Now, six years after the last Jack Reacher movie, fans are wondering if there will ever be another. The answer is complicated. On the one hand, Child has continued to write new Jack Reacher novels, with The Sentinel being published just last year. So, there is certainly material for another movie adaptation. On the other hand, it seems unlikely that Tom Cruise will return to the role. The actor is now 56 years old, and the character of Jack Reacher is written as being in his early 40s.
It’s possible that another actor could take over the role, but it’s also possible that the movie franchise has simply run its course. So, it’s possible that fans will see more of Jack Reacher, but it might not be in the form of a movie starring Tom Cruise. The character’s adventures will continue, either on the big screen or the small screen.
