VIDEO INTERVIEW: Alan Ritchson & Malcolm Goodwin on Amazon Original “Reacher”

This Friday sees the debut of the brand-new Amazon Original series, “Reacher,” starring Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, “Titans,” “Blood Drive”) and based on the novels by British author Lee Child.

Written for television by Emmy-nominated writer Nick Santora (“Prison Break,” “Breakout Kings”), and also starring Malcolm Goodwin (“iZombie,” “Breakout Kings”), Willa Fitzgerald (“The Fall of the House of the Usher,” “Scream”), Chris Webster (“Most Dangerous Game”), Maria Sten (“Swamp Thing”), Harvey Guillén (“What We Do in the Shadows”), Kristin Kreuk (“Smallville”), Willie C. Carpenter (“Devious Maids”), and Bruce McGill (Cliffhanger, The Last Boy Scout), the first season is based on Lee Child’s first Jack Reacher novel “Killing Floor”, following Jack Reacher, a veteran military police investigator who has just recently entered civilian life.

Reacher is a drifter, with no cell phone and refuses to carry anything but basic essentials as he travels the country and explores the nation he once served. On arriving in the small town of Margrave, Georgia, he finds a community grappling with its first homicide in 20 years. The cops arrest him on sight and eyewitnesses claim to place Reacher at the scene of the crime. While he works to prove his innocence, a deep-seated conspiracy begins to emerge, one that will require Reacher’s keen mind and hard-hitting fists to deal with.

But one thing above all is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to use as their scapegoat.

In anticipation of all eight episodes premiering exclusively on Prime Video on Friday, February 4, 2022 in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide, CinemaChords sat down with Ritchson and Goodwin to discuss adapting the first novel into a series format, and how they approached balancing their more jovial buddy-cop scenes with the unflinching dark vision the writers brought to the show.
