movies 'Jack Reacher' Sequel Unlikely to Move Forward

16 posts in this topic

Sources tell THR that McQuarrie?s adaptation of the novel One Shot must do ?exceptional business in key Asian territories? in order to justify moving forward with another Jack Reacher film. Against a reported budget of $60 million (not counting marketing), the pic?s worldwide total now stands at $153 million. Apparently Paramount says the film must make $250 million worldwide in order to warrant a follow-up, which means the actioner has a ways to go when it opens in the Asian territories.

Cruise has always been a draw in Asian markets and the film stands to make some serious coin when it hits theaters in Japan, China, and Korea, but whether it can manage $100 million or so remains to be seen. If the film does hit the magic number, THR cautions that the studio would still need to negotiate a deal with Cruise that would keep the sequel?s budget at about the same number as the first film.

I hope this does get a sequel, I really enjoyed seeing it at the cinema. The car chase scene is particularly good.

I'm kinda surprised that the movie hasn't done that well in the US. I guess they picked a bad date or something.

I also wonder if Cruise being out of his normal character didn't hurt the film. Plus, I know several fans of the Reacher series who refused to see this film because they said Cruise wasn't Reacher.

Those fans need to get over it. Any movie adaptation of a book series will never meet the die hard fans expectations.

They may need to but I doubt they will.

The film was ok but I think Cruise really played the part well. I would check out a sequel.

I thought this was dubbed the next "pirates of the Caribbean" when it came to sequels.

It was released when The Hobbit was also playing.
