One of the film's I'm looking forward to this fall is the new Jack Reacher film, Never Go Back. Based on the series of novels by Lee Childs, the fist Jack Reacher film was released in 2012 starring Tom Cruise and was written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. The film did a really good job of adapting the novels and the film did well getting a 62% from critics and 67% from fans on Rotten Tomatoes.
The sequel to the film, Never Go Back, keeps McQuarrie on as producer but brings Ed Zwick (The Last Samurai) on as director and has Zwick, Richard Wenk (The Equalizer) and Marshall Herskovitz (The Last Samurai) on the script. The film also adds Colbie Smulders to play opposite Cruise. The studio has released the first poster for the film this morning.
Showing that any of the 21 novels are good jumping on points, the first Jack Reacher film adapted the novel One Shot which is ninth in the collection and Never Go Back is the eighteenth.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back hits theaters October 21st.
