In the action movie Bullet to the Head, Sylvester Stallone stars as Jimmy Bobo, a New Orleans hitman who forms an alliance with Washington D.C. detective Taylor Kwon to bring down the killer of their respective partners.
Bullet to the Head is an upcoming 2013 action film, directed by Walter Hill based upon Alexis Nolent's French graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tete. The film will star Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Sung Kang, and Christian Slater. Alfred Gough, Miles Millar, and Kevin King Templeton are producing the film. In the film, a hitman (Sylvester Stallone) teams with a young NYPD detective (Sung Kang) in a high-stakes investigation that leads from dingy back alleys all the way to the power corridors of New Orleans. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge. Thomas Jane was originally cast for the part that would eventually go to Sung Kang. The recast was done at the insistence of producer Joel Silver stating a need for a "more 'ethnic' actor" to appeal to a wider audience.
