Stallone's Bullet to the Head gets Jason Momoa and Sarah Shahi

Jun. 21, 2011by: Dave Davis

With HBO's "Game of Thrones" first season just coming to its riveting conclusion, imposing horselord (and impending CONAN THE BARBARIAN) Jason Momoa should be getting plenty of work, especially if the role makes use of his physique and growl.

So the Khal should make an excellent villain for Sylvester Stallone -- Latino Review says Momoa will be the bad guy in the currently untitled action-thriller (previously known as HEADSHOT), based on the recent comic BULLET TO THE HEAD (which may end up the eventual title).

Directed by Walter Hill (48 HRS, THE WARRIORS) and produced by veteran Joel Silver (LETHAL WEAPON, THE MATRIX), the story follows Sly's hitman and a younger cop who team up to track down the men who killed their respective partners.

Sung Kang (FAST FIVE) is also starring (possibly in the lawman role, which was briefly occupied by Thomas Jane before the producers reportedly wanted more ethnic diversity), and lust-worthy TV regular Sarah Shahi ("Life", "Fairly Legal") has also joined the production as Sly's daughter.

Extra Tidbit: Looks like I'll be picking up George R.R. Martin's books, since I don't think I can wait until next spring for more "Thrones". Such irresistibly juicy stuff.

Dammit! Just bring Thomas Jane back already and this cast would be bangin. Speaking of, Shahi was great (and hot) in the under rated (and under watched) LIFE.

I'm not thrilled that Jane is no longer in this movie, but as a Stallone fan, I will still see it in the theater,....In Sly, I trust.

trust Sly? You know, I'd normally agree -- but the way things are going with this one, it doesn't look like Sly or Hill are the ones in charge in the slightest.

I'm confused. They wanted more diversity and so they thought they could replace Jane with a guy who's said 5 lines in his last film? I could see Watanabe as the lawman.

*damn that girls got a nice ass

This movie can screw itself. The only reason that I was interested was because of the great, ass kicking Thomas Jane.

Now that he is out, I don't care anymore. I hope the movie flops.

Eff This

No Thomas Jane, No $$$ from me. It's as simple as that. Sucks for the rest of the cast, though, as their casting announcements are being overshadowed by the fact that Joel Silver kicked Jane out for being white. But whatever. Until Jane returns with an apology from Silver for being a dick, I will NEVER see this movie. And if I do see it in theaters, it'll be after sneaking in and NOT PAYING FOR IT.

I'm happy about Momoa being the bad guy, and I've got nothing against Sung Kang (although I don't get why everybody thinks he's supercool - he's pretty bland in the F&F films). But if Kang really is replacing Jane, fuck this film. Not even an R-rating will make me see this in the theater if that is the case.

DAVE DAVIS

where exactly did you get 'Sang Kung is playing the role once occupied by Tom Jane'?

First of all, his name's Sung Kang. And secondly, as far as I know, there has been no official announcement for the role Jane was supposed to play, and Kang's role remains unknown at this point, even with the sources you created this article from.

Cheers

@Psyonikx - would it blow your mind if I told you that you can go back and edit stuff? Cause you can, and he did. He originally had 'Sang Kung' and has now fixed his mistake, no big deal.

Still, for whatever reason, is feeding us FALSE INFORMATION with Kang's role.

U's & A's

Hey Dave, you got your U & A mixed up... His name is Sung Kang; & as much as I love me some Tom Jane I like the idea of replacing him w/ Sung Kang. With hulking Sly & Momoa; Kang gives the movie more balance... And this Iranian hottie will be excellent eye candy to all this testosterone.

P.S. Sly should add Tom Jane to The Expendables Part Deux !!!

Its solid casting. Momoa can make a solid bad guy for Sly to touch gloves with. And Shahi...fuck.
But sorry, no way in hell does this movie get my money after what Silver did to Tom Jane. I'll wait for it on HBO.

Heh, -3 within a couple minutes. Hey Joel Silver, stop erasing your cookies every 30 seconds and instead beg the Punisher's forgiveness.

Lust-worthy Sarah Shahi. Definitely!

I'm disappointed about Jane too, but this might still be worth a look for a rental one night.
