Wayne Kramer ("The Cooler," "Running Scared") is apparently in talks to direct the film adaptation of the Eidos video game "Kane and Lynch" for Lionsgate Millennium Films reports Latino Review.

Kyle Ward penned the script which follows the mercenary Adam 'Kane' Marcus (Bruce Willis) and aggressive, schizophrenic killer James Lynch (Jamie Foxx) teaming to retrieve a dangerous device as ransom payment to retrieve Kane's kidnapped wife and daughter.

Stunt co-ordinator turned director Simon Crane was originally attached but has apparently since departed the project. F. Gary Gray ("The Italian Job") was offered but passed on the project earlier this week.

Adrian Askarieh, David Willis and Daniel Alter are producing. Filming kicks off in August.
