's film credits are endless. Two of his biggest films are 1997's Kiss The Girls
and 2001's Along Came a Spider
where the Oscar winner played detective-psychologist Alex Cross in the James Patterson
created crime franchise. Now, word is out that Tyler Perry
will be the new Alex Cross for the film I, Alex, Cross
, which will be directed by Rob Cohen
, who was behind The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
. Rumor has it Perry has signed on for three films.
Supposedly, Idris Elba
was the original choice for the role -- there are no details on why he is no longer on the project.
For awhile I've been saying I wanted to see Tyler Perry in a film that wasn't directed or written by him. I think he might surprise audiences in this completely new genre that isn't comedy.
