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.
Well that makes me happy this morning. I liked the film well enough and would be glad to see a sequel. The only question left is which novel will the next film be based on in the series? Last year’s film simply titled Jack Reacher was based on the 2005 novel One Shot. There are 16 other novels in the series.
