In a story that will make you want to check your calendar to make sure it isnít somehow the mid-80s again, it appears that aging action titans Sylvester Stallone, super producer Joel Silver, and perpetually underrated director Walter Hill will be joining forces for a new movie. Much like on The Expendables, good olí Sly has pulled together a testosterone-laden dream team of genre superstars, but this time the talents come from behind the camera, which will hopefully lead to a better movie. The film is based on a graphic novel appropriately titled Bullet To The Head and will be splattering mangled corpses all over the big screen pretty damn soon given that shooting starts at the end of the month. It will be produced through a partnership of IM Global and After Dark Films, and released through Warner Brothers. Hit the jump for more info on Stalloneís latest ode to elderly ass-kickery.
The original graphic novel Bullet To The Head was written by Matz (a man who only needs one name) and illustrated by Colin Wilson. Appropriately enough, it was an homage to the type of high-octane action movies that the Stallone-Hill-Silver dream team used to specialize in back in the 80s and 90s. The plot is pure action fantasy, concerning a New Orleans hit man (Stallone) and a New York cop who form an alliance to bring down the killers of their respective partners.
