"The Air I Breathe" helmer Jieho Lee is in talks to direct Lionsgate's action flick "Kane & Lynch."
On the brink to take foray into action genre, "The Air I Breathe" director Jieho Lee is engaged in negotiations to helm "Kane & Lynch" for Lionsgate Films, which currently is fast-tracking the flick.
Adapted from Eidos Interactive's upcoming videogame of the same title, the film is said to present plot mimicking that of the game and so, revolves around mercenary Kane and medicated psychopath Lynch who team up to seek revenge on a shadowy organization for which the former one once worked.
Filming is expected to start sometime in the fall using either Kyle Ward's script or Lee and Bob DeRosa's that are being written at the same time. Set to produce are Adrian Askarieh and Daniel Alter with Howard Sun serving as the co-producer.
