Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx are on board to play the leads, which is fine and everything, and I mean I only played the demo of Kane and Lynch 2, there was no better reason not to play that game than Kane and Lynch 1, but I can’t remember which of the two white main characters was black. Maybe Jamie Foxx is going to white up for this?
I feel like, in a way, this illustrates how out of touch Hollywood and games are with each other, and the entire world.
A film about two white gangsters won’t sell. Kane and Lynch is the most generic possible title, in both forms. Making money seems like the top priority here, well above telling an interesting story that will stick with you for the rest of your life.
The rights to a film adaptation of Kane and Lynch were sold before even the first copy of the game was.
It’s a shit game and it will almost certainly be a shit film.
