If it was Tom Cruise's portrayal of Jack Reacher that did the rounds a few years back, then it's Alan Ritchson's turn to make the character his own. The 'Titans' star is all set to play the iconic character based on Lee Child’s first Jack Reacher novel, 'Killing Floor' and the eight-episode series is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video later this month. The series is executive produced and developed by Nick Santora ('Prison Break') and safe to say, the trailer packs quite a punch.
