When you think of a Kane & Lynch movie what is the first thing you think of… you know, besides, “Why in God’s name are they making a Kane & Lynch movie?” OK, let me rephrase that. What actors do you think would do justice to the Kane & Lynch role? … Don’t say something like a rock and a pile of lynt… OK, this isn’t working. Let’s try again.
The Kane & Lynch movie might not be horrible, as two well-known actors have been tapped to fill the titular roles. Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel are currently in talks to star in the flick, with Butler looking to portray Kane and Diesel looking to portray Lynch. The movie will be directed by The Italian Job director, F. Gary Gray. The script will be written by Skip Woods, who was responsible for… X-Men Origins: Wolverine… uh oh.
This project has been in the works since 2007, but with the movie only getting cast at this time, we likely won’t see the movie until 2015. Will anyone really care about Kane and Lynch at that point? Does anyone really care about Kane and Lynch right now?
