Rachel Nichols is starring in Summit Entertainment’s I, Alex Cross, a reboot of the Alex Cross franchise first launched by Paramount Pictures in 1997 (Kiss the Girls). Nichols will play a large-breasted detective who gets romantically involved with Cross’ partner Tommy Kane.
She tells ComingSoon:
I’m very excited. I don’t think anyone has ever been as excited as I am about going to Detroit and Cleveland… I get a gun! I’m a detective and I’m happy to get a gun back. No more swords.
It’s based on the Alex Cross series from James Patterson, but it’s not based on the book, ‘I, Alex Cross.’
I, Alex Cross is directed by Rob Cohen (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor) and costars Matthew Fox as serial killer Michael “The Butcher of Sligo” Sullivan, John C. McGinley as Police Chief Richard Brookwell, Ed Burns as Det. Tommy Kane, and Tyler Perry as Alex Cross-dresser.
Nichols creds include Platinum Dunes 2005 Amityville Horror remake, Summit Entertainment’s P2 (her first starring role), and Paramount’s G.I. Joe. She also starred as black-ops agent Rachel Gibson on the final season of J.J. Abrams’ “Alias” and played FBI Agent Ashley Seager on the hit CBS series “Criminal Minds.”
Nichols will be seen this weekend in director Marcus Nispel’s eagerly anticipated Conan reboot. She plays a large-breasted warrior monk who gets into what promises to be an intense cat-fight with costar Rose McGowan’s medium-breasted evil witch character.
