Diane Capri Books Into Movies
In 2009 at a cocktail party in New York, Diane Capri and Lee Child got into a discussion about where the Jack Reacher a popular character created by Lee Child could be. The lack of an answer to where Reacher was inspired Diane to write a series of novels answering the inquiry with the blessing of Lee. In her first novel Don’t Know Jack, Diane introduced FBI special agents Carlos Gasper and Kim Otto. Jack Reacher was made into a film in 2011 with Tom Cruise being the main actor. The movie was a huge success. Today, all Jack Reacher books are optioned for filming with the 2nd movie released in 2016. Although the Reacher books are all by Lee Child, we felt it was worth nothing.
