Once upon a time Bullet to the Head, led by Sylvester Stallone, was supposed to hit theaters last month. Then Warner Bros. pulled it off the schedule amid rumors of trouble in the editing room. But director Walter Hill promised, “I’m currently finishing up and locking reels on the movie—as to the content and style of the film, Sly and I are in perfect sync.” The studio has now followed up on that promise with an official release date. Per Box Office Mojo, Bullet to the Head will bow on February 1, 2013, where it faces the zombie romance Warm Bodies (another movie once intended for 2012).
Stallone plays a New Orleans hitman who teams up with a New York City cop (Sung Kang) to “bring down the killers of their respective partners.” Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jason Momoa, and Sarah Shahi also star in the adaptation of the graphic novel Bullet to the Head.
