The first set photos from Christopher McQuarrie’s adaptation of Lee Child’s One Shot and Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy have leaked online. Since these aren’t superhero movies and we’re not trying to glance fancy costumes, there’s not much you can glean from these set photos. Tom Cruise is playing ex-military investigator Jack Reacher in One Shot. The character will have short hair and drive a sweet ride. As for Weisz, we knew she would be playing “an operative from a covert government program that is even more dangerous than the Treadstone brainwashing program that hatched Bourne (Jeremy Renner),” and apparently the character will be rocking a sweet, sweet lab coat.
Hit the jump to check out the set photos. One Shot is due out February 8, 2013 and co-stars Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, Richard Jenkins, and Robert Duvall. The Bourne Legacy opens August 3, 2012 and also stars Oscar Isaac, Scott Glenn, Joan Allen, Albert Finney, Stacy Keach, and Edward Norton.
Here’s the synopsis of Lee Child’s novel One Shot.
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. [Amazon]
