Tyler Perry known most for his portrayal as a hard knock grandma in the Madea films, will be taking on the role left by Morgan Freeman in the past James Patterson novel films that include Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. This is the third Alex Cross film to be adapted from Patterson's novels. Summit Entertainment recently picked up the rights to this film. I honestly have to say i would much rather see Morgan Freeman in this role again but it does look like they plan on adding several other films to the franchise. Not to say the Morgan Freeman is to old, he is still pumping out films like RED, Invictus and not to mention the recent Batman films. I think he'd be more than capable but then again we all know that Hollywood loves adding a fresh actor to an old character. I personally think Morgan Freeman is one of the greatest actors of our time. I mean if Harrison Ford can play Indie one last time, I think they should have let Freeman do his thing as Alex Cross one more time.
