Tom Cruise has an offer in hand to star in the thriller One Shot for Paramount Pictures.

Christopher McQuarrie, who has worked on the screenplays for several Cruise projects in the past few years, has adapted the 2005 Lee Child novel for the screen and will also direct. In the book, ex-Army cop Reacher gets sucked into the mystery surrounding the arrest of a sniper accused of killing five random people in a shooting.

McQuarrie co-wrote the screenplay for Valkyrie, which Cruise toplined in 2008, worked on an adaptation of The Monster of Florence for Cruise when the project was at United Artists/MGM and co-wrote The Tourist, to which Cruise was once attached before Johnny Depp took the role.

The CAA-repped Cruise is filming Rock of Ages for Warner Bros. and next has Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol in theaters in December through Paramount. He is also attached to star in Oblivion for Universal.
