Jamie Foxx is in talks to co-star with Bruce Willis in the upcoming adaptation of the videogame Kane & Lynch: Dead Men. Developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidos Interactive, the story “follows two Kane (Willis), a death row inmate who, along with a schizophrenic killer named Lynch (Foxx), is sprung 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.”
The game was mediocre but always felt like it was geared more towards becoming a movie than actually being a worthwhile videogame. At least Willis and Foxx should be a good pair, and I especially like the casting of Foxx not only because of his acting talent, but because Lynch is a white guy in the game. This means my campaign for Tracy Morgan to play Mario may have a chance after all. [Heat Vision Blog]
Foxx will next appear alongside Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr. in Todd Phillips’ road trip comedy Due Date. Willis is leading a cast of everyone in Hollywood in the action flick Red, which is due out in November.
