Oscar-winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) has been hired by Paramount to rework the thriller One Shot, which he may also end up directing. Per Heat Vision, “The project is based on a series of novels written by Lee Child that center on Jack Reacher, a military police officer-turned-drifter. One Shot, the ninth book in the series, tells the story of a military sniper accused of murder who seeks Reacher’s help.” Not surprisingly, Paramount is hoping to develop the property into a franchise.
If McQuarrie were hired to direct, it would be his first film since the 2000’s astoundingly wretched The Way of the Gun (which he also wrote). McQuarrie recently handled the screenplays for the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer.
