Yeah. Tyler Perry as a cop. Nevermind a pistol-packing cop. I don’t see it. Whereas before I thought it was just a bad idea when Perry’s casting was originally announced, now I think it’s a really, really bad idea after seeing these pics from the movie. But hey, maybe he’ll surprise us all and prove to be great in the role, who can really say? The character isn’t John McClane, after all, and was never meant to be, so who knows. Perry is, of course, taking over the role from Morgan Freeman, who played Alex Cross in two previous films. Also in the cast is former “Lost” star Matthew Fox as the villain. And DAMN, dude looks like he really went the method route on this one. Check out those popping veins on the Foxster!
Crusading Detective/Psychologist ALEX CROSS (Tyler Perry) meets his match against the psychotic, mob hit man, MICHAEL SULLIVAN aka THE BUTCHER. As Cross investigates the hit man’s gruesome murders, Sullivan decides to send him a deadly message by murdering his wife in cold blood. Now enraged, Cross vows to hunt down the killer if it’s the last thing he does. However, Sullivan is a serial killing mastermind and continues to evade Cross while pushing him to an ethical breaking point as a cop and father. As Cross closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable–a revelation that could change everything. With unstoppable action, and unforeseeable twists, this suspenseful action thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The rebooted “Alex Cross” stars Tyler Perry, Matthew Fox, Jean Reno, Edward Burns, Rachel Nichols, Giancarlo Esposito, John C. McGinley, Carmen Ejogo, Chad Lindberg, Cicely Tyson, and is directed by Rob Cohen.
