With Sylvester Stallone and director Walter Hill’s adaptation of the graphic novel Bullet to the Head set to begin shooting later this month, it makes sense that casting news regarding the pic would begin to surface. Yesterday, we reported that Sarah Shahi (USA’s Fairly Legal) was joining the film as the daughter of Stallone’s New Orleans hit man. Tonight, Latino Review is hearing that Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian and Game of Thrones) is set to play the film’s villain, a man who is responsible for the death of Stallone’s former partner.
Although it would be wise to await further confirmation before taking Momoa’s inclusion as gospel, I won’t hesitate to say that I would love to see Momoa take on the role of antagonist under one condition: if he brings those dreads with him. For those unaware, Stallone and Hill’s Bullet to the Head adaptation will see Stallone’s aforementioned New Orleans hit man form an unlikely alliance with a Gotham cop for the purpose of taking down what could be Momoa’s character. Stay tuned for more details on the project as they emerge. In the meantime, just picture Momoa’s killer dreads going head-to-head with a revenge-thirsty Stallone and tell me you don’t like what you see.
