Along Came A Spider is a 2001 crime thriller continuing the adventures of novelist James Patterson's beloved detective character Alex Cross. Morgan Freeman (Seven, Glory, Kiss the Girls, The Shawshank Redemption, Hard Rain, Deep Impact) stars again as detective Alex Cross, a recently retired officer who is forced to get back into action when a kidnapper named Gary Soneji (played quite excellently actually by ubiquitous and wonderful character actor, Michael Wincott - The Crow, Alien Resurrection, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves) goads him into going after him and the kidnapped Senator's daughter he's holding. He's soon joined by the guardian of the Senator's daughter Jezzie Flannigan (Monica Potter, Con Air, Patch Adams, Saw). As Cross tries to unravel the case, mistakes are made by the kidnappers, and soon, someone takes advantage of the kidnapper's errors. Watch for Michael Moriarity and Penelope Anne Miller as the parents of the kidnapped child.
