Tom CruiseAs previously lamented, Tom Cruise will officially take on the role of Jack Reacher in the adaptation of Lee Child’s novel, One Shot. Going against odds, Cruise will play a 6-foot-5 renegade soldier so averse to consistency that he compulsively disposes of articles of clothing after a single use.

Writing the script and directing the project is Christopher McQuarrie, most notable for Valkyrie, in which he and Cruise took on Nazi-hunting in a particularly inauthentic manner. Luckily, One Shot won’t call for Cruise to take on a German accent—or to completely dismiss the need for one.
