Nu Image/Millennium and Lionsgate are having a rough time finding someone to direct their adaptation of the Eidos video game Kane & Lynch. Stunt coordinator Simon Crane was set to make his directing debut on the flick, but dropped off in May. He was replaced by Patrick Alessandrin (District 13: Ultimatum), but 24 Frames reports that he has also left the project. This puts previous mentioned names Wayne Kramer (Running Scared) and F. Gary Gray (Law Abiding Citizen) back into the mix along with Antonie Fuqua (Training Day). Production was set to begin next month but has been pushed back indefinitely.
The film is set to star Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx as escaped convicts Adam “Kane” Marcus and James Seth Lynch. Kane is forced to team-up with the schizophrenic killer Lynch in order to break out of prison and find a stolen microchip.
