Stallone Brings Together Another Action Dream Team For Next Film
Resurrected action star Sylvester Stallone did his best to bring together a dream team of action stars in front of the camera for last year’s The Expendables. Now, he’s pulling together an action dream team behind the camera, as he teams with veteran action producer Joel Silver (Demolition Man, the Matrix and Lethal Weapon films) and veteran director Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hrs.). The trio are setting their sights on adapting the graphic novel Bullet to the Head, with production starting later this month in New Orleans.
This officially-untitled adaptation of Bullet to the Head will mark director Walter Hill’s first theatrical feature film since 2002‘s Undisputed. The original graphic novel is itself an homage to ’80s and ’90s action films that Stallone, Silver and Hill used to specialize in, featuring a New Orleans hit man (Stallone) and a New York cop teaming up to bring down the killers of their respective partners. Sung Kang (Fast Five, Ninja Assassin) is set to play “a key supporting role”, but there is no other word on casting yet.
