Although you might think that Jamie Foxx would only be taking on respectable projects ever since he won the Oscar for Ray back in 2005, he’s already proven that he’s not afraid of slummin’ it on occasion. Last year he starred in the revenge thriller Law Abiding Citizen, and he recently announced his intention to write and star in Sheneneh and Wanda with Martin Lawrence. Now it looks like he’s also in talks to star alongside Bruce Willis in Kane & Lynch, an action flick based on the video game from Eidos Interactive.
The story revolves around two death row inmates who are sprung from prison in order to retrieve stolen money for a crime syndicate. Willis would play Kane and Foxx would play Lynch, who apparently is a schizophrenic. He’s also white and has a skullet, but I’m guessing this means there will be a few minor tweaks to his character for the big screen. The movie is being directed by stunt co-ordinator Simon West, who was the second unit director on such movies as Surrogates, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and X-Men: The Last Stand. I’ve never played the game but it sounds like pretty generic stuff. What do you think, will Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx make a good team?
