CinemaCon ’12: One Shot Footage Screens

April 25, 2012

Paramount showed off the first footage from their upcoming adaptation of  Lee Child’s Jack Reacher in “One Shot” yesterday at the annual CinemaCon (formerly called ShoWest) in Vegas.

Curious to note that “One Shot” was never mentioned or seen as a title with some suggesting it’ll likely be called a variation on the lead character (ie. “Reacher” or “Jack Reacher”).

In this particular story Reacher (Tom Cruise) investigates a murder that seems like a slam-dunk but turns out to be more complicated than he could have imagined. The crime involves a sniper arrested for murdering five people at a mall.

There are hopes that the film will launch a potential franchise for the studio. However some folks were wondering if its 5’7″ star can pull off a character written as being 6’5″ tall

Three scenes were screened: A bar brawl and a high-speed car chase–the reaction online so far has been quite good

Rosamund Pike is cast as a tough lawyer and daughter of the discrict attorney. British actor David Oyelowo also stars as a homicide detective investigating the case. Richard Jenkins will play the district attorney prosecuting the sniper. Filmmaker Werner Herzog will play the villain Jai Courtney plays a highly trained sniper who is motivated to stop Reacher Robert Duvall will has a small, but pivotal role. Alexia Fast and Michael Raymond-James co-stars

Christopher McQuarrie wrote the adapted screenplay and directs the film

David Ellison and Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Gary Levinsohn and Paula Wagner produce the pic.

The film has a February 8th, 2013 debut planned.
