First Posters & Promo Banners for Lionsgate's Kane & Lynch
After waiting for more than three years since it was first announced back in 2007 that Lionsgate would be adapting the video game Kane & Lynch, production is finally starting to gear up. Lionsgate (or Nu Image / Millennium Films) has debuted some early promotional banners and posters for Kane & Lynch on display in Cannes. Empire got a shot of the new banners in front of a hotel (below) and MTV also debuted the first full poster (cropped above - see the full-size here). Bruce Willis stars as Kane and Jamie Foxx stars as Lynch and will be the directing debut of stunt coordinator & second unit director Simon Crane. Check it out below!
Kane & Lynch is a dark and gritty drama featuring two men: Kane (Willis) is a flawed mercenary and Lynch (Foxx) is a medicated psychopath. Forced together on a violent and chaotic path of redemption and revenge, no action is considered too harsh as this volatile partnership is pushed beyond reason. The video game was released back in late 2007 for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, and a sequel called Kane & Lynch: Dog Days is due out later this year. I'm looking forward to this only because it seems like it could an intense, violent, badass movie, but as we all know, video game movies never really seem to work and I fear this may end up a little bit like Max Payne, but we'll find out soon enough. Stay tuned for updates as shooting starts this August.
