Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016, D: Zwick) S: Cruise, Smulders

EXCLUSIVE: Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions are moving ahead with a sequel to Jack Reacher, the 2012 film that starred Tom Cruise and is based on Lee Childís 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 Iíve learned itís 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 based 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 canít remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force.

The studio is out to writers; Jack Reacher director Christopher McQuarrie adapted the first one, but is too busy prepping MI5 for a summer production start. Cruise and the studio hope McQuarrie will direct the sequel. Why are they making a sequel? The original cost around $57 million in production costs, grossed $218 million worldwide and has done well in ancillaries. Before studios got tentpole crazy, trying to launch franchise with massively budget originals, that was exactly the kind of numbers that made studios go back for more and try to grow a franchise, particularly when there is popular source material like the Child novels.

Cruiseís new film, Edge Of Tomorrow, will get its first trailer this week, one that will play this Friday on all prints of the Peter Jackson-directed The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. While Cruise most certainly wonít do the Reacher film before MI5, it is possible he might squeeze in one of the other films he has percolating, including Go Like Hell. Heís going to play Mustang designer Carroll Shelby in a film about the battle between Ford and Ferrari for sports car supremacy at Le Mans in the 1960s in what shapes up as The Right Stuff for sports cars. Oblivion helmer Joseph Kosinski is prepping to reteam with Cruise in that film.

Guess Cruise is still big overseas. I don't remember the first one doing that well stateside.

I thought the 1st was surprisingly good. Very stripped down movie, which I liked.

I really enjoyed the first and Werner Herzog's creepy role.

Awesome news. I loved the first one. Hopefully somehow Christopher McQuarrie manages to direct this one as well.

Yes. He's still very big overseas, and typically his movies make a lot more overseas than in the US.

I'm looking forward to this though. I thought the first movie was a very underrated ass kicking gem and I'm glad that there going to move forward with a sequel.

I'm much more interested in the Carroll Shelby project that is mentioned in the OP. Cruise as Jack Reacher does nothing for me, though I liked the first film more than any of the MI movies.

I hope they capitalize on a missed opportunity in the first film, and keep everything that Jack needs in this one just slightly farther than an arm's length away.

I think the thread title needs adjusting...I'm not sure if "Never Go Black" will really be the title if its based on "Never Go Back".

I did too. Most people I know who saw it really liked it. Reminded me of a 70s action flick a little bit.

It needs a better supporting cast for the second time around. Rosamund Pike was okay, but she solved all of her questions by staring in the space.

I'm still a little butthurt that tiny Tom Cruise is Reacher, but I really liked the first one.

Someone on twitter mentioned that, with Werner Herzog as the villain in the first movie, the sequel should feature another creepy looking director as the villain, my suggestion, Lars Von Trier
