Amazon Studios have found their Jack Reacher. Titans actor Alan Ritchson will star in the titular role for the streaming services new series.
Based on author Lee Child’s best selling books, the first season of the drama will follow the first Reacher novel, The Killing Floor.
Jack Reacher is an ex-military police officer, who drifts around America with an eye for justice. Reacher is described as being 6’5″, weighing between 210–250 pounds, with a thick neck and hands the size of dinner plates. And Ritchson fits the physical description perfectly, standing in at 6’4″ and built like a brick shithouse.
Ritchson’s casting may please fans who complained about Tom Cruise not baring any resemblance when he played Reacher in Paramount’s big screen adaptation. Despite being a short arse, I thought Cruise was great and would have happily sat through many more sequels.
Nick Santora (Scorpion) will write and serve as showrunner, the series will be executive produced by Child’s, Don Granger, Scott Sullivan and Christopher McQuarrie.
