Someone Finally Listened…
In books-to-movies-to-possibly-Netflix-series news, Lee Child, author of the massively popular JACK REACHER series of novels, told the BBC that “ultimately the readers are right” and Tom Cruise is too small to play the lead character.
“So what I’ve decided to do is: there won’t be any more movies with Tom Cruise. Instead we’re going to take it to Netflix or something like that. Long-form streaming television, with a completely new actor. And I want all those readers who were upset about Tom Cruise to help me out – participate in choosing the right actor for the TV series. We’re rebooting and starting over and we’re going to try and find the perfect guy.”
Suppose something can be said for persistence of a consumer base! I, for one, can’t wait to see how this all plays out!!
