The big screen version of crime series Kane & Lynch keeps losing director after director. According to the Los Angeles Times, the flick has – you guessed it – lost its latest director.

According to sources close to the project, Patrick Alessandrin, of District 13: Ultimatum fame, was going to helm the project but has left the picture. The film was supposed to go into production this October, but the start day has been pushed back as producers scramble for a director.

Wayne Krammer (Running Scared) and F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job) were previously mentioned as possible directors and are now back in the running for the director’s chair.

The LA Times reports that Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) is also in talks to helm the picture.

Kane & Lynch doesn’t look like it will start filming until first quarter 2011 at the earliest. The movie’s production company tells the Los Angeles Times that “the director has not been chosen” and that a “start date is TBD”.

Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx are attached to star in the film.
