Yes, it is true.
The Kane and Lynch movie is going into production and Bruce Willis has been scooped up as the Hollywood force that will power Kane in the upcoming film adaptation.
Talking to Hollywood producer Adrian Askarieh, GameDaily managed to get some really juicy information about the upcoming film as well as some information on Hitman 2 and the Just Cause film.
Adrian has the following to say about Bruce’s role:
“Kane and Lynch will start filming in March of 2010. Bruce Willis will star as Kane, and we’re about to start casting Lynch. Lionsgate is the distributor, Millennium is financing and the movie, after two and a half years of false starts, is finally going into production.”
So how on earth did they get Bruce Willis to sign up? More after the break.
According to the interview, the movie will follow the basic premise of the game and if you ask me, the story for the game feels better suited to a movie anyways. Apparently the real star of this whole production is the script, that was penned by Kyle Ward (who is apparently also busy with the Uncharted script).
Adrian had this to say about the script and how much Bruce liked it:
“The script has been incredibly well-received around town. After Bruce Willis read it, he called it one of the best action scripts he’s ever read, and Bruce is an expert in terms of action scripts because he’s read everything over the last 20 years.”
This is actually sounding quite promising, what do you folks think?
