Scroll down to see the new poster for Alex Cross featuring Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox.
In the film Perry plays the title detective in hot pursuit of Fox’s villain.
The role of Cross was originated on screen by Morgan Freeman in Along Came A Spider and Kiss the Girls. This is the odd role for Perry being that, other than a cameo in J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Perry has only appeared in his own films. I’m assuming the material here is a lot darker than anything we’ve seen him do before, so the result should interesting if nothing else.
Alex Cross was directed by Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious). In addition to Perry and Fox the film also stars Edward Burns, Rachel Nichols and Jean Reno. You can catch it in theatres October 19th.
