Casting! Here's info one one potentially great project, one that will probably find an appreciative audience, and one that will perhaps just make you hungry. I'll let you figure out which is which: Wentworth Miller joins Park Chan-wook's first English-language film, Stoker, John C. McGinley will realize his destiny by playing police chief to Tyler Perry in I, Alex Cross, and Tyler Posey will go to war with rival taco vendors in Taco Shop. I'm very excited for Stoker, which is about to shoot in Nashville and will be the English-language debut of Oldboy and Thirst director Park Chan-wook. The film is a Hitchcockian-sounding thriller written by Wentworth Miller, about a young woman who has to deal with the incursion of her mysterious uncle into the family after the death of her father. Mia Wasikowska plays the girl; Nicole Kidman is her mother; Matthew Goode is the uncle, and now »

Can Tyler Perry Pull Off Alex Cross?

1 February 2011 2:13 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

As an actor, Tyler Perry is known as the lovably irritating Madea in all those Madea-centric films. Now, the Hollywood Reporter is saying that the actor will play Alex Cross, the James Patterson-created character that Morgan Freeman previously played in "Kiss the Girls" and "Along Came a Spider." (Check out my fun interview with Perry for "Madea Goes to Jail" right here)

It's an ambitious gambit for Perry, and way to go for trying to defy gravity by deciding to play the detective-psychologist. And it's not even a comedy!

Qed has announced that Patterson is co-writing a draft of the script with Kerry Williamson, and will be polished by Marc Moss. Rob Cohen ("The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor") will direct. (Check out my interview with Cohen for "The Mummy" right here)
