Yippee-Kay-Yay, Mother F**ker's I Love It When A Plan Comes Together

Variety has reported that Bruce Willis is close to signing a deal that will have him cast as Hannibal Smith leader of the A-Team in the up coming A-Team movie but it also looks like he is negotiating with Lionsgate to star in the big screen adaptation of "Kane and Lynch." The report says:
Simon Crane will make his feature directing debut after serving as second unit director and stunt coordinator on such films as "Hancock," "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," "Troy" and "X-Men: The Last Stand." Willis will play Adam "Kane" Marcus, a mercenary who makes an unlikely alliance with schizophrenic killer James Lynch. The pair are forced on a mission to retrieve a stolen microchip. The vidgame has sold 2 million copies worldwide since its launch in November. Kyle Ward wrote the script. Filmmakers are now looking to set an actor to play Lynch, and shooting will begin before year's end.
UPDATE: Bruce Willis is confirmed to play Kane in Lionsgate's movie based on Kane and Lynch.
