Oscar winner reportedly joins Bruce Willis in game-to-film.

Kane & Lynch (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/884/884973.html) screenwriter Kyle Ward reportedly Tweeted (http://twitter.com/kyle_ward) yesterday that Oscar winner Jamie Foxx (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/912/912236.html) has been cast opposite Bruce Willis (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/912/912513.html) in the feature film version of the videogame.

The news was soon picked up by Deadline New York (http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/foxx-joins-willis-in-kane-lynch/#more-28874), although it appears that Ward has since deleted the Foxx posting (http://twitter.com/kyle_ward/status/10651363443). Deadline says Foxx will play the unhinged James Lynch (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/142/14258090.html) opposite Willis as his partner Kane, with filming said to begin this August.

Simon Crane will direct for Millennium Films and Lionsgate.

Lynch was definitely not black... What the hell?

What?!? I was really hoping they'd stay true to the character. In other words white with long hair and a beard. I could see Paul Giamatti pulling off the look or maybe even Steve Buscemi.

I'd much prefer Steve Buscemi!

I'd much prefer Steve Buscemi!

I think he would be perfect for a sociopathic role such as Lynch. I remember playing through the game and thinking of Steve Buscemi in Living in Oblivion (appearance-wise).
