Lee Child Talks Next Jack Reacher Film

16 September 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Author Lee Child confirms that a sequel to the 2012 film adaptation of his Jack Reacher novel series is in the works, though the first film's director Christopher McQuarrie will probably not be returning.

While the tenth book "One-Shot" was the basis of "Jack Reacher," the upcoming follow-up will be based on the eighteenth novel "Never Go Back". Child tells Empire that particular book was chosen because of both the young and older female lead characters which could increase the film's appeal:

"Any of these books, you look at them and say 'we could do that', but then you look at it and go, 'well, how are we going to do it? They're all very difficult.' [The character Samantha Dayton] convinced them about which book to make for the next movie. It's almost a three-hander in terms of audience appeal - you've got Reacher, you've got the woman sidekick (Major Susan Turner), and then »

Author Lee Child Describes Early Story Details For Jack Reacher Sequel

16 September 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Jack Reacher snuck into cinemas back in 2012, there was one audience preconception that Christopher McQuarrie’s big screen adaptation simply couldn’t shake: at 5ft 7in, how could Tom Cruise possibly embody a former military major that stands — in the novels, at least — at 6ft 5in tall? Well, low and behold the actor played the part with conviction and helped turn the once humble project into a bona fide action hit.

Fast forward two years and Paramount Pictures has issued the green light for a direct sequel, with Cruise set to return in the titular role. However, with Christopher McQuarrie departing to direct the next chapter in the Mission: Impossible franchise, ardent fans are wondering exactly who will step in to to direct the imminent sequel.

And though he doesn’t explicitly answer that question in particular, author Lee Child spoke to Empire recently and revealed some early details regarding the follow-up, »

‘Jack Reacher’ Author Says the Movie Sequel Will Have a New Director

16 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Tom Cruise and Oscar-winning writer/director Christopher McQuarrie’s previous collaborations include the action/thriller Jack Reacher, and they are currently working together on Mission: Impossible 5 (which started filming last month). However, according to author Lee Child – creator of the Reacher character – post-production on the fifth Mission: Impossible movie will prevent McQuarrie from being able to direct the Jack Reacher sequel.

Jack Reacher 2, as we’ll call it for now, is going to be based on Child’s novel “Never Go Back”, which is the eighteenth Reacher book published by the author. The story follows Reacher (with Cruise reprising the role in the movie sequel) as he travels to Virginia to meet Major Susan ...

Tom Cruise Has Already Started Filming 'Mission: Impossible 5' (Photo)

12 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems appropriate that spy actioner "Mission: Impossible 5" started filming on the sly earlier this week. Director Christopher McQuarrie tweeted a photo of Jeremy Renner, Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames on the set of "M:I5" with the caption "The team is back," and his use of the hashtag #MI5diary leads us to believe this won't be the last Bts pic we'll see from McQuarrie. (Jeremy Renner posted an almost identical photo on his Facebook page, which is cool and all, but it's not quite as epic as Vin Diesel's video of dancing alone to Beyoncé.)

At one point, right around 2011's "Ghost Protocol," it seemed entirely possible that Renner could take over the franchise from Cruise. It looks like that's not the case at all, »

Mission: Impossible 5 is bringing back together the whole team. Tom Cruise is set to reprise his role as Ethan Hunt, along with Jeremy Renner as William Brandt, Simon Pegg as Benji Dunn and Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell.

First Behind The Scenes Image From Mission Impossible 5

12 September 2014 12:30 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Following on from the amazing Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is no easy task, but director Christopher McQuarrie (who has already worked with the franchise's star Tom Cruise on Jack Reacher, as well as scripting Edge of Tomorrow) is more than capable of pulling it off. With production moving forward, McQuarrie took some time out to share with Twitter the first image of the movies Imf team, made up of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Simon Pegg, and Ving Rhames. Nothing much is known about the plot, but Sean Harris (Prometheus) has recently joined the project as the movies big bad. Mission Impossible 5 is set for release December 25th 2015. »

18 Years Later, Here's What Tom Cruise And Ving Rhames Look Like On The Mission: Impossible 5 Set

11 September 2014 8:16 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Believe it or not, it was a full 18 years ago that the big screen Mission: Impossible franchise got underway. It was all the way back in 1996 that director Brian De Palma first introduced us Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt and Ving Rhames' Luther Stickell, and the characters have been come back again and again in the years since. And while Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol kind of shortchanged us on the Ethan/Luther relationship, the good news is that problem is going to be repaired in Christopher McQuarrie's upcoming Mission: Impossible 5, as previewed in the special Tweet below.

