Coming to the small screen
The news is out! Jack Reacher is moving to the small screen (just think how large he'll look there)! Lee is asking Reacher Creatures everywhere to suggest actors to play Reacher. He's hoping for an unknown actor (or relative unknown); someone in the 30-55 age range (don't forget, Reacher is 36 in Killing Floor and there are the prequel novels to consider); and he's got to be BIG and muscular (near to 6'5" / 240 lbs. with hands like frozen supermarket chickens). Do you know anybody like that? Let us know!
As for the movies, they are no more. We thank Tom Cruise for bringing Reacher to the big screen and everything he did to promote the books to a wider audience. Lee says "I loved working with him, and he's a terrific guy, and I loved what he did in both movies, but THE FANS never quite accepted the physicality aspect, so we're making a change. But I'll miss him and won't hear a word against him."
We know you all want info but there's nothing to report yet. As soon as we have more, we'll update this page!
Lee on the big screen
JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK continues the trend of honoring the creator of Jack Reacher by including a cameo during which Lee plays the role of someone who has to vet the hero's credentials. You can find a still of the scene, and also one from the first movie, at the bottom of this page.

If you've read NEVER GO BACK already, you may have noticed that Reacher and Turner don't visit New Orleans in the book but they did visit quite a number of other places and states. So, with Lee's permission (who has participated in efforts to support the NOLA economy), the great city of New Orleans was added to the mix.
JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK stars Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, Cobie Smulders (Avengers: Age of Ultron) as Susan Turner, and Robert Knepper (Heroes, Prison Break) as General Harkness. The cast also includes Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton), Danika Yarosh (Heroes Reborn), Holt McCallany (Blue Bloods), with Patrick Heusinger (Quantum Break) as "The Hunter". Screenplay by Edward Zwick, Marshall Herskovitz and Richard Wenk.
