With Rob Cohen’s adaptation of James Patterson’s Alex Cross opening in theaters this weekend, you might have thought we’d have to wait to gauge audience response to Tyler Perry in Morgan Freeman’s former role before moving ahead with sequels. Think again. Perry and Patterson are reportedly in the final stages of sealing a deal for the planned sequel, Double Cross. Another adaptation from Patterson’s series, this would return Perry to the title role of the crime solver faced with yet another serial killing spree. Not bad for being the first picture that Perry didn’t direct, produce or write. Hit the jump for more on Double Cross.
