After the dust settled from what is being reported as a "competitive situation" among a number of streaming and premium cable suitors, Amazon has secured the rights to bring Lee Child's bestselling Jack Reacher book series from page to screen.

"His knuckles were nearly touching the ground," wrote Lee Child of his now-famous protagonist Jack Reacher in the 2012 book A Wanted Man.
