The anticipatory rush of Jack Reacher adrenaline continues to build with this awesome interview from author Lee Child in Empire Magazine!  The brilliant mind behind the literary global phenomenon pulls no punches in his passion for the upcoming Tom Cruise screen adaptation of the hit novel, ‘One Shot.”

I had every faith that Tom understood the character,” Child said after the impressive first read-through.  He continues, “And I don’t just mean that he’d read the book, but that he understood the character in the very gut-level way.”

In an exclusive behind-the-scenes revelation, Screenwriter/director Christopher McQuarrie enjoys describing Child’s visit to the set on location in Pittsburgh, PA, “He would hang out for days on end.  We would be shooting in a quarry, it was raining, it was cold, it was rolling into winter, but he was a real soldier.”

Speaking of solider’s, the article includes the unbelievable fact that it took 14 years to get the take-no-prisoners avenging former US Army Military Police Major to screen.  (Think you know Reacher?  Did you know he served 13 years in the fictional military police unit, the 110th Special Investigations Unit?)
