Starring Cobie Smulders and Tom Cruise, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is set to bring the beloved character back to the big screen once more later this year. Unlike the 2012 Cruise-led film though, which was directed by his frequent collaborator Christopher McQuarrie, the new film is set to be directed by Edward Zwick from a screenplay by Richard Wenk, Marshall Herskovitz, and Zwick himself.

Today as well, Paramount and Skydance have revealed two new photos from the upcoming sequel (via People), which feature new looks at Smulders and Cruise against the film’s New Orleans backdrop, and one of Cruise’s Reacher in a seemingly unfortunate position with the police.

Check out the photos for yourself below:

Despite a somewhat nonchalant response to the first 2012 film, with a new director at the helm and different writers as well, it’ll be interesting to see how well Never Go Back fares compared to its predecessor. With McQuarrie currently at work on Mission: Impossible 6 right now as well, a franchise with a significantly brighter future ahead of itself than Reacher, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that he was unable to return for the sequel. Nonetheless, with a new cast of supporting players, director, and creative team behind the scenes, who knows? Maybe Jack Reacher: Never Go Back will end up being one of the sleeper hits of the Fall.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is set to hit theatres on October 21st.
