Some people are called Jack Reacher the next Jason Bourne. Too bad that we’ve already got a next Jason Bourne. Still, the Jack Reacher film holds a lot of promise. A lot of people were surprised that Cruise was cast in the roll because he’ll be playing a character that is described in the novels as being 6’5″, 250 lbs and of imposing size. As you all know… that isn’t Tom Cruise. But then again, I’m not sure if the book described Werner Herzog as the villain either.
Jack Reacher is set for December 21st, 2012.

Here’s Amazon’s Synopsis of the novel:
Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me.
And sure enough, ex—military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter–a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right–and soon the slam-dunk case explodes.
Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning–and then beat him shot for shot. [Amazon]
