According to reports flying around the internebs, Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx will star alongside Bruce Willis in the movie adaptation of Eidos’ crime series Kane & Lynch.
The news originally came from movie’s writer Kyle Ward, who posted on his Twitter account (via Shacknews) earlier today, "Done deal…Jamie Foxx is in.” While I'm still looking into whether this is in fact Ward's actual Twitter account, the Foxx post has since been deleted.
An inside source told me that Foxx is currently in negotiations for the role of James Seth Lynch, but nothing has been confirmed at this time. This sounds a bit like they’re stalling to make up for Ward letting the info slip out a bit early, but until there is official confirmation, consider this one on the highly likely but not 100 percent side. Bruce Willis was confirmed to star as Adam "Kane" Marcus late last year.
I’m currently waiting to hear back from Kyle Ward’s people about all of this, so stay tuned.
