Couple Days Off

For those of you that don’t know, I’m entering my final year of grad school and the semester has begun. This fall I’m taking my last two classes and in the spring I’m working on my Master’s Project. To maintain my sanity, I’ll be posting less frequently to my blog, maybe once a week or once every other week. But there’s no need to worry because I’ve got great stuff planned for you this fall, including more interviews with best-selling authors and accomplished musicians, as well as my thoughts on a variety of books, albums and concerts. I plan on ending the year on a high note, so thanks for sticking along for the ride. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy a couple days off.

Tom Cruise Returns As Jack Reacher

20120722-205502.jpgI woke up to great news this morning – the 2012 film, Jack Reacher, which was based on Lee Child’s bestselling novel, One Shot, and starred Tom Cruise in the title role, is getting a sequel. It was just announced that Child’s newest international bestseller, Never Go Back, will be adapted for the film and Tom Cruise is returning as Jack Reacher. As of right now, Cruise and company are trying to get the original film’s Director, Christopher McQuarrie, back at the helm for the sequel, but he has yet to confirm whether or not he’ll be part of the project.

To me, this is excellent news. I know many obstinate fans of the novels will continue to lambaste Cruise for being Jack Reacher because he physically doesn’t “measure up.” But people need to get over this fact because Tom Cruise was excellent in the first film and, whether they like it or not, a sequel is being made. If it’s anything like its predecessor, we’re in for a real treat.