First Mission: Impossible 5 Cast Images Feature Tom Cruise, Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames

11 September 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just last week I was saying how excited I was more excited for Mission: Impossible 5 than I have been for any other film in the franchise.  All of the elements just add up to it being the first one I'm actually looking forward to as opposed to being something I'd just wait for passively.  Not only did I really like  Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, but I think director Christopher McQuarrie recently showed that he is in fine form with his recent Tom Cruse collaboration, Jack Reacher (not to mention his great script work on Edge of Tomorrow). While last week's report of Sean Harris joining the cast was subsequently confirmed by McQuarrie himself, he doesn't figure into this new photo as it's a shot of the film's team reuniting (as actors, not characters).  So that would be Cruise, Simon PeggJeremy Renner and Ving Rhames.  Hit the jump for »

Christopher McQuarrie Reunites The Team In New Mission: Impossible 5 Set Photo

As you can see, Mission: Impossible 5 director Christopher McQuarrie has assembled the "Impossible Mission Force" for the highly anticipated fifth instalment of the popular franchise which opens on December 25th, 2015. The movie also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Alec Baldwin and Sean Harris. It might be quite some time before we get any official material from the sequel to 2011's superb Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, so for now, this isn't a bad teaser!

'Mission: Impossible 5' Photo Reunites Tom Cruise with His Team

11 September 2014 1:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Mission: Impossible 5 doesn't have a catchy title like Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol just yet, it does have most of that movie's cast returning. And they are now all on set as shooting continues this week. We previously saw Tom Cruise performing his own stunts in a few leaked paparazzi photos and videos, but now director Christopher McQuarrie has shared the first official set photo of the cast.

Tom Cruise once again stars as Ethan Hunt, with Jeremy Renner back as William Brandt, Simon Pegg doing his third turn as Benji Dunn and Ving Rhames as Luther Stickell, who has appeared in all 5 movies (though he went uncredited in the last adventure). Check out their reunion on set:

"Space Battleship Yamato" Film Edges Closer?

9 September 2014 8:17 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Hollywood live-action film adaptation of the hit 1970s anime series "Space Battleship Yamato" (aka. "Star Blazers") has been a long time coming, mostly due to some thorny rights issues regarding the work.

In late 2012, filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie told Dark Horizons that after years of talks, the last few issues were being worked out regarding the rights to the property. At the time he said: "Yes, the longest rights negotiation of planet Earth. I think we're very very close to finally… there's one last piece in the chain that needs to be worked out and when that's done I would immediately be able to start writing that."

It sounds like that has happened as the Sports Nippon newspaper (via Anime News Network) reports that McQuarrie will shoot the project next once he wraps his work on the currently filming "Mission: Impossible 5".

Hollywood's Space Battleship Yamato Movie Is Coming Sooner Than You Think

9 September 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you.ve been wondering what is going on with the long in-development live-action big screen update of the classic anime series Space Battleship Yamato, then today.s news is likely to make you happy. Sort of. The project, which has been kicking around in development since at least 2011, is still inching toward production and Mission: Impossible 5 helmer Christopher McQuarrie is still driving the ship. According to Japanese newspaper Sports Nippon . with helpful translation from the Anime News Network - the Space Battleship Yamato movie has been green-lit and will hit theaters in 2017-2018, if all goes according to plan. The new Space Battleship Yamato will tentatively be rechristened as Star Blazers (in a move guaranteed to annoy otaku around the globe.), but those worried that the film will lose touch with the source material should breathe easy. The project will be overseen by Shoji Nishizaki, son of the »
