While the casting of the untitled adaptation of Bullet to the Head has been a little rocky recently, the producers have locked down three big parts with the addition of Christian Slater, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost, Oz), or, as I like to call him “Mr. Copy and Paste,” and Holt McCallany (Lights Out).
Slater will be playing a middleman who brokers the alliance of Stallone‘s hitman and Sung Kang’s cop. Mr. Copy and Paste will be playing the film’s villain, a lawyer with a scam involving Katrina assistance. McCallany will play a crooked cop that is partnered with Kang’s cop.
The untitled movie focuses on the alliance between Stallone and Sung Kang in a reconstructing New Orleans in the wake of Katrina. Allesandro Camon adapted the novel while Walter Hill is set to direct the movie.
With Christian Slater and Sylvester Stallone, this is sure to be one of the top-grossing films of 1991.
