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.

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.

Duvall just wrapped production on two projects, Billy Bob Thorton’s “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” and the indie “Mississippi Wild.”

He is repped by ICM.
