The writer has revealed the character will be recast for an upcoming TV drama after Cruise played Reacher in two movies, 2012's Jack Reacher and 2016's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Lee Child is now saying the Tom Cruise movie franchise is over.

So now, apparently, the franchise is going to television with a new actor. "And Cruise, for all his talent, didn't have that physicality", he continued. Reacher is described as 6'5 and blonde in Child's best-selling novels, which is nearly a foot taller than Cruise's modest 5'7 (5'8 on red carpets with the right shoes). Cruise, on the other hand, stands at five foot seven inches.

"Cruise, for all his talent, didn't have that physicality", Child told BBC Radio. As well as replacing the Cruiser in the lead role, Child - real name Jim Grant - said that a deal had been signed for a television series.
