The film adaptation of Lee Child’s One Shot, starring Tom Cruise as the mountain-of-a-man Jack Reacher, a perpetually on-the-road rogue agent who sets out to prove his innocence in a violent murder, has gotten itself a villain. And that villain goes by the name of Werner Herzog.
Now, you may be thinking, “Werner Herzog? What in tarnation is so great about Werner Herzog?” Oh, you mean the the man who got shot in the stomach during an interview for Grizzly Man and insisted that he was well enough to keep talking about his awesome movie? Or, are you perhaps referring to the man who pulled Joaquin Phoenix from an overturned car after a crash, potentially saving the man’s life? THAT WERNER HERZOG?
Yes. That. Werner. Herzog.
