Paramount has decided to rename the upcoming Tom Cruise crime drama, previously known as One Shot, to Jack Reacher. Cruise plays the lead in this movie and the new title is the name of his character. This film is based on a series of novels by Lee Child and will focus on Reacher, an ex-service member attempting to solve a mystery involving a sniper accused of murdering five people. Some fans of the book series have expressed concern over Cruise’s casting because Reacher is described as being over six feet tall and blond — features Tom Cruise definitely does not have. The film will be directed by Christopher McQuarrie and also stars Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins and Rosamund Pike. The name of the movie is not the only change made by Paramount; the release date has also been moved from February 2013 to December 21, 2012. ~Stacy Raivich
