Based on Lee Childs' best-selling novels, the action drama follows the titular Jack Reacher, "a military veteran who lives a nomadic life as a freelance investigator and problem solver".
Alan Ritchson now stars as Hawk, aka Hank Hall, on DC's Titans. It will be written and executive produced by Nick Santora, who previously worked on the CBS series Scorpion and the recent Quibi shows Most Dangerous Game and The Fugitive. Marcy Ross also serves as an executive producer. In addition, Lee Child will also serve as an executive producer on the series adaptation. Carolyn Harris oversees the series for Skydance.

"Cruise is reportedly 5'7".More news: Chadwick Boseman’s hometown is planning to build a memorial
