Thomas Jane starring alongside Sylvester Stallone in Headshot

Apr. 18, 2011by: Paul Tassi

The dynamic duo of Eric and Ammon over at Arrow in the head have gotten a scoop about a new project using their powers of investigative journalism. Tom Jane was a guest on their most recent podcast (airing Wednesday) and informed the pair that he'll be joining Sylvester Stallone in the upcoming non-Rocky, non-Rambo feature HEADSHOT.

Here's the official plot:

Stallone will star as a New Orleans hitman who teams with an NYPD detective (Jane), as they are brought together by two vicious murders. The two proceed to take on all who stand in their way.

Jane hails the script as "fantastic" and told our boys a little about the role he'd be playing opposite Sly.

"He's a hitman, I'm a cop, and we're just opposite in every f*cking way, and we need each other to get this job done. And of course I'm like, 'As soon as this job's over, I'm going to take you to jail, you know, you're a killer.'"

Jane vs Stallone? Punisher vs. Rambo? That's an idea I can get behind.

Tune in to the AITH podcast (their 100th!) this Wednesday to hear the full chat with Tom.

Tom Jane is an underrated action star

Who really needs to be in more action flicks. He made The Punisher better than it actually was.

Hell Yeah!

I love Thomas in anything he's in...from Hung, to The Punisher, to his shot in Arrested Development. Stallone and Jane FTW!

Jane + Stallone = Awesome

I'm not big on reboots but I think Jane would be the perfect lead for HIGHLANDER! Put Liam Neeson in Connery's role and I'm sold.

Fuckin' A! I did not foresee this, but am beyond excited now. I've been wanting these two to work together for a very long time. I second the proposition for T.J. to be in The Expendables II!

I'm surprised Stallone did not want to be the hitman AND the cop. Seeing how he only likes to work with himself over and over, because if it's not about him then there is no point for him to be involved at all.

Interesting. So, I guess you can't comprehend the concept of someone wanting to direct something they've written.In this particular case, he was considering it because they hadn't found a director yet. Every film he has directed so far has been something he's written. Is it really so absurd and vain for one to create projects for themselves? Once again, did it ever occur to you that perhaps when he has talked with other directors they've had vastly different takes on it? Your "opinion" really

Once again, did it ever occur to you that perhaps when he has talked with other directors they've had vastly different takes on it? Your "opinion" really makes no sense. Basically you're saying that writing, directing and acting in a project is vain and shows conceit and arrogance. If Robert Deniro were to do that, you'd be praising him up and down and talking about how talented he is, but of course since it's Stallone, you have to whine. I suppose bands who write their own music and lyrics and produce their own records are vain and arrogant too. How dare they take control of something THEY created.

Dude relax. I was just joking because I knew you would come on here and write a paragraph about being pissed off that I criticized Stallone.

It is as if you are obsessed with him.

How terrible to articulate things in a manner that extends beyond a fractured, grammatically incorrect sentence. I'm perfectly relaxed and not angry in any way. When people make statements that are unfounded or make no sense to me, I respond. It's that simple. Don't read more into it than what's actually there. There is also a difference between correcting someone and being obsessed with the person or subject in question. I have defended MANY other people.

Clearly C_Macleod is a homophobe. It's not entirely his fault though. His parents are probably homophobes as well.

Headshot is always better than a Killshot

And Walter Hill is directing this bad boy right? A New York-set, buddy cop action movie? Hells yes! Take buddy movies back to their glory days of Lethal Weapon and 48 Hours. Before Bret Ratner came along and ruined everything.

I can't agree with this enough! The Mist is my favourite performance of his, and his cameo in SP is my fave cameo ever! (I think I'm a little in love with him ;) )

Dream Casting

There's something about this pairing in a feature directed by Walter Hill that has me so giddy I can barely stand it. The perfect filler to hold us over for THE EXPENDABLES 2! Shit... this flick may end up being BETTER than that!

Shit that sounds badass even though I thought Expendables sucked. And please don't thumb me down for saying Expendables sucked. It could have been a lot better, don't you agree?

The testosterone level is now at code red with Jane joining up with Stallone.

Jane needs to be in more films. I'm eagerly anticipating Hung to come back this summer as well.
I really wanted a sequel to The Punisher. Not that shitty, remake/reboot that was supposedly a Punisher flick.

Hooray!!!

I like Sly, but overjoyed for Tom Jane. He hasn't been in there in theaters in like 4 years, with only Hung and his DTV stuff (really liked Dark Country). Welcome back, Tom
