Paramount Pits Tom Cruise's 'Jack Reacher' As The Next James Bond

Is Paramount starting to worry over the potential success of its impending adaptation of Lee Child’s “Jack Reacher”?

It released a mini-featurette for the December 21 wide release comparing the former U.S. military officer to the likes of franchise greats James Bond and Jason Bourne.
