Paramount Moves Forward with Film Adaptation of One Shot by Lee Child

One Shot by Lee Child
More information about the book

The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog is reporting that Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie, The Tourist) will rework the screenplay for the film adaptation of Lee Child's One Shot, the ninth thriller in the Jack Reacher series. McQuarrie is also looking to direct.

Paramount has an option on the series and may be looking at its franchise potential.

About One Shot (from the publisher): Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me.

And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter -- a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right -- and soon the slam-dunk case explodes.

Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning -- and then beat him shot for shot.
