Rob Cohen (director of xXx and the first FAST AND THE FUROUS movie) is helming a new bigscreenification of James Patterson's hugely successful Alex Cross literary character. Cross was previously played by Morgan Freeman in ALONG CAME A SPIDER and KISS THE GIRLS over a decade ago - this time Tyler Perry will take the part, facing off against a very badass and demented looking Matthew Fox (Dr. Jack on LOST).
Sporting 12 producers (!?!?!?) per IMDB, ALEX CROSS arrives in theaters this October. An interesting detail many folks don't associate with Cohen: he was an Executive Producer on MONSTER SQUAD back in 1987, and a producer on THE WIZ in 1978.
Here's our first trailer for the film. I wasn't a fan of KISS TH GIRLS or ALONG CAME A SPIDER, and honestly don't know what an ALEX CROSS film is supposed to look/feel; like, but I actually think this is a pretty cool trailer and it leaves me very curious about the film.
The trailer is HERE at IMDB (officially), and I've also included an embed below...
