Paramount Pictures has just released via People Magazine the first official images for Tom Cruise and director Ed Zwick's follow up to the 2012 big screen adaptation of Jack Reacher which was directed Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation). The highly anticipated sequel will follow Tom Cruise as the titular character once again as he gets into more interesting badass trouble! I personally, just simply can't can't wait for this film and these images most likely mean we will be getting a nice teaser soon.
Check out the images below for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and see what the director had to say about the legendary Tom Cruise. Also if you haven't seen Jack Reacher, go treat yourself, its an awesome film. In case you don't have time to check out the film immediately, treat yourself to a badass scene below. Also leave us your thoughts on the upcoming sequel.
Along with the official images, director Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai) talks about Tom Cruise's insanely awesome work ethic:
“I’ve never seen anybody more prepared both physically and mentally than Tom, He’s tireless and unbelievably focused.”
He also talked about Cruise doing his own stunts, as usual:
“It’s a pretty boring job to be Tom’s stunt double, He did all of his own stunts. It’s almost a hallmark of what he does. He does every bit of it himself.”
Here's the press release:
"The new film, a sequel to 2012’s “JACK REACHER,” is based on author Lee Child’s 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, Never Go Back. The film is written by Richard Wenk (“THE EXPENDABLES 2,” “THE EQUALIZER”), Marshall Herskovitz (“LOVE AND OTHER DRUGS,” “THE LAST SAMURAI”) & Zwick.
Cruise is producing alongside Don Granger (“MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION,” “JACK REACHER”), Skydance Media’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg (“MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION,” “ EOSTORM”), and Christopher McQuarrie (“MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – ROGUE NATION,” “ ALKYRIE”). The executive producers are Paula Wagner (“WAR OF THE WORLDS,” “THE OTHERS”) and Herb Gains (“THE JUDGE,” “NON-STOP”)."
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is set to hit theaters on October 21, 2016.
