F. Gary Gray circles ‘Kane’

Bruce Willis is already attached to star in the actioner

F. Gary Gray (“Law Abiding Citizen”) is in early talks to direct Lionsgate and Nu Image/Millennium Films’ bigscreen adaptation of the Eidos videogame “Kane and Lynch: Dead Men.”

Bruce Willis has long been attached to play the mercenary Kane in the actioner, and Jamie Foxx came on to play the rage-prone killer Lynch earlier this year. Foxx worked with Gray in “Law Abiding Citizen.”

Project is penned by Kyle Ward, who is scripting a sequel to “Hitman,” also based on an Eidos game.

Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter will produce “Kane and Lynch” with David Willis, Stephen Eads and Millennium.

In the game and film, Kane and Lynch are forced to pair up and have 72 hours to travel the world and recover a doomsday device before Kane’s kidnapped wife and daughter are killed by the criminals who broke them out of prison. The original “Kane & Lynch” game was released in 2007, contained over-the-top violence and strong use of profanity.

Gray’s credits include “A Man Apart,” “The Italian Job,” “Be Cool” and “The Negotiator.”
