Tyler Perry Is The New Morgan Freeman?

Morgan Freeman’s film credits are endless. Two of his biggest films are 1997’s Kiss The Girls and 2001’s Along Came a Spider where the Oscar winner played detective-psychologist Alex Cross in the James Patterson created crime franchise. Now, word is out that Tyler Perry will be the new Alex Cross for the film I, Alex, Cross, which will be directed by Rob Cohen, who was behind The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor.  Rumor has it Perry has signed on for three films.

Supposedly, Idris Elba was the original choice for the role — there are no details on why he is no longer on the project.

For awhile I’ve been saying I wanted to see Tyler Perry in a film that wasn’t directed or written by him. I think he might surprise audiences in this completely new genre that isn’t comedy.
