Cruise, who would reprise his role as a former military police officer, and the companies are looking for writers to tackle the script. Christopher McQuarrie wrote and directed the first one but now is focused on Mission: Impossible 5.

Never Go Back, published in September, has critics calling it one of the best of the 18-book (so far) series. The book sees Reacher on a cross-country run after facing trumped-up charges, a woman claiming he fathered her child and a female commanding officer.

While the first Reacher film made only $80 million domestically, the worldwide total was $218 million. The movie cost around $60 million to produce.
