If it's crap ... We'll tell you
'Lost' star Matthew Fox has been out of the spotlight pretty much since the hit show ended, but the 44-year old actor will be making his return to feature films as a serial killer in the upcoming reboot "I, Alex Cross". The Alex Cross series, written by novelist James Patterson, is hugely successful and has previously been made into two films: "Along Came a Spider" and "Kiss the Girls", both featuring Morgan Freeman as Cross - a Washington, D.C. detective and psychologist. Fox joins Ed Burns and Tyler Perry, who was recently cast as the franchise's new Alex Cross.
In the film, Matthew Fox will be playing against type as the villain - a man named Michael Sullivan aka "The Butcher of Sligo" who kills for money and the pure thrill of it. When Alex Cross thwarts one of his attempts, Sullivan proves his nickname by gruesomely killing Cross's wife, leading to a deadly game of cat-and-mouse between the two. Known for playing the good guy, Fox's last big film role was as Racer X in 2008's "Speed Racer".
Directed by Rob Cohen ('The Fast and the Furious'), and written by Mark Moss (who also wrote 2001's "Along Came a Spider"), it is hoped that the film will kickstart the dormant franchise for the 17-book series.
