WB set to distribute director Walter Hill's Bullet to the Head, formerly known as Headshot

Jun. 13, 2011by:

A press release went out this past weekend regarding the Walter Hill/Sylvester Stallone cop revenge thriller, BULLET TO THE HEAD. With Joel Silver's Dark Castle production shingle on board officially, Warner Bros. has now come along to handle distribution of the final product.

Formerly known as HEADSHOT, the project is apparently based on a series of graphic novels from writer "Matz" (a.k.a. Alexis Nolent). The story is about "a New Orleans hitman who teams with an NYPD detective, as they are brought together by two vicious murders. The two proceed to take on all who stand in their way." As reported by our bros over at Arrow in the Head, Alessandro Camon (THE MESSENGER) is still writing on the project, working closely with Walter Hill (contrary to prior reports that the director had taken over the screenwriting completely).

And what of actor Thomas Jane, one of the few men ever to not get a job on account of being white? The press release for BULLET TO THE HEAD makes no mention of him at all, but does reveal the name Sung Kang (FAST FIVE) as a newly cast supporting player in an unspecified role. The last we heard of Jane was in a non-comment made to AITH about the issue of his being dumped for someone more "ethnic": "No comment, but I can tell you this, we have a classic with me & Sly & Hill. Script is tailor made for us all."

I'm happy the project is moving forward, but I'm still hoping Joel Silver will see the light of day and shut the f*ck up. Let Hill do what he wants!

What's with the lame new title? My excitement for this has dwindled substantially. It had the perfect combination of people until it was of course messed with. Walter Hill and Sylvester Stallone certainly hold my interest, but if the wrong person is put into the other role, the movie could still turn out to be utter shit.

What's with the hat in your avatar?

Stallone should just pull a Downey Jr. and play the black cop himself. It would be like the greatest movie of all time.

What's with the homo-eroticism of your avatar? Perhaps Matt Damon will replace Thomas Jane. That should make your lower lip quiver and your heart flutter.

The only reason I was interested in this was because of Thomas Jane. So if he is not in it, then I am not seeing this crap.

And I am sure Balboa6 will have an erection after reading this article and make some profound statement about how much he *loves* Stallone.

I love Stallone, but I'm with ya, the only reason this project sounded so awesome was because it was the team up of Sly and Tom Jane, with direction from Walter Hill.

Name one single time I have ever done that. Do it. I dare you.

Questioning your criteria for making a blanket statement about A CONCEPT (read that very carefully) is not the same thing as hero worship.

I think Stallone is upset again. (Walks off to go watch Rambo 3 again).

Interesting. I thought I was simply trying to get you to explain yourself rather than lie. It's not my fault you're incapable of comprehending anything.

I liked the original title MUCH more, considering this one is far too close to the John Woo film 'Bullet in the Head'. Oh, and the whole black/white thing is beyond retarded. It worked ungodly well for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, so why shouldn't it work for guys like this?
