November 4th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gerard Butler is in talks to star as Kane in the big screen adaptation of the video game Kane & Lynch. The role it would reunite him with Law Abiding Citizen director F. Gary Gray. They also report that an preliminary offer has been made to Vin Diesel to play Lynch in the film, but it is too early to determine if he will take it.

The property was previously planned to be a movie directed by Simon Crane with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx in the Kane and Lynch roles, but needless to say that version never went ahead.

Based on the Eidos Entertainment video game, the plot follows Adam “Kane” Marcus, a mercenary who makes an unlikely alliance with a schizophrenic killer named James Lynch. The duo is forced on a mission to retrieve a stolen microchip. The original game Kane & Lynch: Dead Men was released in 2007 and sold over 1 million copies. It was followed by a sequel titled Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.
