JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK is On Its Way....
As you know, I am a die-hard Tom Cruise fan (I like him crazy, I like him sane, and I like him when he is still deciding). I also think he is actually a great actor who, like many others, needs a good vehicle to support him. So I usually pay attention to any announcement of a new movie he's in because I just know it's going to be super sized and entertaining. Which means, yes, I will definitely be tuning in to JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK, the follow-up to 2012's silent hit Jack Reacher.
Paramount Pictures has just announced that the film has commenced principal photography and production will take place in New Orleans. Now, I haven't read any of author Lee Child's books upon which these films are based, but I was mildly entertained by the first film (and seeing David Oyelowo play a bad guy for a change) so I interested to see how this story will unfold. Oscar-winner Edward Zwick, who directed Cruise in The Last Samurai, will helm this installment of the series that was previously directed by Christopher McQuarrie (who's producing this one).
There will apparently be three screenwriters attached to the film: Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2), Marshall Herskovitz (The Last Samurai) and Zwick--which seems like a helluva lot of writers for a film like this. But, you know, I guess we'll see how that works out.
JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK is set for release on October 21, 2016. I'll keep you updated as I learn more.
Any of you fans of the first film? Sound off in the comments section below.
