He's a really, really nice guy.

"The idea is that when Reacher walks into a room, you're all a little nervous just for that first minute", he continued.

Child admits he had a great time working with Cruise but now accepts the movie star wasn't a big enough presence to win over fans of his books.

"Jack Reacher" is getting a reboot on the small screen, and Tom Cruise will not be in it because the creator thinks he does not measure up, literally. "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".

"Indeed, the Jack Reacher novels have always maintained that the ex-military policeman is a hulking figure, standing at 6'5", with large muscles and hands.

"So what I've chose to do is - there won't be any more movies with Tom Cruise".

Child has decided there will be no more Jack Reacher movies and now he is planning to take the franchise to Netflix or another streaming site. With that in mind, he will not be recruited for a reboot of the series that will come in television series form.

Grisham, who saw Cruise portray the lead character in a film adaptation of his breakthrough novel The Firm, said: "I bet the new Jack Reacher will be a bit taller?" Jack Reacher: Never Go Back grossed $162m (£124m) and received mixed reviews.

'We're rebooting and starting over, and we're going to try to find the ideal guy'.

The first Jack Reacher film, directed and adapted by Christopher McQuarrie, debuted in 2012. Reacher is described as 6'5 and blonde in Child's best-selling novels, which is nearly a foot taller than Cruise's modest 5'7 (5'8 on red carpets with the right shoes).
