Set Photos of Characters from the Alex Cross Film

I, Alex Cross (2012)

A number of character photos from the set of the new "Alex Cross" film have been released … though it still isn't clear what the title of the film actually is.

It was originally titled I, Alex Cross — indeed, several months ago a poster was released by the studio with this title and the studio website still lists this as the film's title — but news reports later indicated a change to just Alex Cross, presumably to avoid confusion with the James Patterson book I, Alex Cross, the storyline of which is not the basis for this film.

Here's the synopsis from the studio: Alex Cross meets his match against the psychotic, mob hit man Michael Sullivan aka The Butcher of Sligo. As Cross investigates the hit man's gruesome murders, Sullivan decides to send him a deadly message by murdering his wife in cold blood. Now enraged, Cross vows to hunt down the killer if it's the last thing he does. However, Sullivan is a serial killing mastermind and continues to evade Cross while pushing him to an ethical breaking point as a cop and father. As Cross closes in on the killer, he discovers evidence that points to the unimaginable — a revelation that could change everything.

(This synopsis is fairly close to the plotline of the 12th "Alex Cross" book, which was published in 2006 as simply titled Cross.)

We just may have to wait until the trailer is released to find out what the producers have decided to title this film.

In the meantime, below are some of the photos released … Tyler Perry as Dr. Alex Cross, Edward Burns as Detective Tommy Kane, Rachel Nichols as Detective Monica Ash, and Matthew Fox as Michael Sullivan. Directed by Rob Cohen from a screenplay by Kerry Williamson and Marc Moss from a story by James Patterson, the film opens in theaters October 26th, 2012.
