Now that we’re in the movie-to-game mood in the meantime, here’s one for turning tables: news coming in from Hollywood has Lionsgate‘s movie adaptation of Eidos Interactive‘s Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, PC) starring no other than Bruce Willis of Die Hard fame and Billy Bob Thornton of Pushing Tin and Armageddon fame.
Eidos and IO Interactive’s latest franchise seems to be picking up much hype in Tinsel Town, but will it match up to that of Eidos’ own Lara Croft Tomb Raider? Find out in the full article.
What we’re hearing from Hollywood looks promising for the upcoming movie by Lionsgate, which will be a direct adaptation of Kane & Lynch: Dead Men (Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, PC) idea but rehashed for an often critical movie audience. Aside from Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton taking up the lead roles, Transformers The Movie producer (and accidental Blu-ray lover) Michael Bay will be strapping into the producer’s seat.
Couple those with writer Kyle Ward (Fiasco Heights), and moviegoers and Kane & Lynch fans are in for a twisted, action ride of their life. And it probably should be, as Hollywood’s rendering of Eidos Interactive‘s Lara Croft Tomb Raider, with sultry Angelina Jolie on the lead, stands as the most successful video game-based film to date.
That’s US$ 275 million in the box office to kick out of the limelight. Details on other characters or the movie’s plot is as yet unclear, but we’re hoping to hear more in the coming months. But first, there’s going to be AvP movie sequel Aliens vs. Predator Requiem to wish for this Christmas, and we wouldn’t want to spoil the mood.
