Prime Video announces release date for Aldis Hodge-headliner Cross

Earlier, we reported that Black Adam actor Aldis Hodge is set to star in Amazon Studios' upcoming iteration of James Patterson's popular detective book series, Alex Cross. On Saturday, Prime Video announced that the adaptation, titled Cross will premiere on the platform on November 14.

Along with the announcement, the makers also unveiled a short teaser introducing Hodge as Alex Cross. Backed by Paramount Television Studios and Skydance Television, Cross will feature Hodge as a detective and forensic psychologist.

The description of the character reads, "He is brilliant, flawed, and full of contradictions. A doting father and family man, Cross is single-minded to the point of obsession when he hunts killers. He is desperate for love, but his wife's murder has left him too damaged to receive it."

Cross also stars Isaiah Mustafa, Juanita Jennings, Alona Tal, Samantha Walkes, Caleb Elijah, Melody Hurd, Jennifer Wigmore, Eloise Mumford and Ryan Eggold. Even before the season 1 premiere, Cross has been renewed for a second season. Wes Chatham, Matthew Lillard and Jeanine Mason will be a part of the second season, with Johnny Ray Gill promoted to a series regular role.

The show is created by Ben Watkins, who will also serve as the showrunner and executive producer.

In the previous adaptation of Patterson's Cross series, the role has been played by Morgan Freeman twice in Kiss The Girls (1997) and its sequel Along Came a Spider (2001).
