Jack Reacher has had two movies until now, and there have speculations that a possible third movie might be coming up. The previous two were loved by the fans, and so it was only fair to assume that there might be a third installment. However, Lee Child has hinted that there won’t be a third film. Lee child has received a fair amount of criticism over Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher. Well, Tom Cruise is 5ft 7in, and Jack Reacher is 6ft 5in. So, in this demanding world, there needs to be a tall Jack Reacher.
Lee has defended Tom time and time again. He said, “Reacher’s size in the books is a metaphor for an unstoppable force, which Cruise portrays in his way. With another actor, you might get 100 percent of the height but only 90 percent of Reacher. With Tom, you’ll get 100 percent of Reacher with 90 percent of the height.”
At the International Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, he revealed that he’s looking forward to the new possible projects for Jack Reacher. He said, “Hopefully, with a bit of luck, we will go to television and make a Netflix, or something like that. That will have one sad, awkward consequence that Tom Cruise doesn’t act on television, so we will have to have a new lead actor.”
Grisham, who has seen Tom Cruise playing Reacher in two movies so far said the same thing that the fans were demanding. He said, “I bet the new Jack Reacher will be a bit taller?”
Lee Child replied: “You’re damn right about that. I don’t know who it will be, but he will be pretty big. I don’t know how popular the series will be, but hopefully, it will be long-running. Television is now the thing to do.”
So, it seems that there will be no more movies but, there will be a TV series. There has been no word yet, but the rumors are growing strong, and they’ll be hoping to get a tall actor so that show might become better than the movies (just kidding). Seriously though, I do hope that there is a TV show.
