Is Thomas Jane leaving Walter Hill's HEADSHOT?
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
This...would suck. I have been loving this idea, and Thomas Jane leaving would really put a damper on that. I don't think that guy gets enough of love. And Hell, Walter Hill basically coming out of retirement...****ing bean counters.A very well-placed source says the word in the agency world is that the Walter Hill-directed HEADSHOT, a hitman flick starring Sylvester Stallone, might be losing its co-lead, Thomas Jane.
What I hear is that while Stallone and Hill like Jane for the part (they must since he’s cast already), the film is now with Warner Bros’ Dark Castle and the studio wants Jane replaced with someone more “ethnic” in order to meet an in-house formula-for-success. The word is that Jane's still the favorite for Hill and Stallone, but the studio is insistent on getting a minority in the role.
I’m all for diversity in films, but it’d be a shame if Jane was booted against the wishes of the creative team all in order for the executive branch to meet some pre-determined criteria for success.
I haven’t read the script, but I do know I like the idea of Stallone and Jane on screen together. Stallone would be an older hitman and Jane a New York Cop that have to team up over the course of the film. That feels like an ‘80s gritty buddy movie with those two, especially with the great Walter Hill directing.

Paul Schneider to Star in Broken Lizard’s THE BABY MAKER; Sienna Miller Reportedly Joins FREAKY DEAKY
wow...just noticed this. Oofa the torment he must have endured.We have a couple quick casting notes to report. First up, Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl) will star in Broken Lizard’s new movie The Baby Maker. While Broken Lizard will star and the troupe’s Jay Chandrasekhar will direct, the script was penned by Ice Age: The Meltdown writers Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow. Per Variety, “Story follows a married couple who fail to conceive after months of trying, prompting the husband to enlist his friends’ help to rob a Pasadena sperm bank, where he made a deposit as a young man. All of the Broken Lizard members are expected to co-star, with Kevin Heffernan playing the protag’s crazy best friend, who hooks him up with an Estonian master thief, played by Chandrasekhar. Other Broken Lizard members include Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske.”
Why the sperm bank wouldn’t simply give him back his own seed is beyond me. I’m also surprised that sperm keeps for that long. Logistics aside, Schneider is terrific actor and it will be interesting to see him play against the Broken Lizard gang.
