Rosamund Pike, Alexa Davalos and Hayley Atwell. Do you recognize those names? It's OK if you don't. Chances are you already know who they are, but be ready for one of them to land on your radar big-time in the not too distant future.

These ladies are eyeing an opportunity that could skyrocket their career to It girl status. So what does superstar Tom Cruise have to do with all of this?

Turns out everyone wants to be a part of Tom's upcoming flick, One Shot. And who could blame them? In the movie Cruise plays an ex-military homicide cop in charge of a seemingly open-and-shut murder case: a military sniper arrested for shooting five random people. (A Few Good Men Version 2.0?) A serious drama with an A-list leading man is the perfect career catapult.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pike, Davalos and Atwell are in the running to team up with Cruise in the role of a tough female lawyer who's also the daughter of a district attorney.

So where might you know these ladies from? Pike already has the dedicated lawyer role on her résumé after starring in Fracture with Ryan Gosling, and Davalos caught everyone's attention as the headstrong Andromeda in Clash of the Titans. But it's Atwell who burst onto the blockbuster scene most recently with her turn opposite Chris Evans as the no-nonsense Peggy Carter in Captain America.

We don't envy the tough decision Tom is going to have to make. Sounds like these ladies have more than enough chops to take on a case that has layer upon layer of intrigue.

Who do you want to see team up with Tom? Let us know!
