More information about the book

Deadline: New York is reporting that Idris Elba has been cast as Dr. Alex Cross in the film adaptation of the novel Cross, the 12th in the series of suspense thrillers by James Patterson. Production is expected to begin next year.

Morgan Freeman starred as the forensic psychologist in two previous film adaptations, Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls.

In the book, Cross's former partner, John Sampson, calls in a favor. He is tracking a serial rapist in Georgetown, one whose brutal modus operandi recalls a case Sampson and Cross worked together years earlier. When the case reveals a connection to his wife's death, Cross latches on for the most urgent and terrifying ride of his life.

  2. Awesome. Elba is handsome and a talented actor. Can't wait to see him in this role.

  3. don't fix something that isn't broken. The only one to play that character is Morgan Freeman!
