Have you read Jack Carr’s bestselling novel The Terminal List? If so, you’re probably super excited for the Amazon adaptation. And if you haven’t, and you’re a fan of Jason Bourne type books/movies, let me tell you, this one’s probably right up your alley. Though a part of us is, indeed, side eying some of the casting choices, that’s neither here nor there. These type of adaptations are usually super popular, and some of the people involved are actors we love and will follow anywhere.
If you’re not familiar with the source material, here’s the book synopsis:
A Navy SEAL has nothing left to live for and everything to kill for after he discovers that the American government is behind the deaths of his team in this ripped-from-the-headlines political thriller.
On his last combat deployment, Lieutenant Commander James Reece’s entire team was killed in a catastrophic ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government.
Now, with no family and free from the military’s command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he’s learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward avenging the deaths of his family and teammates. With breathless pacing and relentless suspense, Reece ruthlessly targets his enemies in the upper echelons of power without regard for the laws of combat or the rule of law.
The adaptation has announced that Arlo Mertz will be a series regular, while Christina Vidal Mitchell and Jared Shaw will appear in recurring roles. They join Chris Pratt, Riley Keough, Constance Wu, Taylor Kitsch and Jeanne Tripplehorn, who had already been confirmed. The book is the first in a series of four.
