Video: Author Lee Child Happy with Tom Cruise Playing His Character 'Jack Reacher'


Watch this brand new featurette for Jack Reacher, the new Tom Cruise action pic based on a character created by author Lee Child. As Child states, the movie is based on the 9th book in his 17 book series "One Shot", but he considers it a good introduction to the character. Some who’d read the books (I admit, I have not) weren’t too happy with the casting of Cruise. Apparently the actor doesn’t fit the physical description.  But to me, as long as the author is happy, that’s what counts. Take a look:

“When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.”

Cruise stars along with Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Robert Duvall, and Werner Herzog. (Yes, that Werner Herzog) Directed by writer Christopher The Usual SuspectsMcQuarrie, making his directorial debut, Jack Reacher will be released December 21 in the US and 28th December in the UK. More as we get it. Everything we have, is here.
