Films based on video-games has quickly becoming a popular fad and now we have a long gestating adaptation back in the works. The Kane and Lynch video game follows Adam "Kane" Marcus, a mercenary who makes an unlikely alliance with a schizophrenic killer named James Lynch. The duo is forced on a mission to retrieve a stolen microchip. Gerard Butler is being eyed to play Kane and it's being reported but not confirmed that Vin Diesel is being courted to play Lynch.
The film was in development a few years ago with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx lined up to play the duo, with Simon Crane directing. That project failed to launch however and now we have our two new potential leads as well as our director. If locked, Butler would be reuniting with "Law Abiding Citizen" helmer G. Gary Gray.
The script was penned by Skip woods and Kyle Ward. We'll keep you posted as this story develops.
