Jack Reacher Brought Up To Size!
This isn’t a rant, more of a pat myself on the back post. Nice to see the Beeb confirming my thoughts here.
“Reacher is described as 6ft 5in tall with hands the size of dinner plates. Cruise is 5ft 7in.” reported via the BBC yesterday, Lee Child admitted Cruise lacked the physicality…. You don’t say?
So instead of this bringing someone down to size, it’s good that it’s been realised Reacher needs bringing up to size!
Anyway, as much as I adore reading, I’ve just gotten into listening to books. Great for keeping me entertained while travelling or even to listen to in the background while doing other things.

So if like me you like to keep entertained and not need to venture out to the cinema or wherever, then Audible is one option for sure.
Going back to Jack Reacher, instad of rolling out more movies, the next phase is more of a tv series. This could actually be a great move, when you think they did this with the Jack Ryan character, from the writer Tom Clancy.
You’ve probably seen the films such as Hunt For Red October, Patriot Games etc. : Alec Baldwin; Harrison Ford; Ben Affleck are amongst the people to play the leading role in these movies, the next way forward was a tv series. John Krasinski playing Ryan this time around, which I found a decent Amazon Prime viewing opportunity. I’m actually looking forward to series 2 of Jack Ryan!
Will Reacher make a great tv spin off? Yes in all honesty the potential is there without a doubt. Naturally this depends on who is cast as the lead role ( hopefully they’ll be over 6ft tall ) and who directs this. With Krasinski being the right sort of height, he could be a potential Reacher. Chris Hemsworth is another actor who fits the bill. Depending on budget a third option could be Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who has the build and presence.
