Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx may be onboard the film version of Kane & Lynch, but according to an internet source, the attached director, former stunt coordinator Simon Crane, may not be.
Here's how website latinoreview described the situation:
"According to my trusted proven source at Millennium, it wasn’t working out with Simon Crane so Crane and the studio have parted ways."
Supposedly, Wayne Kramer (Crossing Over) is in talks to direct.
Is anyone out there excited by the idea of Willis and Foxx starring in a movie based on the sort-of-disappointing Kane & Lynch? Personally, I'm filled with "meh" over the prospect. Even if I thought it was likely that a decent video game movie adaptation could be made -- Spoiler: It isn't -- I don't think I would pick this game to bring to big screen. Although, on the other hand, Kane and Lynch were definitely colorful, "cinematic" characters that could work in a gritty buddy movie with lots of explosions... maybe I'm just not into that sort of thing.
