Yes, that insane-looking MMA fighter above is indeed Matthew Fox. James Patterson‘s best-selling detective series (which originally starred Morgan Freeman as Cross in Kiss The Girls and then Along Came a Spider) is getting the reboot and we’ve got the first stills today. Alex Cross, directed by Rob Cohen (xXx, Stealth), is toplined by Tyler Perry and also features Fox, Edward Burns, Rachel Nichols, Giancarlo Esposito and Jean Reno.
Burns plays partner to Cross, who need to track down Fox’s character Michael Sullivan, a ruthless assassin who murders Cross’ wife. While it does share a title with the 16th book in the series, it’s said to be a mostly original story. The first stills hint at what could be a a fun crime drama, but hopes aren’t too high when it comes to Cohen at the helm. Nonetheless, check them out above and below.
Alex Cross hits theaters on October 26th.
