Par pouring ‘Shot’ for Jenkins

Thesp to join adaptation of Jack Reacher novels

Richard Jenkins is set to join the cast of Paramount and Skydance’s “One Shot,” starring Tom Cruise.

Pic already has Rosamund Pike and David Oyelowo set to star, with Christopher McQuarrie on board to direct from a script he penned.

The book series by Lee Child follows Jack Reacher, a former military policeman turned drifter. In “One Shot,” Reacher investigates the case of a sniper accused of murdering five people before being captured.

Jenkins would play the district attorney who prosecutes the sniper.

Cruise and David Ellison will produce along with Don Granger, Paula Wagner, Dana Goldberg and Gary Levinsohn through Mutual Film Company and Cruise/Wagner Productions.

Jenkins was most recently seen in Screen Gems’ “Friends With Benefits” and can be seen next in “The Rum Diary” starring Johnny Depp.

He is repped by Gersh and Bill Treusch Management.
