Robert Duvall to team up again with Tom Cruise for One Shot

09.28.2011

I was a young lass when DAYS OF THUNDER came out. Though I may not know the movie word for word, I will always remember the relationship between a much younger Tom Cruise as race car driver and Robert Duvall as his crew chief. "Rubbin' is racin'." Words that remain infamous in the hearts of NASCAR fans.

The two played well off each other so its great to see that they will be reunited for Christopher McQuarrie's ONE SHOT. The adaptation of the Lee Daniel's novel follows Jack Reacher (Cruise) a former military policeman turned drifter. He is investigating the case of a sniper accused of killing five people before being captured.

There are no specific details on what role Duvall is in final negotiations for but apparently it's a small role significant to Reacher's story line.

Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins are already signed on to star in the film alongside Cruise. McQuarrie serves as both writer and director on the project.

Tom Cruise to Robert Duvall - "Harry, this guy's going down!" and swoosh by other drivers - Classic. I'm looking forward to this reunion.

Lee Child is the author's name.

As a fan of the books I am going from being totally against having Cruise play Jack Reacher to being curious about how they will pull it off. I do think that Cruise has charisma as Ethan Hunt, and is believable as an action star simply because he puts so much into his work. Hollywood movies can make anyone look like a badass (well, except Taylor Lautner apparently). Eddie Murphy famously talked about how in the movies he could look tough but on the street he'd get his ass whipped in a real

So, while Cruise is a horrible choice for Reacher, I will probably watch it anyway. I love Robert Duvall.

"Let me drive....I won't make a fool out of you". YES. This is great news. The Cruise and Duvall chemistry in Days of Thunder was amazing and I'm sure we'll see it again in this even if it is a small role. Can't wait.
