Actress Rosamund Pike is in talks to portray the female lead in One Shot for Paramount Pictures. We reported earlier this week that the actress was a finalist for the role, along with Hayley Atwell and Alexa Davalos.

The story centers on Tom Cruise's character Jack Reacher, a former military police officer who now just drifts across the country as a P.I.. He comes to investigates a lone sniper who has murdered five victims, and realizes there is much more to the case. Rosamund Pike will play Helen Rodin, an attorney defending the sniper who works with Reacher.

Christopher McQuarrie will direct One Shot from his own screenplay. One Shot is the ninth book in the Jack Reacher novel series by Lee Childs.

It isn't clear when production will begin on One Shot.

Jack Reacher was released December 21st, 2012 and stars Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Werner Herzog, Jai Courtney, Vladimir Sizov, Joseph Sikora. The film is directed by Christopher McQuarrie.

    I will probably not see this movie. Love the Jack Reacher character but do not want to picture him as Tom Crusie..... Reacher is more a Gerard Butler, John Cena or Channing Tatum kind of man. Ugh! :(

    I have no problem with any three of these ladies getting the role. If Pike wins out, congrats to her.
