Tyler Perry has built an empire for himself starring, directing and writing movies that are extremely popular in African American community, but made outside the Hollywood system. However now he’s trying to expand his appeal by starring in someone else’s film, Alex Cross, based on James Patterson novel, I Alex Cross.
The character has already had a couple of screen appearances, with Morgan Freeman as the detective in Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider, but if these images are anything to go by, Rob Cohen’s new film is a llot grittier. You can see the first pics above and below – which include a barely recognisable and psychotic looking Matthew Fox. The film will hit cinemas this October.
Here’s the synopsis of the book: ‘Can Alex Cross survive his most chilling – and personal – case ever? Pulled out of a family celebration, Detective Alex Cross gets awful news: A beloved relative has been found brutally murdered. Vowing to catch the killer, he quickly learns that she was mixed up in one of Washington, D.C.’s wildest scenes. And she was not this killer’s only victim . . . The hunt for the murderer leads Alex and his girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, to a place where every fantasy is possible, if you have the credentials to get in. Soon they confront some very important, very protected, and very dangerous people who will do anything to keep their secrets safe. As Alex closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable – a revelation that could rock the entire world.’ (Images via Kinopoisk)
