‘Jack Reacher’: Holt McCallany Rounds Out Cast of Tom Cruise’s Sequel

Holt McCallany has joined Tom Cruise in Paramount and Skydance’s “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.”

Austin Hebert (“The Answer”) has also joined the cast, which already includes Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge and Patrick Heusinger.

Ed Zwick will be helming the pic. Zwick and and Marshall Herskovitz wrote the most recent draft of the script after Richard Wenk penned the original draft.

Paramount grossed $218 million worldwide from 2012’s “Jack Reacher,” directed by Christopher McQuarrie from his own script based on the Lee Child series of novels. The sequel will be based on Child’s “Never Go Back,” in which Reacher travels from South Dakota to the Virginia headquarters of the U.S. Army Military Police Corps and finds that his new commanding officer has been arrested.

Cruise, Don Granger, Skydance Media’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Christopher McQuarrie are producing. Paula Wagner and Herb Gains are exec producing.

Production is underway in New Orleans.

McCallany has had a busy 2015, already having been seen in “Blackhat,” “Run All Night” and “The Perfect Guy.” He is currently filming Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” opposite Tom Hanks.

He is repped by APA, Atlas Artists and attorney Rick Genow.
