Summit Nabs U.S. Rights to 'I, Alex Cross'
The movie stars Tyler Perry as the detective-psychologist created by novelist James Patterson.
Summit has picked up U.S. rights to I, Alex Cross, in which Tyler Perry is set to play the detective-psychologist created by novelist James Patterson, a Summit spokesman confirmed Wednesday.
Rob Cohen is directing the film for QED, with QED partners Bill Block and Paul Hanson producing along with exec producers Leopoldo Gout and Steve Bowen.
Summit's acquisition reteams its chairman/CEO Rob Friedman, with the franchise. During his tenure as Paramount vice chairman, Paramount released the two earlier adaptations of Patterson's Cross novels -- 1997's Kiss the Girls and 2001's Along Came a Spider, both starring Morgan Freeman.
