A Glimpse of Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher

After months of debate about whether he can pull it off, we finally get a glimpse of Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher in the film version of Lee Child’s ninth novel, One Shot, (Delacorte, 2005). The movie, which has been renamed Jack Reacher, opens Dec. 21.

Not much to go on here. About the only thing we can say is that Cruise didn’t dye his hair.

The movie is planned as the first in a trilogy.

The tie-in arrives in Nov.
