Tom Cruise Movie Filmed in Sewickley to Premiere in South Side

'Jack Reacher,' partly filmed in Sewickley last year, will premiere Dec. 15 in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh will play host to the premiere of a Tom Cruise movie that was filmed in several local communities, including Sewickley, last year.

"Jack Reacher," originally named "One Shot" after the novel that the story is based on, will premiere at the SouthSide Works Cinema on Dec. 15.

According to a report from WPXI, Tom Cruise and co-stars Robert Duvall and Rosamund Pike are expected to return to Pittsburgh to attend the premiere, which is the first film premiere Pittsburgh has hosted in several decades.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that director Christopher McQuarrie and novelist Lee Child are also scheduled to attend.

Paramount Pictures will take over all 10 screens and 1,659 seats in the SouthSide Works Cinema for the 2 p.m. showing, according to the P-G.

A portion of the movie was filmed at the old Sewickley Country Inn last October and November. Fans that gathered to watch on the sidewalk went wild when Tom Cruise at long wait appeared from a black sport utility vehicle and waved to the crowd. Patch was there to speak to eager fans as they waited in the cold. 

"Jack Reacher" is scheduled to open nationwide on Dec. 21.
