Tom Cruise Is Jack Reacher.

The picture above, from Empire Magazine, is the first official still shot of Tom Cruise in his latest movie One Shot, based on the book of the same name by author Lee Child.

The plot of which rattles along like so:

A city is thrown into chaos following a shooting that leaves five dead. What at first seems like a simple case to solve becomes complicated when the accused requests that Jack Reacher be put on the case.

Only problem is Jack Reacher, a character which now has a firm and loyal fan base of readers thanks to a series of books by Child is 6′ 5″ tall with a 50-inch chest, and weighs between 210 and 250 pounds unlike the ickle Mr Cruise. Incidentally Reacher also has ice-blue eyes and dirty blond hair and is strong enough to break a man’s neck with one hand (Bad Luck and Trouble) and kill a villain with a single punch to the head (Running Blind and 61 Hours) or chest (Worth Dying For).

Well done Hollywood. Well done.
