Jack Reacher

Towards the end of May, we got word that Paramount Pictures had officially changed the title of Christopher McQuarrie's adaptation of One Shot, an adaptation of Lee Child's novel of the same name starring Tom Cruise, to the title of the author's recurring character Jack Reacher. It made perfect sense after a giant banner was spotted at Cannes merely saying "Tom Cruise is Jack Reacher" with no mention of One Shot at all. Now we have the first official photo from the film, and honestly, it could be from almost any Tom Cruise action thriller since he's just standing in the street. I guess we'll have to wait for a trailer to see real action.

Here's the first look at Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher from EW:

Jack Reacher - First Look

Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) knows the killer is a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right–and soon the slam-dunk case explodes. Christopher McQuarrie (director The Way of the Gun and writer of The Usual Suspects) writers and directs this film which also stars Werner Herzog, Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins. Paramount Pictures is sending the film to theaters on December 21st this year.

    Werner Herzog acts in this film...Werner Herzog...what the...how th...why in the world... I just...weird beyond belief
  • Alexorella
    Considering that Jack Reacher is supposed to be 6'5 and 250 pounds, this is the dumbest casting ever.
    • Rosalee Adams
      only in la la land can they create such fantasy..............I am surprised the author allowed this machete job on his character No wonder Crais will not release Joe Pike and Elvis Cole or Michael Connelly Harry Bosch I can only imagine what casting that would be Oh I know, more fodder for Cruise
    • Johnholmes72
      I imagine you're also mad about Nick Fury being played by an African American?
  • Terrible casting. Author sold out on backing this. I'll rent it, from redbox, for a dollar, maybe. And I've read all of the books and have the new Kindle Short on pre-order - I should be the target audience but I'm completely alienated.
  • Right Guy
    I'm excited for this film, Liam Neeson playing Jack Reacher? Should be awesome.... Oh, it's Tom Cruise? Nevermind.
  • HHHHEEEEELLLLLOOOOO
    it looks like tom cruise
  • Rosalee Adams
    so what did they do about his height?? Jack is considerably taller than Cruise so I assume 5 inch heels The man is not much taller than I am................and was not even as tall as Kidman who remarked later "Now I can wear heels again" UGH, give it a rest Cruise
    • Fatal Error
      I just started reading the Jack Reacher series, and while I'm excited about them being adapted and Cruise playing Reacher, the 10 inch height differential between Cruise and his character is going to be an issue. A big focus in the stories seems to be how physically impressive Reacher is, maybe they'll do the reverse of what Snow White and the Huntsman did and CGI him tall.
    • ugghhh
      REACHER is 6'5". 250 solid muscle. TC is 5'7". I don't get it.
  • na
    OMG He looks like... TOM CRUISE!
  • B
    Saw a test screening. It's abysmal.
  • JM
    Tom Cruise is for me like Carmen Miranda or Mickey Mouse: Yo can never seee a character beyond him, you always see Tom Cruise (by the way, another fiction character made by Hollywood). And I can buy him as an action hero like I can with Miranda or Mr. Mouse.
  • Adam
    Tom Cruise is a real super star
  • vogue
    TOM CRUISE is NO REACHER. I love Lee Child. Introduced my boyfriend to the series. We both feel sick to our stomach about this. Fuck TC for taking on the roll and Fuck Lee Child for being a sold out bastard. Why on earth is this happening?
  • harleymama
    Tom Cruise as the 6 ft. 4 in. Jack Reacher? The joke of the century. Cruise couldn't be his water boy.
