ALONG CAME A SPIDER, the 2001 action-thriller prequel to the 1997 theatrical KISS THE GIRLS starring Morgan Freeman ("Bruce Almighty") as Washington, D.C. police detective and psychologist Dr. Alex Cross, who must search for the kidnapped daughter of a powerful U.S. Senator with his new partner, Special Agent Jezzie Flannigan (Monica Potter "Head Over Heels"), will be rebroadcast as the "CBS Sunday Movie," Sunday, Sept. 4 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. (Originally broadcast 4/18/04)
Still reeling from the dramatic death of his partner in a botched sting operation, Cross is reluctantly called back into action when the 12-year-old daughter (Mika Boorem "Blue Crush") of a powerful U.S. Senator is kidnapped from her posh private school, right under the nose of Secret Service Agent Flannigan, who's been assigned to protect her. Cross teams up with the grief-stricken agent to find the missing girl, but when they identify and begin to track down the culprit, Gary Soneji (Michael Wincott "The Count of Monte Cristo), a teacher at the prep school, Cross begins to realize there may be more to the kidnapping than meets the eye.
Lee Tamahori ("Die Another Day") directed the film, which was written by Marc Moss and adapted from James Patterson�s novel. Morgan Freeman and Marty Hornstein are the executive producers and David Brown and Joe Wizan are the producers of the 2001 Paramount theatrical release.
