Idris Elba is the new Alex Cross

Meet the new Alex Cross!

Idris Elba will reprise the role made famous by Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman  in ‘Cross’ the latest adaptation from the James Patterson murder mystery series.

Elba, who can be seen next weekend in ‘Takers’ and next year in the highly anticipated ‘Thor’, will star in ‘Cross’ which follows Det. Alex Cross as he tries to leave the FBI in hopes of reestablishing his private practice.

replacing Morgan Freeman is certainly not an easy job, but Idris Elba has the talent, looks and charisma to pull it off.  This is definitely a great boost for his already booming career.
