"Cruise, for all his talent, didn’t have that physicality," said author, Lee Child. "So what I’ve decided to do is – there won’t be any more movies with Tom Cruise. Instead we’re going to take it to Netflix or something like that. Long form streaming television, with a completely new actor. And I want all those readers who were upset about Tom Cruise to help me out – participate in choosing the right actor for the TV series. We’re rebooting and starting over and we’re going to try and find the perfect guy."
In fact it's Amazon not Netflix who won the rights in a bidding war, along with Skydance and Paramount Television. Together they are also responsible for the Jack Ryan show.
So, who is the perfect Jack Ryan?
Jeffrey Dean Morgan?
