JACK REACHER 2 To Begin Filming This November!

The opening weekend box office success of Christopher MacQuarrie's latest, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, has done quite the justice for actor Tom Cruise. As such, the floodgates have further opened on the possible reprisal of a few of the actor's recent roles in films like the live-action anime adaptation, Edge Of Tomorrow, and a sequel to his 2012 book-based action suspense thriller, Jack Reacher 2.

The latter didn't exactly do so well during its theatrical run with a domestic total of $80 million dollars under its belt, although grossing $138 million abroad earnings reportedly became a huge help. For this, talk of a sequel has kept things simmering, and now word from THR writes that the film is set to begin shooting this November, reunitng Cruise with The Last Samurai helmer Ed Zwick in the director's chair.

The 2012 film, inspired by Lee Child's ninth installation of the titular book series, "One Shot", published in 2005, was directed by MacQuarrie and focused on Reacher as he is swept into a conspiracy involving the murder of five people. The new film is said to be adapting the eighteenth book in the series, "Never Go Back", with Reacher resigned to using his cunning and brute force upon returning to his old military base when his dinner date is arrested and he's mysteriously charged with pummeling a guy and fathering a child.

Paramount and Skydance are positioning the film for a late 2016 release while Cruise completes his latest crime pic, Mena, with Edge Of Tomorrow helmer director Doug Liman directing, and plans a summer shoot for the sixth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise. Stay tuned!
