Tom Cruise obviously appears in the title role for the story in which Reacher returns to the headquarters of his old Army unit, only to find he’s been accused of a sixteen-year-old murder. Knepper will play General Harkness, a retired general-turned-CEO of a private military contractor firm. A man of power and authority who thinks he’s a hero and is unafraid to do what’s necessary.
Cobie Smulders, Robert Catrini, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Austin Hebert co-star. Zwick, Richard Wenk and Marshall Herskovitz co-wrote the script for the follow-up which hits cinemas October 16th.
