Paramount Sets Release Date for Tom Cruise’s ‘Jack Reacher 2’.

Paramount Pictures will release “Jack Reacher 2” on Oct. 1, 2016, the studio announced.

The film stars Tom Cruise in the title role, a former military cop who wanders the country righting wrongs. Cobie Smulders has been in talks to play the female lead in the sequel.

Ed Zwick is set to direct from a script by Richard Wenk that Zwick recently rewrote with longtime collaborator Marshall Herskovitz.

Christopher McQuarrie directed the first “Jack Reacher” movie, which grossed $218 million worldwide. The sequel will be based on author Lee Child‘s “Never Go Back,” in which Reacher travels to the headquarters of the U.S. Army Military Police Corps and finds his former commanding officer has been arrested.
