Jack Reacher

Even though there are 17 Jack Reacher novels and 2 short stories featuring the stoic action hero, don’t plan on seeing Lee Childs‘ character back on the big screen any time soon. The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that the box office for the Paramount film starring Tom Cruise has been solid but not spectacular enough to ensure a franchise launch. The production house is waiting on business from major Asian territories to see if it can earn another $100m to reach a $250m total goal. If it does, negotiations may begin to see Cruise return for a sequel, but even if that lofty goal is met, the secondary challenge will be keeping the sequel’s budget around the same $60m of the first flick.

In other words, there’s only a slim chance of seeing Jack Reacher 2. At least until Paramount reboots the property with Chris Pine in the role.
