Bruce Willis 'Set To Star' In Videogame Adaptation

by | 04 June 2008

Bruce Willis is in negotiations to star in game adaptation Kane & Lynch: Dead Men for Lionsgate films, reports claim.

If the Die Hard actor gives the deal his blessing, he will take the role of Kane, according to Variety.

The game tells of a Death Row escapee who is sprung from prison along with schizophrenic killer Lynch.

Hudson Hawk star Willis was first linked with the project in 2007, with Billy Bob Thornton predicted to take the part of Lynch. No mention of the latter has been made in the new announcement, with a co-star still being sought.

Directorial duties will be handed to Simon Crane, making his feature directorial debut, having served as assistant director on Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, X-Men 3 and Terminator 3.

Kyle Ward will be getting a script together, described by the Los Angeles Times as the "hottest" new writer in Hollywood in 2007.

IO Interactive, developers of Kane & Lynch, has had another of its games turned into a movie in recent years, with its Hitman series adapted last November, starring Deadwood's Timothy Olyphant.

Filming on the Kane & Lynch project should start before the end of 2008.
