reacher TV series. Unfortunately, Cruise will not be involved in the project, but you can read more info below:
I really enjoyed working with Cruise. He’s a really, really nice guy. We had a lot of fun. But ultimately the readers are right. The size of Reacher is really, really important and it’s a big component of who he is… So what I’ve decided to do is – there won’t be any more movies with Tom Cruise. Instead we’re going to take it to Netflix or something like that. Long-form streaming television, with a completely new actor.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of the Jack Reacher books and/or movies? Would you watch the TV show?
