Jamie Foxx is locking down the last elements in a deal to star in the video game-to-film adaptation “Kane & Lynch” for Lionsgate and Millennium Films reports Variety.
Ward adapted the script from the 2007 game “Kane & Lynch: Dead Men” which follows the mercenary Adam ‘Kane’ Marcus and aggressive, schizophrenic killer James Lynch teaming to retrieve a dangerous device as ransom payment to retrieve his kidnapped wife and daughter.
Bruce Willis has already signed to play Kane. Foxx would seem to be playing Lynch, a radical choice as Lynch physically is the complete opposite of Foxx in every way.
Kyle Ward penned the script and Simon Crane is directing. Adrian Askarieh, David Willis and Daniel Alter will produce while filming kicks off in August.
