Willis and Foxx Are "Kane & Lynch"

The Lionsgate film adaptation of video game "Kane & Lynch", written by Kyle Ward is on track for an August start, starring Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx.

The film will be based on the "Kane & Lynch" cooperative third-person shooters developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

IO Interactive also reports a deal in place that will see a comic book version of "Kane & Lynch" published under the DC Comics imprint WildStorm. The storyline, "not for the faint-hearted" will explore the duo's criminal past, written by Ian Edginton and illustrated by Chris Mitten, with cover art by Ben Templesmith.

"...The game starts with a letter, addressed to a girl named 'Jenny', written by her father, 'Adam 'Kane' Marcus'. Kane is traveling to death row after being convicted of manslaughter. Another death row inmate, 'James Seth Lynch', lets on there will be a breakout. When their escape truck is involved in a head-on collision by a group of mercenaries, the two are taken to a construction site, where they are confronted by members of 'The7 including the villainous leader 'Elder Brother', Kane's nemesis 'Younger Brother', Kane's former best friend 'Carlos, and the silent killer 'Mute'. They tell Kane to retrieve what he stole from them within three weeks, or his wife and daughter will be executed..."
