Sylvester Stallone to star in adaptation of graphic novel 'Bullet to the Head'

Posted on

Sly is headed to the Big Easy: Sylvester Stallone will reteam with producer Joel Silver for an action thriller based on the Matz graphic novel Bullet to the Head, Warner Bros. announced today. Walter Hill (48 Hrs.) has been tapped to direct. Stallone and Silver previously worked together on Demolition Man and Assassins, while Silver produced Hill’s 48 Hrs. and The Warriors. The movie — which begins shooting in Louisiana later this month and includes Fast Five‘s Sung Kang in its cast — centers on a New Orleans hitman, played by Stallone, and a Big Apple cop who join forces to seek revenge for the murders of their partners.
