Jack Reacher 2 Dated, Linklater’s Next Titled

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have locked down an October 21st 2016 release date for the upcoming sequel to 2012’s “Jack Reacher,” the adaptation of the novel “One Shot” from Lee Child’s popular Jack Reacher book series.

Ed Zwick is directing the Tom Cruise-led sequel which begins shooting in November and is based on the novel “Never Go Back”. Paramount balked on the idea of a sequel initially, but as people have discovered the film in ancillary markets it has become a quite profitable little movie for them.

At the same time, Paramount has also confirmed that the title of Richard Linklater’s next film is set to be “Everybody Wants Some” and has confirmed that it’s still set for an April 15th 2016 release date.
