“When I picture Reacher, let’s say you’re in a bar or restaurant, the door opens, he steps in, and the temperature in the room drops by a degree, because people think, ‘What the hell is this?'” says creator and executive producer Lee Child to Entertainment Weekly.
Regarding Reacher’s fighting style, Ritchson stated, “I felt intimidated learning the fight choreography. This fighting style, I was on my heels, wondering if I could pull it off. It’s so precise… We rebuilt me as a fighter. Some of the fights that we spent a month and a half learning are just three minutes on screen, but the fans deserve to see somebody move the way that a killing machine like him can.”
Reacher premieres on Amazon Prime Video February 4, 2022.
