Sylvester Stallone to Oversee Final Cut of BULLET TO THE HEAD for Possible November Release

     March 3, 2012


Sylvester Stallone is single-handedly trying to resurrect good old fashioned kick-ass action movies. He literally pushed himself to the breaking point on The Expendables and reprised his most famous roles in the films Rocky Balboa and Rambo. Now, Stallone is venturing into new territory with the graphic novel adaptation, Bullet to the Head, and it looks like he’ll be overseeing the final cut of the film. It was recently reported that Warner Bros. had erased the film from its April 13th release date without providing any information as to why or updating it with a new release. Sources now point to a November release date for the film due to Stallone needing the additional time to approve a final cut. Bullet to the Head follows a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) who teams up with a New York cop (Sung Kang of Fast Five) to track down the killers of their respective partners. Hit the jump for more on Bullet to the Head.

Sources for TwitchFilm suggest that the delay of Bullet to the Head is due to Stallone needing to greenlight the final cut and that November is likely the film’s new release window. Stallone is a busy man as always, finishing up The Expendables 2, preparing to break out of The Tomb with Arnold Schwarzenegger and contemplating the arc of Rambo 5. It sounds like the guy could use a break and I’m willing to cut him the slack on Bullet to the Head if it ends with him getting the right cut.

Directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors), Bullet to the Head also stars Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost) as a nemesis to Stallone, Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian) as another possible villain in the film and Sarah Shahi (Life) as Stallone’s daughter.
