James Patterson Loves What He's Seen So Far Of "I, Alex Cross" Footage ("Brought Tears To My Eyes")

Just making my way back again from the set of the Alex Cross movie, and I'm feeling pretty up-beat about it. Tyler is great. He's going to blow everybody's minds. And Ed Burns is irrepressible, a real talent.

Just making my way back again from the set of the Alex Cross movie, and I'm feeling pretty up-beat about it. Tyler is great. He's going to blow everybody's minds. And Ed Burns is irrepressible, a real talent.

Not sure if any of you is following author James Patterson on Facebook (he's the dude who wrote the Alex Cross novels in case you're not familiar); he's been sharing his reactions to the current big screen adaptation of his work. Obviously, the man is right there on the set, taking it all in, and possibly even consulting with director Rob Cohen, and star Tyler Perry.

Anywho... the above was his most recent Facebook post, done about an hour ago.

Last week, he shared this:

Just saw a daily from the Alex Cross movie that apparently brought tears to the eyes of everybody who saw it, myself included. Sorry I can’t tell you more—I’m sworn to secrecy.

So, the easy joke there would be, what kind of tears are we talking about here - joy or pain? Ho-ho-ho :)

Obviously, I don't expect him to say anything critical of the production - certainly not at this stage. But that could also simply be because he genuinely means what he's said so far, and it's not all just marketing.

He's also posted links to on-set videos (we posted both here), and more.

So, if you want to follow the man on Facebook, go HERE to do so.
