Casting: Bruce Willis, Seth Rogen, Matt Damon
• Bruce Willis is negotiating a part as Adam “Kane” Marcus in a Lionsgate adaptation of the video game Kane & Lynch: Dead Man, about two death row inmates — “a flawed mercenary and a medicated psychopath” — who are sprung and go on a bloody rampage, Variety reports. That could describe anyone who sat through The Whole Ten Yards.
• Sony has cast stoner-chic actor Seth Rogen as rich guy Britt Reid in The Green Hornet for a 2010 release, Entertainment Weekly says. No word on who will play Kato, but since Rogen is also writing the screenplay, expect Jonah Hill to get a call.
• Matt Damon will play South African rugby captain Francois Pienaar in The Human Factor alongside Morgan Freeman, who’s playing Nelson Mandela, Variety says. The movie is about how the country united under one banner during the 1995 Rugby World Cup after decades of apartheid, which is odd, considering how violent rugby is.
