The TomCruise.com team is excited to confirm that Tom Cruise will play the rugged Jack Reacher in the movie ‘One Shot,’ adapted from the 2005 Lee Child novel.
In ‘One Shot,’ Jack Reacher travels to Indiana to investigate the murder of five people gunned down by a sniper. The police easily track and capture the lone gunman, James Barr, but the seemingly airtight case is anything but when Reacher gets involved.
Retired from an elite investigative unit of the military police, Jack Reacher drifts around the country carrying only his passport, his military pension and the clothes on his back. Although Reacher doesn’t go looking for trouble, trouble often finds him and when it does, the ex-MP jumps right in, using his brain as much as his brawn.
Author Lee Child provides some insight into the origin of ‘Jack Reacher.’
To date, 15 Jack Reacher novels have been published and according to Lee Child’s official site, the 16th book in the series, ‘The Affair,’ is scheduled for release on September 27, 2011.
Based on the New York Times Best Selling Jack Reacher series, ‘One Shot’ marks the big screen debut of the popular Lee Child character. According to ‘Variety,’ Christopher McQuarrie will direct and write the screenplay adaption.
