Josh Olson will adapt Author Lee Child's thriller novel "One Shot " says Variety
"One Shot" is part of a series of books about Jack Reacher, an ex-Army policeman. In this Case he seeks the truth behind a murder case in which an ex-infantry trained sniper is arrested for shooting five random victims.
Some key details are still being worked out because the original submission for the project comes from a now ex Cruise/ Wagner-employee.
If you've seen A History of Violence then you know of Olson's skills...
And He's plenty busy now--he still has his revisionist version of L. Frank Baum's Oz books in the pipeline, as well as an adaptation of Dennis Lehane's short story "Until Gwen" which he will direct.
