This isn’t the first time Jack Reacher is getting a live-action adaptation. The character was played by Tom Cruise in the 2012 movie Jack Reacher, based on the 2005 novel One Shot. The movie was written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, with whom Cruise works now on the Mission: Impossible franchise. The sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, directed by Edward Zwick, was released in 2016. Although the critics praised Cruise’s performance, Lee Child revealed that he wasn’t very happy with Cruise as the casting choice for Jack Reacher.
