Because Tom Cruise just can’t just enough of the stunt-filled action franchises, we’re getting a sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher later this year. On Wednesday, Paramount Pictures shared the first full-length trailer for the movie.
Strap in for the next two-and-a-half minutes as Tom Cruise goes crazy:
Here’s the synopsis of what looks to be an action-packed sequel:
“Jack Reacher: Never Go Back follows the title character as he returns to Virginia to meet the head of his former unit. But she’s missing, he’s being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, and he may even have a daughter. Making things right will lead him on a cross-country chase to uncover the truth – and maybe even a family.”
So let’s do a quick tally. Tom Cruise is currently involved in at least three ongoing action franchises that I can think of off the top of my head: Jack Reacher, Mission: Impossible and Edge of Tomorrow. Pretty impressive for a 53-year-old.
Although Christopher McQuarrie directed the first Jack Reacher movie, Edward Zwick, who previously worked with Cruise on The Last Samurai, will direct the second. The sequel will be based on the 2013 novel of the same name, Never Go Back, which is the 18th book in the Jack Reacher series.
