Actor Thomas Jane is famous for many things: Wanting his kids back, being a homeless dad, and I believe he appeared on “Arrested Development.” Now, he can add “Sylvester Stallone‘s co-star in Headshot” to his list of accomplishments. The movie, which, excitingly enough, will be directed by action auteur Walter Hill, who’s also rewriting the script. Here’s what Jane had to say about it:

“He’s a hitman, I’m a cop, and we’re just opposite in every f*cking way, and we need each other to get this job done. And of course I’m like, ‘As soon as this job’s over, I’m going to take you to jail, you know, you’re a killer.”

Geez, calm down, Tom Jane. Anyway, this sounds pretty cool, especially with Walter Hill behind the camera. It might turn out to be pretty good, even if Jane is just doing it for his kids. (Arrow in the Head)

Stallone Eyes Walter Hill As His Rebound Director For ‘Headshot’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/stallone-eyes-walter-hill-as-his-rebound-director-for-headshot/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/stallone-eyes-walter-hill-as-his-rebound-director-for-headshot/#comments Wed, 06 Apr 2011 19:54:17 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205662 Sly could have waited a few days at least out of consideration for Wayne Kramer's feelings, but that's just not who Sly is.

Sylvester Stallone is all business. Less that 24 hours after axing Wayne Kramer from Headshot, he has already held a meeting with Walter Hill, who is an action director from a bygone, but fondly-remembered era. His work includes 48 Hours and the cult classic The Warriors. The premise of Headshot sounds pretty rote (A young NYC cop teams up with an older New Orleans hitman (Sly)), so any departure from the norm sounds appealing for this project.

In light of this rapid-fire meeting, it would seem that Sly & Co. are serious about sticking to their production schedule, which would have shooting begin in the next two months.

Let’s hope that the producers of Headshot take a few lessons from last year’s failed Cop Out, and realize that it takes more than just an odd couple to entertain us today. That shit may have gone over in the 80′s, but we’re a more sophisticated audience today.

WINNING! (Deadline)

It looks like his next will pay homage to formulaic, generic cop action dramas.

With The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone paid homage to the gritty, bizarrely-cast, shoot ‘em up action flicks of the 1980′s. It looks like his next will pay homage to formulaic, generic cop action dramas.

Stallone has signed on for Headshot (with a Montegrappa pen, of course), in which he “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.”

If movies have taught me anything, it’s that young NYPD detectives have total jurisdiction over the dingy back alleys of New Orleans and the power corridors of Washington, D.C. I have a feeling that someone’s going to be handing over their badge at some point in this film. Probably a half an hour before the credits roll. (THR)
