Reacher Title Locked, “Amour” Date Set

On Monday I reported that the first trailer for the Tom Cruise-led adaptation of Lee Child’s “One Shot” was set to debut soon and was going by the title of “Jack Reacher”, the name of Cruise’s character. First signs of this title change came back in April at CinemaCon and later on billboards at Cannes.

Now, Paramount Pictures have confirmed to THR that “Jack Reacher” is indeed the film’s official title. The project remains on track for a December release.

Meanwhile Sony Pictures Classics have announced a December 19th U.S. release date for this year’s Palme d’Or winner at Cannes – Michael Haneke’s ‘Amour’. Slap bang in the middle of awards season, SPC is no doubt going to be making a major push for the title with voters.
