There is a Jack Reacher TV show in development with a new actor in the lead role


We saw Tom Cruise play Jack Reacher in a couple of movies, but now it seems they are going to recast the character for a new TV show.

Author Lee Child, who created the character, was talking to the BBC about it. In Child’s books, Reacher is described as 6ft 5in tall. Cruise is 5ft 7in.

Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality. I really enjoyed working with Cruise. He’s a really, really nice guy. We had a lot of fun, but ultimately the readers are right. The size of Reacher is really, really important and it’s a big component of who he is.

The idea is that when Reacher walks into a room, you’re all a little nervous just for that first minute. And Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality.

So what I’ve decided to do is – there won’t be any more movies with Tom Cruise. Instead, we’re going to take it to Netflix or something like that. Long form streaming television, with a completely new actor.

And I want all those readers who were upset about Tom Cruise to help me out – participate in choosing the right actor for the TV series. We’re rebooting and starting over and we’re going to try and find the perfect guy.

The author said a deal was signed last week to make a new streaming show.

Who would you like to see play Jack Reacher?
