Tom Cruise has been dropped from the Jack Reacher franchise.
Cruise has been criticised by fans for quite some time because they could not get over the fact that he did not fit the physical profile of Jack Reacher in the books.
The character is supposed to be a big ugly guy and Cruise is none of those things. The author of the series, Lee Child has taken this feedback on board and is instead going to turn it into a TV series with a completely different actor.
“So we’re kind of rebooting it with the hope that we get something closer to what the readers really want,” he said.
Child has just released his 23rd book in the series, which follows the exploits of the former US Army Major, who now investigates suspicious cases and dishes out vigilante justice.
