Kane & Lynch was going to get the movie treatment many moons ago, with Bruce Willis and Jamie Foxx in the lead roles. It never happened, obviously. Now, Gerard Butler and Vin Diesel are said to be in talks with Hollywood to make it happen.

NeoGAF has dug up another Square Enix trademark, this one for something called Sleeping Dogs, leading some to speculate it’s a subtitle for Kane & Lynch 3 due to the subtitle of the last outing, Dog Days. A job posting from IO Interactive back in September 2011 suggested that a third Kane & Lynch was in the works, and Ian Livingstone himself said in December 2010 the duo weren’t going away any time soon. You can view the trademark filing here, which lists a January 13 date.

Some more details were revealed for Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days through a fact sheet from Square Enix.
According to Kotaku, this time around you’re playing as Lynch who, after finding peace in Shanghai, finds that it’s the “perfect playground for expat criminals such as [himself]“.
Lynch also has a plan to “make a fat deal where the pay is beyond his wildest dreams and nothing is going to get in his way”. Good to hear.
The game supports online co-op, and like the original, online multiplayer.
It’s out during the second part of 2010.

Adrian Askarieh has told Game Daily that Bruce Willis will play Kane in the upcoming Kane & Lynch movie. The role of Lynch is yet to be cast.
“The script has been incredibly well-received around town,” said Askarieh. “After Bruce Willis read it, he called it one of the best action scripts he’s ever read, and Bruce is an expert in terms of action scripts because he’s read everything over the last 20 years.”
Sounds awesome. Shooting’s set to start in March. There’s more on EG.

Speaking to GamesRadar, Kane & Lynch director Jens Peter Kurup has spoken out about the effect of the now infamous Gamespot review of his game, saying that the team took it hard.
“GameSpot reviewed the game,” he said, “and [the team] didn’t like it one bit.
“I’m not quite sure why, but I remember that review hit the team like a hammer. You can just ‘absorb’ a bad score but there was something in the tone of that review that was tough on people, and on me.”
The 6/10 Gamespot review was written by Jeff Gerstmann, after which the writer was fired from the site, a move that created one of the unholiest internet shitstorms in gaming history.
“It’s a review that I would like to forget, but unfortunately the GameSpot review had its own wicked little life and Eidos, Gamespot and of course the game got entangled in what I guess is best described as a conspiracy theory. And if there’s anything the ‘net loves, it’s a good conspiracy,” Kurup added.
“It was surreal to sit in Copenhagen and watch the game get shredded in forums for reasons and feelings that didn’t all seem entirely based on the game itself.
“I know this might sound like a sissy song of “Boo-hoo! This isn’t fair” and other unproductive thoughts, but you asked me how I felt and I did feel like that for a couple of weeks after the GameSpot review. Pathetic I know, but in glimpses I still feel it, because when I meet somebody who hasn’t played the game, I can be fairly sure that his or her opinion is based on the GameSpot review. It just won’t go away.”
