Tom Cruise returns as Jack Reacher in a film based on the 18th book in Lee Child’s series – Never Go Back. This time the writer/ director of the first film Christopher McQuarrie has taken a back seat and serves as producer while he cooks up the next instalment in the Mission: Impossible franchise. Taking his place is Edward Zwick who last worked with Cruise on The Last Samurai back in 2003.
This time the nomadic former Army Major returns to his old base in Virginia to find his ally Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders) has been replaced and he’s been accused of a sixteen-year-old murder.
The film also stars Robert Knepper, Danika Yarosh and Aldis Hodge with a screenplay by Richard Wenk and Edward Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz.
