There's no question of anticipation for actor Tom Cruise in the several titles and sequels fans are still hoping for, particularly with respect to the forthcoming release of Jack Reacher 2. The first film in 2012, inspired by author Lee Child's series of titular novels, did well enough globally which eventually left space for a sequel, and now filming is set to begin this November as of last month.

For this, we now have word from Deadline that producers at Paramount and Skydance have stamped the film's release date on October 21, 2016. Ed Zwick, who last directed Cruise leading the cast of the 2005 war epic, The Last Samurai, is directing, and as enthused as he is to helm the film, promises to sustain a tone similar to the darkness and humor seen in the first film, according to JoBlo.

The 2012 film, inspired by Lee Child's ninth installation of the book series, "One Shot", published in 2005, was directed by Christopher MacQuarrie and centered on Reacher as he gets 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.

Cruise is currently working on his latest crime pic, Mena, with Edge Of Tomorrow helmer director Doug Liman, and is also planning the next installment of the Mission: Impossible saga proceeding this year's successful run of MacQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation.

Stay tuned!
