The project on the famous game has been widely advertised at the last Cannes Film Festival. However, a film with Bruce Willis postponed for an indefinite time: the "Kane and Lynch" has no director again.
Back in 2008 it became known that Bruce Willis will take part in the film adaptation of videogame "Kane and Lynch" together with Jamie Foxx.
Despite the fact that in the first month of release in November of 2007, the game has sold over two million copies, performances by products from the company Eidos are not very lucky at the box office. In particular, the "Hitman" was not able to gather in the world box office a hundred million dollars.
Initially, the director of "Kane and Lynch" meant Simon Crane. Despite the fact that he was going to debut at the post director of a major project, but wasn't a freshman in the cineme world. On account of Crane the work on stunts and the second post of director of the film crew of many Hollywood action movies, including "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" and "Hancock"
In May of this year, Crane dropped out of the project for unknown reasons. His place was predicted by F. Gary Gray, but in the end it took a Frenchman Patrick Alessandrini, directed thriller "Banlieue 13 Ultimatum". Filming should begin in October, but work on the project has stopped again.
Alessandrini left the "Kane and Lynch" and, according to the LA Times, the producers are forced to again return to the storyboard. This means that the new director will take a long time to get down to work.
So that the project "Kane and Lynch" will be a very long time on the screen, if ever, the producers decide to run a movie in production. The earliest time when the film will star - the first quarter of 2011.
Movies on games are going through hard times, according to Western analysts. In this fourth part of the franchise "Resident Evil" has already earned the world's $155 million and continues its victorious march.
