Alex Cross 1Alex Cross will be Matthew Fox like we’ve never seen him before. These first images show Fox as an utter killing machine, armed to the teeth with just his bare muscles (and also a gun).

After Morgan Freeman played the role of Dr. Alex Cross in the first two adaptations of James Patterson’s series of books, Tyler Perry will now be front and centre as the detective tasked to track down the killer.

“After Washington DC detective Alex Cross is told that a family member has been murdered, he vows to track down the killer. He soon discovers that she was not his first victim and that things are not what they seem.”

Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) is behind the camera, with a script co-written by Marc Moss (Along Came a Spider) and Kerry Williamson, adapting Patterson’s 2006 novel, Cross.

Previously titled I, Alex Cross, the film also stars Ed Burns (Saving Private Ryan), Rachel Nichols (Alias), Jean Reno (Leon), Giancarlo Esposito (The Usual Suspects), and John C. McGinley (Scrubs).

Alex Cross will be released in the US on 26th October later this year. As yet, no word on a UK release date, but given the popularity of Patterson’s novels and the previous adapted films, we’ll no doubt be getting it on the big screen too.

If these first images are anything to go by, it should be pretty intense. As usual, you can click to enlarge.
