Sylvester Stallone is set to star in Headshot, from IM Global and Alexandra Milchan’s EMJAG Productions, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Stallone will play a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York City cop in the action film to be directed by Wayne Kramer (The Cooler) from a script by Alessandro Camon (The Messenger).
The trade says that “Stallone’s character teams with a young NYPD detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of Washington, D.C.
“The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.”
Filming is scheduled to start in May in Louisiana and New York.
