While we definitely have given Tyler Perry his fair share of grief around here, the writer/director/actor/producer is certainly ready move on from the hugely successful niche he's carved out and try something with broader appeal, so we commend him for that. He's set to topline "I, Alex Cross" a thriller that has already attracted Matthew Fox and Ed Burns to the cast and now another a towering legend of French cinema is on the way too.

You may have forgotten, but Tyler Perry is making strides outside of films that he writes and directs and just a couple of months ago, he stepped in the lead role in "I, Alex Cross" taking over for Idris Elba (and thus, killing our interest in the movie). Anyway, casting is gearing up and two names have joined the film.

Tyler Perry Is Also The Real Black SwanDr. Alex Cross, the character created by James Patterson in his best-selling books, is no stranger to the big screen. In 1997 and 2001, Morgan Freeman played the role of the crime busting psychologist in "Kiss The Girls" and "Along Came A Spider" and now the franchise (of sorts) is getting a reboot and moving in some interesting directions.
