According to a report by Latinoreview.com, Simon Crane has abandoned the upcoming Kane & Lynch movie-adaptation, leaving the project without a director only two months before the film is slated to enter production. Simon Crane, former stunt director for “GoldenEye”, “Titanic” and “The World is Not Enough”, was originally attached to direct the movie based on the third-person shooter by IO Interactive.
The film is currently set for a release in 2011, with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx are attached as the eponymous Kane & Lynch, respectively. According to the same report, the studio is currently in talks with Wayne Kramer, after director F. Gary Gray (“The Italian Job”, “A Man Apart”) passed up earlier this week. Wayne Kramer is known for directing “Crossing Over” and “Running Scared.”
