It might be a little bit easier to convince your significant other to watch a big-screen adaptation of the video game “Kane & Lynch” if Hollywood heartthrobs Gerard Butler (Kane) and Vin Diesel (Lynch) are attached as the leads. According to Indiewire.com the action stars are in talks to portray the deadly duo. Reports suggest that Lionsgate initially planned to pair Bruce Willis with Jamie Foxx as the stars and Simon Crane to serve behind the lens. Gary Gray is now onboard to helm the project and hopefully he will reunite with Butler and Diesel. They worked together in the 2009 thriller “Law Abiding Citizen”. Skip Woods and Kyle Ward penned the scripts for the brutal game movie, with Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter as producers.
