11/4 - Gerard Butler Circling Video Game Adaptation 'Kane & Lynch' for Millennium (Exclusive)


Recommended Posts

Kane & Lynch seems to be the video game move adaptation with unlimited life points.

The Nu Image/Millennium Films project, which has come and gone several times, has Gerard Butler, who starred in Millennium's hit Olympus Has Fallen, in talks to star as Kane, with F. Gary Gray on board to direct. The move could very well reteam the duo, who last worked together on the surprise 2009 action hit Law Abiding Citizen.

Millennium has an offer out to Vin Diesel to play Lynch, but it's too early to say how that will go.

The game follows Kane, a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch, is sprung from prison to 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. The game was developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive.

The movie adaptation

of the game has been in the works since 2007, with Lionsgate planning on stars Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx, and Simon Crane directing. Gray was involved with one iteration several years ago, but now is back.

The script is by Skip Woods and Kyle Ward. Producing are Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter.

Butler, repped by CAA and Alan Siegel Entertainment, is prepping to star in Summit's fantasy Gods of Egypt with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Geoffrey Rush.

Gray is repped by UTA, Principato Young Entertainment and Del Shaw.

Exciting news and this sounds like it could turn into a possible franchise. I guess now we wait for a co-star and a filming start date.

Here is the link to the video game site for Kane & Lynch and Kane's profile. Interesting news the character of Kane is British. Maybe he can be Scottish LOL

Not sure I like this one especially if Mike Banning is heading towards a franchise, which I like much better and I feel has more staying power. Gaming is something that has a limited market and I would think draw a limited audience. I already have a strong aversion to the violent games that are out there so not a fan of this one at all. JMO.
