If all goes according to plan, Jamie Foxx will be leaving the studio to become a schizophrenic killer.

According to Reuters, the Oscar winner is in talks to star in an adaptation of the video game Kane & Lynch. The movie will co-star Bruce Willis. The game focuses on a death row inmate name Kane (played by Willis) who teams up with mentally ill killer name Lynch (played by Foxx), to get back stolen furniture.

While Foxx has been reportedly interested in the film for awhile, word of his negotiations wasn’t revealed until screenwriter Kyle Ward posted the news on Twitter.

Foxx’s most recent film was the Gary Marshall-directed Valentine’s Day.

Kane & Lynch was developed by IO Interactive and published by Eidor Interactive. –Linda Hobbs
