There’s a new movie on the horizon from Paramount Studios. It’s an adaptation of a newsworthy novel by an author named Lee Child, the story echoing recent and tragic events. Playing the character of Jack Reacher, former U.S. Army investigator, actor Tom Cruise gets caught up in a dark story surrounding an army sniper gone rogue: he’s shot and killed five people. The body of evidence piling up against the man is damning. During questioning, the man lets out just a few words: “find Jack Reacher.” Thereafter begins a frantic race for the truth, which will lead Jack Reacher to confront an unpredicted but ruthless enemy.
Cruise appears in this upcoming film next to Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Werner Herzog, David Oyelowo and Robert Duvall. Christopher McQuarrie (“The Usual Suspects”) wrote the screenplay and directed it.
