Re: Jack Reacher yes,no, maybe so

So, it seems that there were too many 'No' answers, or at least insufficient 'yes' ones to turn Reacher into a franchise. Aragorn's prediction about the series being rebooted with Tyler Perry may not have been too far off the mark!

Implications here for Tom's star power or was this just the wrong vehicle for him? Might this have Reached (hoho) a wider audience with someone more suited to the character from the book or does the fact that a megastar like Cruise couldn't guarantee success just go to prove that literary success doesn't always mean filmic success (we're looking at you Jack Ryan)? And is there less and less room for old-fashioned mid-range thrillers, that only Denzil seems to make any more?
