While bigscreen adaptations of popular video games continue to be more often than not pretty bad, Hollywood is still trying anyway. Lionsgate is working to get a Kane and Lynch adaptation off the ground, and they're hoping that Jamie Foxx will play a title character.
Jamie Foxx in Talks for Kane and Lynch
Jamie Foxx is in talks to play the rage-prone killer James Lynch in Kane and Lynch: Dead Men. So who to play Kane? Well, it just so happens that Bruce Willis has been attached to the actioner as Adam "Kane" Marcus since 2008.
In the game and film, Kane and Lynch are forced to pair up and have 72 hours to travel the world and recover a doomsday device before Kane's kidnapped wife and daughter are killed by the criminals who broke them out of prison.
Simon Crane, who is typically a second-unit director, will be making his feature directing debut with the film.
