Who do you want to see play Lee Child's Jack Reacher in the movie version?
We actually may be getting closer to the day that we see Lee Child's Jack Reacher character make it to the screen.
According to the Hollywood Reporter and a couple of other sources, Christopher McQuarrie has been tapped to rework an existing script for the Paramount thriller One Shot and to become its director.
McQuarrie won an Oscar for writing The Usual Suspects and co-wrote the upcoming Johnny Depp-Angelina Jolie thriller The Tourist. The first and last time he directed was the 2000 The Way of the Gun.
One Shot, the ninth book in the series, is about a military sniper accused of murder who seeks Reacher's help.
Now that the script and the director are set, can the casting be far behind? Who to play Jack Reacher, the former military cop turned drifter? I think it has to be an unknown or a TV actor who can carry a movie.
Like I said, Who do you want to see play Lee Child's Jack Reacher in the movie version?
