Kane and Lynch Movie with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx

There have been talks of a movie adaptation of the video game Kane & Lynch since 2007, but it's only now that the production seems to get in motion. It has been announced indeed that Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx have been hired for the lead roles as Kane and Lynch respectively.

And a few teaser posters of Kane and Lynch have been indeed spotted at the 2010 Cannes Film festival, here's one:
(Click on the poster to enlarge.)
"Kane (Bruce Willis) is a mercenary. Lynch (Jamie Foxx) is a schizophrenic with no past. They meet while being transported to Death Row. When they are attacked and kidnapped by Kane's former team, the ill-matched duo is forced to retrieve a stolen microchip that may hold the key to Lynchs true identity. Based on the best selling Video Game. "

I can imagine Bruce Willis as Kane, but Jamie Foxx doesn't look like the vid-game character. Foxx is a talented actor though, so I want to see his take on the character.

Filming should start in August 2010. So we may expect the movie Kane and Lynch to be released sometime in 2011.
