Rosamund Pike in the running to co-star with Tom Cruise in 'One Shot'

16-Aug-2011 • Actor News

Rosamund Pike, who plays alongside Pierce Brosnan's 007 in "Die Another Day" is in talks for the female lead in Tom Cruise's "One Shot", reports Deadline.

The project is an adaptation of Lee Child's thriller novel and a collaboration between Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Cruise is playing Jack Reacher, the retired military policeman who wanders the country with only his passport, bankbook, toothbrush and the clothes on his back. He finds his way into scrapes, taking the side of the underdog. In One Shot, Reacher investigates a case in which a lone sniper murders five victims before being captured. Reacher discovers it's more than a simple open-and-shut case.

Pike will play Helen Rodin, a local defense attorney defending the man arrested for the shootings.

Thanks to `Samuel001` for the alert.
