Posted on: May 16th, 2010 KANE & LYNCH: The Movie: The Poster

Things have been relatively hush-hush when it comes to the big-screen adaptation of the Kane & Lynch video game. Granted it’s still early days in production – the film has no release date but will hit theaters sometime in 2011 – a poster for the film debuted last week at the Cannes Film Festival. Take a look below:

The film, starring Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx as the title characters, is based on the popular 2007 video game Kane & Lynch: Dead Men for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The cooperative third-person shooter told the story of two mercenaries on death row who are busted out of prison and forced to team up again to retrieve a stolen fortune. the film is being written by Kyle Ward and directed by first-timer Simon Crane.

I’ve never played Kane & Lynch and also have a rational fear of video game movies, so there’s not much more I can say about the film.

Video game fans – could this be a story worth telling?
