Jack Reacher 2 gets an official title as production begins with Tom Cruise

Production has begun on the sequel to 2012 action film, Jack Reacher and it’s got a shiny new title and everything. From now on, we can officially refer to the film as Jack Reacher: Never Go Back - the same title as the Lee Child novel the story's lifted from.

The movie will see Tom Cruise’s badass hero return to his old army base to reconnect with a past love, only to find that she's been arrested. Scrapping his dinner plans, Reacher decides to investigate and finds himself falling down a rabbit hole of crime and deception.

A newly-released cast list confirms that Cruise will be joined by Cobie Smulders, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Danika Yorash and Austin Hebert, while also reuniting with his Last Samurai director Ed Zwick. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back will open in the UK and US on October 21 2016.
