Betty Zhou visited ‘Jack Reacher: Never Go Back’ set in New Orleans on December 9th 2015, and here is the interview with a lot of new footage from the movie. Enjoy it!
Reacher is back. Back on our screens in October, and back in the new issue of Empire magazine this week. As a sneak preview of our far-reaching Reacher feature, here’s a new shot of Tom Cruise’s zero-nonsense vigilante in action.
As the picture makes clear, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back won’t see the nomadic shit-kicker eshewing violence in his pursuit of justice. But there’s more going on in this one than just punching, kicking and shooting wrongdoers. The clock in his head says it’s time for parenthood: a teenage daughter he didn’t know he had, called Samantha Dayton (Danika Yarosh), is appearing in his life.
How would Reacher deal with a 15-year-old, ponders Cruise in the new Empire of this strange new dynamic. It’s the characters around him who bring out different aspects of his personality. Can we expect a new-found domesticity for Reacher, then? Probably not, considering the nefarious conspiracy he and Cobie Smulders’ MP-on-the-run will be facing.
Pick up the new issue of Empire from all newsagents on 29 September (or subscribe here) for much more on Jack Reacher: Never Go Back from Cruise, Smulders and director Ed Zwick. The movie itself punches its way into multiplexes on October 21.
The ‘Jack Reacher: Never Go Back’ European Premiere will take place in London on October 20th at Leicester Square.
We still have to wait one more accursed month for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, the newest film in the hopefully neverending series about Tom Cruise fighting everyone for justice. To tide you over, Paramount just released a new lo-fi 8-bit videogame called Jack Reacher: Never Stop Punching. You play as Reacher, the heroic ex-military policeman, who wanders the mean streets of these United States hunting for bad guys to pummel.
The game’s a pretty straightforward side-scroller: hit Z to punch, hit X to jump, pick up the keyboard and crush it against your forehead to assert dominance over your environment. It looks a little bit like Bad Dudes vs. DragonNinja, a game about tough dudes saving the president from ninjas, which would also make a great plot for Jack Reacher 5.
Light the match and cue the music.
After contentious dealmaking halted preproduction on Mission: Impossible 6, earlier this summer, Tom Cruise is on the verge of closing his deal to return to the Paramount action-thriller franchise.
Cruise’s return for a sixth installment in a movie series that he has been toplining and producing since 1996 seemed like a no-brainer, but negotiations with Paramount took an unexpected turn with the studio, which was co-financing the movie with Skydance, digging in on things such as backend profit participation.
The project was heading toward a January 2017 start when the pause button was pushed.
Now sources tell THR that issues have been resolved and M:I6 is being restarted. Spring 2017 will be the new start time.
Christopher McQuarrie, who reinvigorated the franchise with the fifth installment, wrote the script and will direct.
Paramount declined to comment.
