Most of the time, when an author signs a movie deal, he does not have any say in the movie. This doesn't mean he can't come out publicly and criticize the movie.

Money talks, and big money talks very loudly.

( But I still can't really see how he could be OK with this staggering mis-cast.)

Umm..... is Lee Childs by any chance .... of a religious bent by any chance ?

Just wondered......

Wouldn't surprise me if there were clauses in the contract about not bad mouthing the movie.

I saw him interviewed about it recently. Reading between the lines, he more or less said that he had no choice in the selection, and that he was pleased a name had been chosen for the role. I could detect in his response that he wasn't overly happy about it, though.

That probably makes more sense. I couldn't understand him being 'thrilled' with the choice of Cruise for his Reacher character.

When I watched the trailer, in the shot where they are standing around, I thought, wow, they really beefed up Cruise cause he looked so tall and big. Haha. That was the OTHER guy facing Cruise.

It seems that this isn't a TC appreciation thread and the main bitch is his size not his acting skills, seeing what can be achieved with smoke and mirrors in movies nowadays I will be curious to see the end result if TC is cast as Reacher.

He *is* cast as Reacher; read back a few messages (perhaps even a page or so) and there is a link to the trailer. The movie is about to be released.

Well, not exactly "about to be released", it's supposed to be released in December 21st, still 5 months to go.

Is that in order to give him time to grow into the part?

They should have done what they did with Alan Ladd, and get him to stand on wooden boxes, or dig trenches for his co-stars, so that he looked taller on film.

We know what can be achieved with smoke and mirrors but from the trailer it looks like they didn't even try (or they went for the opposite effect). Watch the trailer:


There is this one scene at 1:18 where he is about to hit a guy over the head. The guy is on his knees and his head reaches TC's shoulder.

Guy named Recluse. If you didn't know him, then nevermind. If you did -- or didn't but you want to chat with a guy with weird humor -- then click on my link. It isn't obvious, but it's clickable.
