F. Gary Gray Might End Up Directing the Kane & Lynch Movie
We've know for awhile now that both Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx would play the title characters Kane & Lynch, respectively, in the adaptation of the video game of the same name. Initially, stunt coordinator and second unit director Simon Crane was going to make this his directorial debut, but apparently he dropped off the project back in May. Now we have a pretty decent idea who will replace him as Heat Vision reports that director F. Gary Gray (Law Abiding Citizen) seems to be the top choice to direct this action bonanza following Kane and Lynch being forced together on a violent and chaotic path of redemption and revenge.
Specifically, the story sees Kane, a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch, are sprung from prison by Kane's former team so that he can retrieve a stolen fortune. Kane travels to Los Angeles, Japan and Cuba, with Lynch acting as the team's watchdog in order to save his wife and daughter. Of course, nothing is set in stone for Gray to direct this gritty story yet, and other contenders like Wayne Kramer (The Cooler) and Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job) could end up snagging the job. Hopefully this project finally gets off the ground soon, as we've heard about it for over three years! Still excited?
