Tom Cruise’s ‘Jack Reacher 2’ Set for October 2016 Release

Paramount has set an Oct. 21, 2016, release date for Tom Cruise’s “Jack Reacher 2.”

Paramount and Skydance brought on Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz in March to rewrite Richard Wenk’s script for “Jack Reacher 2,” with plans for Zwick to direct the sequel.

“Jack Reacher” grossed $218 million worldwide, directed by Christopher McQuarrie from his own script and based on the Lee Child book series. 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.

Zwick and Herskovitz worked with Cruise on 2003’s “The Last Samurai.” Zwick directed the upcoming “Pawn Sacrifice,” starring Tobey Maguire as Bobby Fischer and Liev Schreiber as Boris Spassky.

McQuarrie will exec produce “Jack Reacher 2” with Cruise and Don Granger.

Paramount slotted “Jack Reacher 2” for Oct. 21, 2016, a day after Warner Bros. decided to move “Geostorm” off the date and into 2017. Other titles on the 2016 date are Sony’s “Underworld 5” and Universal’s “Ouija 2.”

Paramount, Skydance and Cruise have seen impressive performance from “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” which has taken in $480 million worldwide in a month. Cruise declared in July that plans are in the works for a sixth “Mission: Impossible” but no date has been set for shooting and no director has yet been attached.
