Who will be Tom Cruise's leading lady in his next film?

Aug. 15, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Tom Cruise is prepping his next film, ONE SHOT, an adaptation of the Jack Reacher series of novels and, as Tom Cruise is wont to do, he's testing a bevy of Hollywood's finest starlets for his love interest. Currently Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie are meeting with CAPTAIN AMERICA star Hayley Atwell (seen with her dynamic cleavage to the right), one-time Bond girl Rosamund Pike and CLASH OF THE TITANS princess Alexa Davalos.

The role these trio of ladies are reading for is a love interest for Cruise's Reacher, a beautiful young woman who happens to be the daughter of the US District Attorney. The character isn't based on one specific girl from the books though it's likely a compilation of a few of his former flames (the dude dates many daughters of many politically famous dudes).

The studio is reportedly looking for an actress with some chops but not quite A-list in name. Indie Darling Brit Marling was once in talks for the part but had to bow out because of scheduling issues (she since signed on to star in Robert Redford's upcoming film). Filming on ONE SHOT is expected to begin this fall in Pittsburgh (what is it with Pittsburgh??) after Cruise formally wraps on ROCK OF AGES.

All fine ladies, some good choices. And that is a great picture of the lovely Hayley.

As for the cold reception to casting Cruise. I remember people weren't initially thrilled about him cast as Lestat, and that turned out fine. Anne Rice thought so too. We'll see if lightning strikes twice.

nice shortlist

I guess I'd go with Alexa Davalos, she's a real cutie. However, Hayley Atwell isn't far behind.

But, Tom is doing this after Rock of Ages? I'd much rather see him do Oblivion, that movie had a sci-fi epic written all over it and with Kosinski's visuals it might have been something else. Does anyone know what's the status on Oblivion now?

I believe the plan is to shoot Oblivion early next year.

Pittburgh

Two guesses: Tax Incentives and its a generic looking city that can stand in for an unnamed major metropolitan area

I'd go for Hayley Atwell. Rosamund Pike is great but I wouldn't be convinced if she was cast as Cruise's lover - she'd eat him for breakfast (and not in the good way).

Hayley Atwell is my pick. She was insanely sexy in 'Captain America'.
