Amazon Prime is developing a new TV series centred on fictional ex-military cop Jack Reacher.
But don't get your hopes up about Tom Cruise – who brought him to life in two movies – reprising the role for the small screen, as he isn't involved.
Amazon boss Jennifer Salke revealed news of the project during the streaming platform's section of the Television Critics Association press tour this week, as she confirmed that the show's first season will be based on the 1997 novel The Killing Floor.
"The Jack Reacher book series is a global phenomenon with one of entertainment's most well-known heroes, and a perfect fit for Amazon Studios' slate of bold, character-driven series," Salke said in a statement.
"We look forward to expanding the Jack Reacher universe and bringing more thrilling action to our Amazon Prime Video audience."
"Lee Child has created an incredible character and world," Santora added. "It will be the goal of every writer, producer, actor, executive and crew member to capture the essence of Mr Child's books – and luckily Lee has been there, and will continue to be there, to help guide us along the way in this series. He is the pulse of Reacher."
Child is equally as excited, claiming that "Reacher is in the perfect hands" with the folks over at Amazon.
"It's been great so far but really, the fun starts here," he said.
