The first images from the James Patterson adaptation Alex Cross have been released, showing Matthew Fox as an utter killing machine.
In this reboot of the franchise Tyler Perry takes over the titular role of Dr Alex Cross from Morgan Freeman. Also Ed Burns is pictured below as Perry’s partner, along with an unrecognizable Fox as the film’s villain.
The Rob Cohen-directed thriller co-stars Rachel Nichols, Giancarlo Esposito, John C. McGinley and Jean Reno.
Burns plays partner to the homicide detective/psychologist Cross, who need to track down Fox’s character Michael Sullivan, a ruthless assassin who murders Cross’ wife. While it does share a title with the 16th book in the series, it’s said to be a mostly original story. The first stills hint at what could be a a fun crime drama, in which Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits. Check them out above and below.
Pretty intense Alex Cross will be released in the US on October 26th, 2012.
