Gerard Butler, Vin Diesel To Land Leads In Kane & Lynch Movie?
Well, that might work.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, accomplished leading men Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel are currently in talks to star in the upcoming "Kane & Lynch" movie.
If agreements are reached, Butler will play Kane and Diesel would play Lynch. It was also revealed that "The Italian Job" director F. Gary Gray is on board for the project, which could be a good fit for both actors in question. Butler starred in Gray's "Law Abiding Citizen" and Diesel was the protagonist for the director's 2003 film, "A Man Apart." The "Kane & Lynch" movie has been talked about for a while; originally, Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx were being considered for the lead roles, and "Titanic" stunt coordinator Simon Crane was going to direct. Obviously, things have changed.
As for the writing, Skip Woods ("X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "The A-Team") and Kyle Ward ("Machete Kills") wrote the most recent version of the script. The last title in the game series, Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days, released back in 2010; if they ever do a sequel, it could easily star GTAV's Trevor. That's how insane those games are.
