Idris Elba May Be New Alex Cross


British Actor Idris Elba (The Losers) says that he has been offered the role of Alex Cross in the next movie based on James Patterson’s character. The part was played by Morgan Freeman in the first two films, ‘Kiss the Girls’ and ‘Along Came a Spider’. Says Elba, “I have been offered to play Alex Cross and if that happens, I’m really excited about it.”

Lloyd Levin (Watchmen) is producing the third film, which will be based on Patterson’s novel ‘Cross’. The official synopsis for the book reads:

“Alex Cross was a rising star in the Washington, DC, Police Department when an unknown shooter gunned down his wife, Maria, in front of him. Alex’s need for vengeance was placed on hold as he faced another huge challenge-raising his children without their mother.”

“Then Cross’s former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. He is tracking a serial rapist in Georgetown, one whose brutal modus operandi includes threatening his victims with terrifying photos. Cross and Sampson need the testimonies of these women to stop the predator, but the rape victims refuse to reveal anything about their attacker. When the case triggers a connection to Maria’s death, Alex may have a chance to catch his wife’s murderer after all these years. Is this a chance for justice at long last? Or the culminating scene in his own deadly obsession?”
