Here’s a production clip of Tyler Perry in action as he shoots his role as Alex Cross in ‘I, Alex Cross.’
Directed by Rob Cohen, the film also features Rachel Nichols, Jean Reno, Ed Burns, Giancarlo Esposito and Matthew Fox.
‘I, Alex Cross’ is the reboot of the James Patterson novels where a younger Cross hunts down serial rapist Michael Sullivan (played by Fox), who kills both for money and thrills. He’s known as the Butcher of Sligo and shows why after Cross thwarts one of his killing attempts. Sullivan makes his retribution personal, by killing the detective’s wife in gruesome fashion. Then it becomes a mano a mano battle between them. Sullivan is one of the best known villains in the Patterson-penned novel series.
Perry, after Idris Elba was initially approached, is taking over the role that Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman had when he starred in both Paramount films, ‘Kiss the Girls’ (1997) and ‘Along Came A Spider’ (2001).
The film is being produced by QED partners Bill Block and Paul Hanson.
