The “Alex Cross” role originated in the Along Came A Spider and Kiss The Girls movies and was played by Morgan Freeman. Now, with no explanation; Tyler is replacing him in this movie with someone else.
Our source tells close to Tyler tells us:
Idris wanted to free up his time because he is really close to securing the role of James Bond. It would be the biggest role of his career….Tyler understood, and then released him from his contract without the blink of an eye; and gave him his blessing.
