I love video games and would love to see a popular title make it to the big screen and receive rave reviews. Someday the translation from XBOX, PS3, Wii or PC to the silver screen will be good enough to cause Roger Ebert to recant his statement that “video games can never be art.” But I promise you right now this will not happen with the Kane & Lynch movie hitting theaters sometime in 2011. Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx have signed on to play Kane and Lynch respectively, a nefarious duo – one a mercenary, the other a schizophrenic – out for revenge and looking to get their dirty mitts on a stolen fortune. Considering the movie is coming from the never-been-heard of screenwriter of 3 Rounds (a movie I’ve never heard of either) and a stunt coordinator turned director, I’d say this has box office crapout written all over it.
What are your thoughts? Have you played the game? I considered putting it in my Gamefly queue, but it looks like one of those games that would force me to take a shower after.
