Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher in One Shot
He'll next be seen reprising his role of Ethan Hunt in the fourth instalment to the Mission: Impossible franchise and now it's official that Tom Cruise has signed on to play Jack Reacher in One Shot.
Adapted from the Lee Child's series of books, Cruise will play the tough guy, who in the books is 6'5" and speaking of the casting Lee Childs endorsed the casting of Cruise by saying "Reacher's size in the books is a metaphor for an unstoppable force, which Cruise portrays in his own way."
Christopher McQuarrie who directed The Way Of The Gun and famously wrote The Usual Suspects and Valkyrie is on directing duties and would mark a significant new stage in Cruise' illustrious career.
One Shot is one of 15 Jack Reacher novels, so if Cruise pulls it off there could be potential for the start of a franchise.
