Well this comes as slightly surprising news but apparently there will be no sequel to Jack Reacher anytime soon.

The Hollywood numbers game has come into play as usual, having taken roughly $150 million in worldwide ticket sales so far, it needs to take that amount again for a sequel to be deemed worthy.

I really liked seeing Jack Reacher on the big screen, you can read my review here if you like, and I was thoroughly looking to seeing more outings from this character. With 17 novels having being published so far, Reacher was ripe for the sequel treatment.

With no sequel on the horizon now I’ll have to make a trip to Waterstone’s I guess.
