The project is based on “Never Go Back,” published in September as Child’s 18th book in the series, in which Reacher heads to the Virginia headquarters of his old military unit and is arrested for a crime he doesn’t remember committing 16 years earlier.
The studio is seeking a writer to adapt “Never Go Back” and has not selected a director. Christopher McQuarrie directed “Jack Reacher” from his own script with Cruise, Paula Wagner, Gary Levinsohn and Dana Goldberg producing.
“Jack Reacher,” released last Dec. 21, grossed $216 million worldwide.
