The Hollywood Reporter is reporting Tom Cruise is interested in playing Jack Reacher, the main character in the Lee Child novels. This isn’t being greeted well by fans. This is where it will be interesting to see how Paramount reads these posts. Fledgling projects with no “names” attatched to them are being told to show that “insert name” can carry a project by their presence on social media sites. So what happens whe “the name” draws criticism across the board? It will be interesting to see IMO. Meanwhile I visited the Facebook Lee Child page and commented as well as responded to The Hollywood Reporter’s FB article and Twitter post on this. I will post on leechild.com forum when I resolve my login issue 🙂 but the news is not being met with positive comments there either!
I am hoping Ben being cast in Bad Kids Go To Hell may influence the producers of other projects with which he is associated .
