Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have released the first Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer, featuring Tom Cruise reprising his role as the title character, opposite Cobie Smulders (“How I Met Your Mother,” Avengers: Age of Ultron).
A sequel to 2012’s Jack Reacher, the film is directed by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond) and written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2, The Equalizer), Marshall Herskovitz (Love & Other Drugs, The Last Samurai) and Zwick, based on author Lee Child’s 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, “Never Go Back.”
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back follows the title character as he returns to Virginia to meet the head of his former unit. But she’s missing, he’s being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, and he may even have a daughter. Making things right will lead him on a cross-country chase to uncover the truth – and maybe even a family.
Cruise produced alongside Don Granger (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jack Reacher), Skydance Media’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Geostorm), and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Valkyrie). The executive producers are Paula Wagner (War of the Worlds, The Others) and Herb Gains (The Judge, Non-Stop).
In theaters October 21st, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back co-stars Danika Yarosh (“Heroes Reborn,” “Shameless”), Austin Hebert (“Bonnie and Clyde”), Patrick Heusinger (Quantum Break, Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce), Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton, A Good Day to Die Hard), and Holt McCallany (“Blue Bloods,” Gangster Squad).
