LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jamie Foxx 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.
Nu Image/Millenium is in talks to finance and produce, with Lions Gate distributing.
Foxx has been circling the project for a few weeks, but word leaked Wednesday night when screenwriter Kyle Ward, who wrote the adaptation, tweeted Foxx’s involvement.
The story 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.
The game was developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidor Interactive.
