Sylvester Stallone Hit By A “Headshot”

Sylvester Stallone is set to star as a New Orleans hitman in the action feature “Headshot” for IM Global and EMJAG Productions says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows Stallone’s character who teams up with a young NYPD detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans 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.

Wayne Kramer (“The Cooler”) directs from a script by Alessandro Camon (“The Messenger”). Alexandra Milchan, Alfred Gough, Miles Millar and Kevin King Templeton will produce.

Shooting kicks off in May in Louisiana and New York. The film will be offered to foreign buyers this week at the European Film Market in Berlin.
