Tom Cruise’s ‘Jack Reacher 2’ Drawing Ed Zwick to Direct

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

Paramount grossed $218 million worldwide from 2012’s “Jack Reacher,” directed by Christopher McQuarrie from his own script and based on the Lee Child 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 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.
