Tom Cruise News

Tom Cruise is in post production on his next Jack Reacher movie NEVER GO BACK, based on the novel by Lee Child (whom I once interviewed.) The audiobook is narrated by Dick Hill, a dramatic voice actor who does most of Child’s books. What is your fav Cruise movie? If you asked me, there are several scifi like Minority Report, War of the Worlds, (also on audio) plus MI3, etc., but have to say Collateral simply because it was so unusual, visual, symbolic, and with a great script and stunning direction by Michael Mann. Few movies have ever nailed our age so well, and with such pathos. Cruise and Jamie Foxx both deserved Oscars. (I am completing a book of stories based on this movie.) Back to Audiobook: Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, DC: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner,  who so far has been just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about. When threatened, you can run or fight and Reacher fights, aiming to find Turner and clear his name, barely a step ahead of the Army, the FBI, the DC Metro police, and four unidentified thugs.
