Titans’ Alan Ritchson leaves his Hawk wings behind and steps into the shoes of Jack Reacher in Prime Video’s first trailer for Reacher.
According to a press release from Amazon Studios, Reacher is based on the novels by Lee Child that follow “Jack Reacher, a veteran military police investigator who has just recently entered civilian life.”
The official description continues, “Reacher is a drifter, carrying no phone and the barest of essentials as he travels the country and explores the nation he once served. When Reacher arrives in the small town of Margrave, Georgia, he finds a community grappling with its first homicide in 20 years.”
It goes on, “The cops immediately arrest him and eyewitnesses claim to place Reacher at the scene of the crime. While he works to prove his innocence, a deep-seated conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will require Reacher’s keen mind and hard-hitting fists to deal with.”
“One thing above all is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall,” the description concludes.
The first season of the Prime Video series is based on Child’s first Jack Reacher novel Killing Floor.
The series is adapted to television by writer Nick Santora whose writing credits include Punisher: War Zone, Prison Break, and The Fugitive. Not only is Santora writing on the show, but he’s also the showrunner and executive producer.
Joining Ritchson is iZombie’s Malcom Goodwin as Oscar Finlay, Dare Me’s Willa Fitzgerald as Roscoe Conklin, Chris Webster as KJ, Hugh Thompson as Baker, Maria Sten as Frances Neagley, Harvey Guillén as Jasper, and Kristin Kreuk as Charlie.
Other cast members include Currie Graham as Kliner Sr., Marc Bendavid as Hubble, Willie C. Carpenter as Mosley, Maxwell Jenkins as Young Reacher, and Bruce McGill as Mayor Teale.
Child is also an executive producer on the series alongside Don Granger, and Scott Sullivan. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Bill Bost are producing for Skydance.
The first season will be eight episodes long with all eight episodes debuting on Prime Video on Friday, February 4, 2022.
