After a brief stint at rocking out, Tom Cruise is now back to doing what he does best this fall. Following last year’s stellar action blockbuster Ghotocol, the actor is returning to the thriller arena with an adaptation of the Lee Child novel One Shot, Jack Reacher. The Usual Suspects writer and The Way of the Gun director Christopher McQuarrie is behind the camera and I’m particularly excited for Werner Herzog as the main villain here. EW has some more details on the film – including a response to the exhausted talk regarding the height of our lead – as well as a first photo, which can be seen below for the film also starring Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Jai Courtney, Richard Jenkins, James Martin Kelly and David Oyelowo.
Jack Reacher hits theaters December 21st.
