Based on the best-selling Jack Reacher series by author Lee Child, "One Shot" was initially set to arrive in theaters on Feb. 8, 2013. After Cruise's success last December with "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" (that Paramount release has earned the studio $688 million worldwide to date), executives seem to feel the megastar is back in the audience's good graces -- at least enough to compete with the likes of DiCaprio and J.R.R. Tolkien.
In other release news, Paramount has set the reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" for Christmas 2013. Unfortunately, Tom Cruise does not appear in that one.
