Tyler Perry and Matthew Fox's new action thriller Alex Cross doesn't come out until Friday, but production company QED is already planning to make a sequel based on the James Patterson novel Double Cross. This is the 13th book in the Alex Cross series and here's a description of the story:
Just when Alex Cross's life is calming down, he is drawn back into the game to confront a criminal mastermind like no other. The elaborate murders that have stunned Washington, DC, are the wildest that Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. This maniac adores an audience, and stages his killings as spectacles in public settings. Alex is pursuing a genius of terror who has the whole city on edge as it waits for his next move. And the killer loves the attention, no doubt–he even sets up his own Web site and live video feed to trumpet his madness.
Perry will reprise his role as the famous Washington DC crimefighter/psychologist. I have yet to see the film, but I'm more excited about seeing Fox as the villain. From the trailers I've seen of the movie, it's hard for me to see Perry in a role like this, it just doesn't seem to fit him.
Are you looking forward to seeing Alex Cross? Do you think Perry fits the role? And are you excited to hear we are going to see a sequel?
