Tom Cruise has been busy shooting an adaptation of One Shot, in which he takes on Lee Child’s popular character Jack Reacher. Now EW has revealed the first official image from the movie, which you can see above.
There has been some controversy over this adaptation, since Jack Reacher is a hulking 6’5″ man in Lee Child’s noveld, and Tom Cruise is only 5’7″. The actor recently revealed that the author approved of his casting, saying, “For those of you who know the books, I’m obviously not 6-foot-5, like Jack Reacher. But Lee felt that I was the right guy to drive fast cars and kick the s-t out of people onscreen.”
In the novel, Reacher looks into the case of a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. Director Christopher McQuarrie comments on the character, “Someone asks him at one point in the story about the difference between a military policeman and a regular cop. Reacher points out that [for military police], every suspect is a trained killer. He is free from any sort of anxiety. He is truly not encumbered by all the bulls-t that makes up our daily lives. He literally and figuratively has no baggage.”
