JACK REACHER Sequel Possibly in the Works at Paramount and Skydance
Back in January, we reported that a sequel to writer/director Christopher McQuarrie’s Jack Reacher was looking unlikely. That was also about $50 million ago. Now that the film has crossed $200 million worldwide, Paramount and Skydance are reportedly in the process of building the scaffolding for another installment. The previously cited box office target was $250 million, but when you’ve got a proven draw in Tom Cruise (Jack Reacher marks his 19th film to hit that total), it makes those dice easier to roll. Now that the (anti)hero has been introduced to a wider audience than only those familiar with the Lee Child novels, Deadline reports that the studios are at least running the numbers on the potential franchise. Let us know if you think they should go ahead with another Jack Reacher in the comments below!
