A fan of Tyler Perry, but don’t like to watch him direct a film? Then 2012 will apparently be your year. Or at least this October will be a far more interesting month for you.
According to ComingSoon, Summit has announced that their upcoming film, Alex Cross, will hit theaters on October 26. The film stars Perry, Matthew Fox, Rachel Nichols, and Ed Burns, and follows the story of a “homicide detective/psychologist (Perry) as he meets his match in a serial killer (Fox). The two face off in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, but when the mission gets personal, Cross is pushed to the edge of his moral and psychological limits in this taut and exciting action thriller.”
Helmed by Rob Cohen, the film is based on a beloved series by author James Patterson.
I couldn’t be less interested in this film if it tried to be any less intriguing. The story sounds utterly ridiculous, and even more so when you take into account that the film will star Perry. October is one hell of an odd choice for a film like this, but then again, don’t be shocked to see Summit push this one even further away.
