No more Tom Cruise as Alan Ritchson takes over as Lee Child’s hero.
The ‘Jack Reacher’ film series was a bit of a mixed bag. I loved the first film but found the second to be lacking somewhat, despite having Tom Cruise back as the ex-military cop. Lee Child has written so many great stories with the hero, there is a deluge of great storytelling that could be used. So far, it’s been a case of just taking what they want from the novels and making a film out of them. That could be all about to change. Hitting Prime Video on February 4th, 2022, a TV streaming series will be launched. Named simply ‘Reacher’, Tom Cruise has been replaced by Alan Ritchson as the title character. The first season has adapted from Lee Child’s first novel, ‘The Killing Floor’.
We have been given the first trailer for the upcoming series. And it looks like we could be in for a true adaptation of Child’s work. Let’s take a look:
Ritchson is joined in the series by Malcolm Goodwin, Willa Fitzgerald. Bruce McGill, Maria Sten, Hugh Thompson. And Kristen Kreuk will be appearing also. Lee Child himself is amongst the executive producers for the series. Nick Santora, Scott Sullivan, Don Granger. Marcy Ross, Dana Goldberg, and Christopher McQuarrie are also on executive producing duties. Nick Santora is also responsible for the development of the show.
‘Reacher’ reaches us on Prime Video on February 4th, 2022.
