Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox just aren’t seeing eye-to-eye in Rob Cohen’s upcoming “Alex Cross”, Summit Entertainment’s reboot of the character originally played by Morgan Freeman in 1997’s “Kiss the Girls”, and then once again in 2001’s “Along Came a Spider”. From a purely business standpoint, it’s a friggin’ genius move by Summit. Perry’s legion of fans alone will make this thing a hit on opening week. How it fares after that is anybody’s guess. But how will Perry’s fans respond to Perry blowing people away onscreen with a shotgun? I don’t think he’s done that before in the Medea movies, has he? Anyways, check out four new images from the movie, check it outers.
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.
Also starring Jean Reno, Edward Burns, Rachel Nichols, Giancarlo Esposito, John C. McGinley, Carmen Ejogo, Chad Lindberg, and Cicely Tyson.
