All We Know About ‘Reacher’
Jack Reacher, a former U.S. Army military-veteran policeman, wanders across the country until he gets arrested by the police. He gets entangled in a criminal conspiracy after getting arrested for a crime he didn't commit while visiting the small town of Margrave, Georgia.
The upcoming Amazon Original Series features former Blood Drive star, Alan Ritchson. Compared to Tom Cruise’s version of the 2012 and 2016 Jack Reacher movies, Ritchson’s portrayal is much more anticipated as the buff version of ‘Reacher’ is everything Tom Cruise’s version wasn’t.
As it is originally based on Lee Child’s book, the previous Jack Reacher movies drew criticisms over Tom Cruise being casted in not only one, but two movies. Fans of the novels pointed out that Cruise’s body was not built to play as Reacher. Whereas Alan Ritchson, who previously starred as Aquaman in Smallville and Hawk in Titans, definitely fit the Jack Reacher description.
