Tom Cruise to start shooting Jack Reacher 2 with Edward Zwick in November

08.12.2015

Lest you feel that Tom Cruise is only devoting sequel time to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, it looks like JACK REACHER 2 will begin shooting in November with director Edward Zwick.

The first film, written and directed by MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE ROGUE NATION's Christopher McQuarrie, proved to be a modest success and pulled in about $218 million worldwide. Part 2, to be modeled after "Never Go Back," is said to follow Reacher as he heads back to his old military base 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 can’t remember either transgression but gets to the bottom of it with cunning and sometimes brute force. Or in Cruise's case...5'7" force.

Cruise and Zwick previously collaborated together on the 19th century epic, THE LAST SAMURAI. While not presenting the world with a completely fresh story, it was wrapped in one hell of an entertaining package. If McQuarrie's not interested in returning to Reacher, I'd say they found a great replacement. I'm aware that Tom Cruise lacks the physicality of his book counterpart, but he certainly carried the personality and the moves with expertise. Count me in!

JACK REACHER 2 will be released sometime in 2016.

I'm down for another Jack Reacher film, really liked the first one & the beginning is so intense, it had a great villain & that car chase scene was bad ass.

Finally saw Rogue Nation yesterday & thought it was great, really fun movie, great story & the most intense in the series, definitely my favorite movie of the summer, bring on M:I 6.

I would watch a Cruise movie for as long as he keeps churning them out... Unless its co starring Cam Diaz.

The "Jack Reacher" series doesn't need to be big budget. I like the idea of this being a modest budgeted franchise with Tom Cruise anchoring it. I loved the original and cannot wait for this one. This is the kind of series someone like John McTiernan would direct.

One of my favorite Cruise films in The Last Samurai, so I'm more than happy to see these collaborate again on something like this.

I'll be honest, I realy didn't like the first one

Tom Cruise already has his vanity project franchise, it's Mission Impossible and it's fun. In Jack Reacher it was all like "Tom Cruise is an Olympic level shooter, but he's also the best driver in the world, he's also a champion level martial artist, he's homeless, but has great hair and perfect teeth.." and so on. It was almost a parody.

Hey bro, blame the source material, not the actor who played the part.

Great news.

I loved Jack Reacher. I know Cruise doesn't physically fit the bill, but it was a good movie. Years from now, I'll get around to reading the books and probably hate the Cruise movies, but right now? I'm excited.

I remember when people were complaining, and people were saying how Rock should have played him. But it makes sense for someone like Cruise, who doesn't look physically threatening and for people to test him vs someone who looks like the Rock who nobody would dare confront. So in the movie, it made perfect sense and i loved it.

I liked the first one. Do it! Why isn't McQuarrie coming back? I thought him and Tom were bros?

Having never read a single book and being completely unfamiliar with the property going into this movie, I thought Jack Reacher was a great action movie. Tom Cruise carried it well, I get there was criticism over his size but he pulled the character off really well and gave one hell of an entertaining story (minus any scene with Jai Courtney).
