There’s something about Jean Reno that just irks me. Perhaps it's the way he always seems to have this weaselly look about him that makes my skin crawl. Perhaps it’s that ever-shifting accent that makes it hard to peg him down. Or perhaps it’s that he is French.
Anyway, Reno has joined the cast of I, Alex Cross, the film that finds Tyler Perry not directing or writing for himself. Instead, we he'll play a detective trying to hunt down a serial killer named Jack Shepherd, I mean, Matthew Fox. Reno’s role is being kept secret, though you wouldn’t have to stretch that far to assume that it’ll be mysterious and probably of some ethnic variety. Also, he’ll probably say something witty. Because the French do that. Rob Cohen is directing the reboot of the Cross series, which began when Morgan Freeman portrayed the character in Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider. Production is set to begin on August 8th and Summit will release it sometime next year.
