'Collateral' and 'The Soloist' star Jamie Foxx will play the violent James Lynch alongside Bruce Willis in the video game adaptation of IO Interactive's 2007 shooter Kane & Lynch, according to the movie's screenwriter Kyle Ward on Twitter.
"It's not going to have every sequence from the game," producer Adrian Askarieh previously explained "but it's essentially the story of a mercenary teaming up with a schizophrenic psychopath to save his wife and daughter." Bruce Willis--playing family man Kane--has "called it one of the best action scripts he's ever read," Askarieh says.
The video game's sequel Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days was recently dated for August 24, 2010. Our eternal thanks to Shacker and Kyle Ward fan Nicholas Bredon for the tip.
