What Does Bruce Willis Think Of The Kane & Lynch Script?

Last June, it was officially announced that Bruce Willis had signed on to play mercenary Adam "Kane" Marcus, who with batshit insane partner James Lynch is out to retrieve a stolen microchip.

It's been rumoured since last fall that Willis would be joining the Kane & Lynch flick.

Veteran stunt coordinator Simon Crane will make his directing debut and helm the picture, and scribe Kyle Ward will pen the script. The flick will be produced by the guys that brought Hitman to the silver screen. How did they get Bruno to sign on for the flick?

"The script has been incredibly well-received around town," says producer Adrian Askarieh. "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." Bruce Willis knows something good when he sees it!

According to Askarieh, the movie will have the "basic premise" of the game, but the details will be different. "It's not going to have every sequence from the game," he says, "but it's essentially the story of a mercenary teaming up with a schizophrenic psychopath to save his wife and daughter."

Kane & Lynch will be filmed in South America, Europe and possibly Louisiana — "We haven't locked down our locations," notes the producer.

Askarieh is working on a film version of Just Cause as well as a sequel to the first Hitman movie.

    Kane and Lynch is my favourite game, can't wait for the movie

      Dont play many games?

        No. I agree. The game had bugs but I absolutely loved the story. It kept me going. I cannot wait for the movie or the sequel.

    If I made a list of 500 games that I'd want to see made into films, Kane and Lynch wouldn't be on it.

    ...And I'm sure the game is still retailing at $109.00.

      maybe at eb games or something but i picked up my copy brand new for PS3 for $25 in the bargain bin at Harvey Normans. Ive had it nearly a year now and is still one of the few games i like to play over and over.

    Is nobody concerned that the guys who made Hitman have yet to be dragged through the street tied to a horse and then shot?

    Bruce Willis could make horse shit look like a bouquet of flowers
