Kane & Lynch – Jamie Foxx to star opposite Bruce Willis

Posted by LiveFor on March 18, 2010

Jamie Fox is in negotiations to star opposite Bruce Willis in “Kane & Lynch,” a video game adaptation that veteran stunt coordinator and second unit director Simon Crane is helming. THR had the news.

Foxx has been circling the project for a few weeks not but word leaked when Kyle Ward, who wrote the adaptation, tweeted Foxx’s involvement last night.

The game follows Kane (Willis), a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch (Foxx), is sprung by Kane’s former team so that he can retrieve a stolen fortune. Kane travels to Los Angeles, Japan and Cuba, with Lynch acting as the team’s watchdog in order to save his wife and daughter.

Hopefully the film will be better than the game and the two roles are nasty fellas so could have some great scenes for the two to work on.

How do you feel about Foxx being cast as Lynch?

    This is terrible.

    I don’t care about them making him black or anything like that, it’s just not right. I read the script for the movie and it bore little resemblance to the game so maybe Foxx is right for their version of Lynch. In the game Lynch is pretty much a dumb redneck, in the script he talks like Shlubb and Klump (the eloquent goons) of Sin City.

    The game wasn’t great to play but the story was excellent and the 2 characters were fantastic. If you watch the making of films on youtube you can see how they deliberatelty made them look world beaten, away from the standard good looking action hero of most games. The new Max Payne has also taken this route.

    Just rename the movie and start a new franchise!
