According to Latino Review, Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, this summer’s Conan the Barbarian) has been cast as the bad guy in the upcoming, Joel Silver produced, untitled action film… previousily known as Headshot.
Sylvester Stallone will be starring in the film along w/ Fast Five’s Sung Kang based on a script by Alessandro Camon.
This is the first feature film Walter Hill (The Warriors, The Driver, 48 Hrs.) is directing since 2002’s Undisputed.
The story revolves around a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) who teams up with a NYC cop (Sung Kang) to take out the killers of both of their partners by any means necessary. The film is based on the graphic novel Bullet to the Head which was created by Matz and Colin Wilson.
Originally, Wayne Kramer (The Cooler, Running Scared) was attached to direct the project, but abandoned the project after having creative differences w/ Sly on the way the film should be directed. Once Kramer was gone, it didn’t take long for Stallone and Silver to replace him with Hill.
