Robert Knepper has been cast in Paramount’s upcoming sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. Once again starring Tom Cruise in the title role, the film sees Reacher return to the headquarters of his old Army unit, only to find he’s been accused of a 16-year-old murder. Knepper plays Gen. Harkness, a retired general-turned-CEO of a private military contractor firm. He’s described as a man of power, experience and authority who thinks he’s the hero and is not afraid to do what’s necessary.
Cobie Smulders, Robert Catrini, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Austin Hebert co-star. Edward Zwick is directing from a script he co-wrote with Richard Wenk and Marshall Herskovitz. From Skydance Productions and TC Productions, it’s due in theaters October 16.
Knepper will next be seen in Universal’s Hard Target 2 and the upcoming reboot of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks on Showtime. His recent credits include The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 & 2, Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters, R.I.P.D., The Day The Earth Stood Still, Hitman, and Transporter 3. He’s repped by Innovative Artists and LINK Entertainment.
In a new comic released with in conjunction with “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’s” DVD/Blu-ray, director Christopher McQuarrie and artist Owen Freeman reveal how Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) went rogue (via Wired).
The film finds Hunt on the lam when the government disbands the Impossible Missions Force (IMF). Hunt opts to continue pursuing the Syndicate instead of hanging up his post, which puts him on the run from both; the film jumps in time shortly thereafter, by about 6 months. The comic explores what Hunt did in that time.
