Tom Cruise confirmed to play Jack Reacher in 'One Shot'

According to Hitfix:

Tom Cruise to play ex-cop-turned-drifter-vigilante Jack Reacher in "One Shot," based on the best-selling novel series by Lee Child (the pen name of Jim Grant), according to

In "One Shot," Reacher is on the tail of an elusive sniper, only to find out there's more than meets the eyes once the gunman is captured.

The film will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie (The "Usual Suspects" scribe who also wrote the Cruise film "Valkyrie" a few years back).

Don Granger and Cruise will produce for Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions. "One Shot" is expected to shoot in Pittsburgh in the fall.

Cruise is currently shooting the musical "Rock of Ages," and also recently signed on to star in the Joseph Kosinski-directed sci-fi film "Oblivion" at Universal.

He'll next be seen in "Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol."


  1. Oh God, not another Tom Cruise movie. I don't understand how he continues to get movies which make less than their budgets at the box office

  2. The only thing I think of when Cruise is on screen is him jumping up and down on Oprah's couch and his acknowlegement to the world that he is a great psychiatrist of whom Brooke Shields should discuss her evil anti-depressant medication. He should wear a hat that says SCIENTOLOGY ROCKS in all his movies.

    What a nutbag...
