Askarieh On Hitman 2, Kane, Just Cause

Producer Adrian Askarieh has spoken with Game Daily about three high-prodile video game-to-film adaptations he’s attached to:

Hitman 2
Kyle Ward (“Fanboys”) will pen the sequel but Timothy Olyphant’s return is unsure due to his commitment to the FX TV series “Lawman”. A lot of decisions will depend on the script which hasn’t yet come in. A rough early estimate is that shooting will begin mid-2010.

Kane and Lynch
Bruce Willis will star as Kane and Lynch is about to start casting. Millennium is financing, Lionsgate will distribute and filming kicks off March 2010.

Just Cause
He’s independently working on the film version right now but things are still in early stages. He describes the property as a “great action-adventure spy movie”.
