‘Don’t Ever Cross Alex Cross.’

That’s the tagline for director Rob Cohen’s new film Alex Cross which is an adaptation of James Patterson’s novel Cross, the twelfth in his series featuring his most famous character, you guessed it, Alex Cross. In the novel, the plot revolves around a series of killings in Washington D.C. that are related to a mob boss that Alex thinks is responsible for killing his wife over a decade in the past.

The film, however, seems to have simplified this plot to a serial killer that just enjoys inflicting pain. Starring Tyler Perry as the title character and Matthew Fox as the crazed serial killer, the film will be released October 19 in the US and November 30 in the UK. The screenwriters on the project are Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson. Here is the first look at the trailer and the film poster:

Any Patterson fans out there? How do you think the film will hold up against the novel?
