Edward Zwick was asked by Paramount and Skydance to prepare the script and direct the second part of Jack Reacher. This is reported by the Variety edition.
The painting will be based on Lee Child's Never Come Back, in which Jack Reacher travels from South Dakota to Virginia, the headquarters of the US Army Military Police, to find out why his superior was arrested ... He soon becomes a suspect himself.
Note that Zvika and the leading actor Tom Cruise already have experience of working together. The actor starred in the movie directed by "The Last Samurai". The director of the first movie, Christopher McQuarrie, will produce the sequel.
The timing of work on a project called "Jack Reacher 2: Never Go Back" has not yet been specified. Most likely, the premiere will take place no earlier than 2016. Recall that the movie "Jack Reacher" was released in 2012. Despite the not-so-impressive box-office ($ 218 million), Paramount confirmed shortly after the premiere that it is ready to movie Lee Child's next book.
Edward Zwick's last work at the time of this writing was the movie Sacrificing a Pawn, released in 2014 and dedicated to the world chess champion Bobby Fischer.
