Child told the radio station that there won't be more Jack Reacher movies, stating, "Cruise, for all his talent, didn't have that physicality". "I really enjoyed working with Cruise", he continued. He's a really nice guy. "We had a lot of fun", he said. "But ultimately the readers are right".

In the Jack Reacher series, the title character is a U.S. Army veteran who works as a detective for hire.

He said: "Cruise, for all his talent, didn't have that physicality".

Reacher, according to Vanity Fair, is repeatedly described in Child's 22 novels as a massive six feet five inches tall-dwarfing Cruise's reported five-foot-seven build-with hands the size of, alternately, Thanksgiving turkeys, dinner plates, and rotisserie chickens.

Tom Cruise starred in two Jack Reacher movies, and both did well at the box office. He also mentioned that he wants the readers who were dissatisfied with Cruise to give suggestions on an actor who would fit the part. "We're going to take it to Netflix or something like that". Cruise nailed the intimidating nature of Reacher, and McQuarrie's first film remains a really swell hard-boiled thriller.

Clark was soon touring with country legend Hank Williams and first played the Grand Ole Opry in 1950, according to his publicist. Roy is preceded in death by his beloved grandson Elijah Clark who passed at the age of fourteen on September 24, 2018.

The movies, 2012's Jack Reacher and 2016's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, were produced by Skydance and Cruise/Wagner and distributed by Paramount. Long form streaming television, with, new actor.

What do you think of this new lease on life for Jack Reacher - and who would you pick to play the character? The series is expected to be rebooted as a TV series after two feature films were released starring Cruise.

I have never read the Jack Reacher books as they are not my kind of novel, I thought Jack Reacher was ok, but never saw the sequel.

"That will have one sad, awkward effect in that Tom Cruise doesn't act on television so we will have to have a new lead actor".
