    Not's so much a casting choice. Tom Cruise is the producer, having bought the film rights, so it's very much his ball.



    I don't see any problem making new Bond films with modern plots and why not a female and/or black 007, but there's no reason to pretend it's the original James Bond character.
    I canít think of any examples of adaptations Iíve disagreed with what they did. Maybe the female Ghostbusters, they butchered it and it was god awful. They should have just made a new film in that same universe with their own new unique characters and stood or fell on its own merit. Like theyíre doing with the upcoming Ghostbusters. However I canít say that Iíd give it a second thought if Idris Elba, for example, simply took over from Daniel Craig playing the exact same character and same backstory as the Daniel Craig films, even if Idris isnít close to the character in the book,

    I don't think John Hannah as Rebus worked.

    I think this is happening now - a TV adaptation for Amazon with a new cast
    Thatís right, theyíve done 2 seasons so far with a 3rd on the way. I think itís meant to be more of a prequel to the films. Itís a really good show.

    United we stand here....

    Are you sure? They announced it was planned in July last year. Have the series been released?

    I love the Reacher books, and was massively sceptical about the films with Tom Cruise, but I think heís pretty good. He doesnít fit the description but it still kind of works.
    I agree, the performance of Tom Cruise is great. I have read all the Reacher books and his physical presence is a part of the storyline in every book.

    on the contrary I think he's excellent. I don't like stott as rebus. I absolutely love the books too.

    Rebus has decades of smoking and drinking under his belt. Hannah doesn't look like that man.

    Chatting to Ian Rankin once and he said he always felt Brian Cox would have been perfect to play Rebus......
