Stallone to lead hitman pic Headshot

Sylvester Stallone will reportedly lead the new action film Headshot from The Cooler director Wayne Kramer.

Stallone is playing a hitman from New Orleans who is forced to team up with an NYPD officer in the wake of two vicious murders.

“Headshot is exactly the type of fast-paced, universally themed project that suits our business model,”said IM Global CEO Stuart Ford who is funding the film. “Sylvester Stallone is an international icon and we’re really excited to be in business with him.”

Filming is scheduled to begin in May.
