Jieho Lee is directing Lionsgate's Kane and Lynch. According to Variety, the action heavy film will be based on a soon-to-be released video game of the same name.

The plot of the film stays true to that of the game itself, which is coming from Eidos Interactive. It will revolve around a wrongfully accused Mercenary and a drugged-up psycho who meet on death row. The pair team up to bring down a shady organization that the mercenary once worked for.

Lionsgate is moving fast on the film. It is scheduled to start shooting this fall.
