That's a cool pic! ;))
Not a rarity for a Jack Reacher book.
I did finish Personal, by the way - and I really loved it! I enjoyed it the most of his recent ones. My very favorite for best writing, thrills, suspense, and excitement is Gone Tomorrow ... but I like Personal probably next, certainly more than the last 4. Keep in mind I enjoyed the last 4. I enjoy every Reacher book. This is a writer that I always look forward to. I hope more of you get to read Personal soon.
Hmm... Could Mads be researching for a role? :-?
There is no doubt that Child can write. I just find myself wishing he'd write something else.
The fact that he sells like hot cakes is a solid testimony to both the enduring popularity of the Yojimbo story and the fact that people love to buy the familiar.
What I find particularly bizarre is Reacher's popularity amongst women. I would have thought that this cardboard character with his perpensity to dish out indiscriminate, bone crunching violence, would be the antithesis of what most women want in their literarary hero.
As for the casting of Cruise, if this leadend lump has to be brought to the multi-plexus, perhaps Liam Neilson would have been a more appropriate choice. It certainly would be a step up from his ridiculous 'Taken' character and would make the action scenes marginally more believable than the risible fake violence dispensed by Hollywood's favourite vertically challenged, sofa jumping, scientologist.
I wouldn't mind Lee Child writing different books with other characters, but I'm happy with the way this particular series is going.
Trust me, you don't want to see the film. Tom Cruise or no Tom Cruise, that film couldn't have been saved no matter what.
You should as Cruise is involved the movie is by no means bad or shabby, he just is not Reacher IMHO. But ignoring that you have a decent enough actioner that is well enough filmed.
Raymond Cruz a.k.a Tuco from Breaking Bad.
I like the The 70's/90's vibe. Feels more like a detective movie.
I whas already looking forward to what the directer and composer of this movie will make from Mi5, but iam happy Mi5 hired the first editor of X-men first class and writer of Iron Man 3. Because pacing is very low and motivation/conclussion is very weak. Like the first Mission Impossible movie, a part of the plot is made to dificult. I have respect that there take there time and doing much better with it then for example Nolan, stil i think also 130 minutes is to long. 110 have been nice.
As alternate directers for Jack Reacher 2 i must think about Tim Burton, Todd Phillips and David O. Russell. Danny Elfman as composer.
The article is no longer available :/
Apparently the sequel will start filming later this year so I think that we should expect some director and casting news soon..
The only trouble is I have so many books in my to-read pile (one of which is another JR book) that I don't know when I'll get around to reading the rest of Reacher!
'Make Me' cover revealed.
In that case can he do a 007 between Reachers?
Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover.
He expects to find a lonely tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat ... but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing private investigator, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people.
Reacher’s one-day stopover turns into an open-ended stay…Fasten your seatbelt for another nailbiting ride from the kick ass master of the thriller genre!
