Jack Reacher Sequel Gets Its Villain

Patrick Heusinger (“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” “Castle,” “Revolution”) is in talks to play the villain in the upcoming “Jack Reacher” sequel at Paramount Pictures.

Ed Zwick directs the film from a script he adapted based on Lee Child’s book “Never Go Back”. In the story, Reacher returns to his old military base in Virginia where the female commanding officer has been arrested.

He has also found himself being charged with assault and illegitimately fathering a child, though can’t recall doing either.

Tom Cruise returns in the title role with Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge also in various stages of talks to join the cast. Filming is slated to begin this Fall.
