Jamie Foxx is Lynch to Bruce Willis’ Kane in Kane and Lynch

12 Comments

What, another action movie based on a videogame? Sure, why not. This time it’s “Kane and Lynch”, with Bruce Willis already attached to play Kane, a prison death row inmate who is busted out of prison by his old crew in order to recover the stolen fortune they believe Kane took. Foxx will play Lynch, the other deathrow inmate who escapes along with Kane, and who joins Kane as they go in search of the money. The catch? The bad guys have Kane’s wife and daughter, and Lynch may not be such a great partner, being slightly psychotic and trigger happy and all. Basically, Willis is playing the straight man to Foxx’s joker.

Veteran stunt coordinator and second unit director Simon Crane is directing the movie adaptation for Nu Image/Millennium, with Willis also producing.

There is already a sequel to the game, “Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days” scheduled for release sometime in 2010.

Okay, who farted?

    Interesting. I hope they don’t give him the skullet like the character and just make him bald with the goatee. I’m actually surprised they didn’t try and get Billy Bob Thornton, or Kurt Russell or someone. But changing the character’s race doesn’t bother me. as long as the film is balls to the wall like the game.

      Army of Two would make a better film though I think.

    I’m not one to care about white characters being played by black actors of vice versa, but it seems to me that Lynch is the perfect character for Bruce Willis, not Jamie Foxx. The stained, torn tank top, the sunglasses, the busted up face, Lynch looks like an old John McClane with a drug habit and schizophrenia. He’s certainly a complex character, you hate him and yet you care for him like he’s a child; I’d like to finally see Bruce Willis play a character worth his talent. I can also see Jamie Foxx as Kane. I think they should swap roles.
    Yippee Kayne Yay… Jamiefoxxer.

    im not raciest at all its just lynch is white in the game so why make him black in the movie? jamie foxx doesnt even look anything like lynch. they need to get someone who is really crazy like david della rocco from the boondock saints or someone like that similar to looking like lynch so this movie can actually be good

    John Malkovich as LYNCH!!!! Foxx is the dumbest casting I’ve seen in a long time. I don’t like him as an actor and he has no business playing Lynch. Foxx playing a pyscho…na bra!
