Known Trivia

  • Idris Elba had originally been considered to take over as Alex Cross from Morgan Freeman. Idris had previously starred in Tyler Perry’s film Daddy’s Little Girls.
  • The screenplay was originally based on the James Patterson novel CROSS. For marketing purposes, the film title was changed to that of another Patterson novel, “I, Alex Cross”. The screenplay, however, is a very loose adaptation, based on CROSS; similarities between book and screenplay are few.
  • Matthew Fox went through a strict diet and workout routine to gain muscle and lose a high amount of body fat.
  • There are references in the novel “Cross” to both Morgan Freeman and Tyler Perry. The reference to Freeman may be homage to his role as Alex Cross in Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider.

Plot: A homicide detective is pushed to the brink of his moral and physical limits as he tangles with a ferociously skilled serial killer who specializes in torture and pain. Full summary » |  »
