As the year draws to a close, Warner Bros. is beginning to look forward, as they’ve provided a few new images and synopses for choice options in their 2012 slate. This crop, only a small portion of their offerings for the next twelve months, consists of Bullet to the Head, Rock of Ages, Project X, and The Apparition. Nothing exhibited here is a big revelation for those who’ve been following the films for a few months — although I did learn that a movie titled “The Apparition” is coming out — but a new picture or two never hurt anybody. Now, let’s get down to business.
Up above you can see the picture for Bullet; you can read the specifics below.
In theaters on April 13

Oren Moverman has been a screenwriter for more than ten years, but it was always his desire to direct. "That was always the goal," he tells senior editor Daniel Montgomery, "I just took the wrong turn." He was able to correct course with "The Messenger," his 2009 drama about casualty notification officers in the Us military. Moverman, who co-wrote the film with Alessandro Camon, took the reins after previously attached directors (including Ben Affleck and the late Sydney Pollack) left the project, and the first time was the charm. Moverman and Camon were Oscar-nominated for their original screenplay, and Woody Harrelson earned a Best Supporting Actor bid for his role as an alcoholic Army captain. This year, Moverman released his second film, "Rampart," which had an Oscar-qualifying run in November in advance of a wide release on Jan. 27. Harrelson was the director's first choice to play Dave Brown, a corrupt Lapd officer swe. »
Earlier this year, the new action flick Bullet to the Head, formerly known as Head Shot, had some issues locking down a director after The Warriors and 48 Hrs. director Walter Hill replaced Wayne Kramer on the film after creative differences. But now we have a first look at the film starring Sylvester Stallone as a hitman who teams up with a NYC detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from devastated New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of Washington, D.C. If memory serves correctly, this is the first time we've seen Stallone wield an axe, and that may be villain Jason Momoa facing him. See it below! Here's the first look at Sylvester Stallone in Bullet to the Head courtesy of ComingSoon: Bullet to the Head is directed by Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hrs.) and written by Alessandro Camon (The Messenger) with Sylvester Stallone playing a »

An all-star cast brings this powerful war film to life when The Messenger is released in incredible high definition Blu-ray™ and DVD from 3rd October. We have three copies of the Blu-ray to give away.
Whilst recovering at home from a severe injury he sustained whilst in combat in Iraq, U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Will Montgomery (Ben Foster – X-Men: The Last Stand) is reluctantly posted to the forces’ Casualty Notification Office, whose heart-rendering job it is to inform families that their relatives have died in combat.
With a sterling cast including Oscar nominated Woody Harrelson* (No Country For Old Men) as Captain Tony Stone and Golden Globe winner Steve Buscemi** (The Big Lebowski) as grieving father Dale Martin, this Academy Award nominated*** drama highlights the often ignored aftermath of war and the devastating effect it has not only on the soldiers but also on the families left behind.

Courtesy of Twitch Films: We are told that production wrapped on the film yesterday and while they began with a script adapted from the graphic novel by The Messenger scribe Alessandro Camon they ended with a draft written by Stallone himself. Whether this was a polish or a full rewrite is not clear but Stallone's fingerprints are very much on the script. As for the story itself, for those unfamiliar, Stallone plays an aging hitman who teams with a young cop (Sung Kang) to bring down a common enemy. Bullet To The Head is currently set for an April 13, 2012 release. Stallone who is quite the writer, make that quite the bad writer, has decided to make sure that the adaption of the french graphic novel, Du plomb dans la tête (or, Bullet to the Head) has no shot of being good. I know Stallone was nominated for an oscar for »
Over the past five years, Sylvester Stallone has taken charge of his movies by writing, directing and starring, but for his next movie, the action flick Bullet to the Head (formerly referred to as Headshot), Stallone will take a break from multi-tasking and play a New Orleans hitman who partners with a New York cop to get revenge on the men that killed their respective partners.
Walter Hill (48 Hours, Warriors) is directing the movie, which was adapted from the French graphic novel Du plomb dans la tête (or, Bullet to the Head) by screenwriter Alessandro Camon (The Messenger). Production on Bullet to the Head began in late June, and will require a quick post-production schedule to make the April 13, 2012, release date Warner Bros. has just set for the movie.

Israeli-born writer-director Oren Moverman isn't just the owner of one of the best bald heads this side of Greg Mottola,, he's also becoming one of the most in-demand screenwriters around. Having gotten early credits on the likes of "Jesus' Son," "Married Life" and Todd Haynes' "I'm Not There," Moverman broke out with his 2009 directorial debut "The Messenger," which saw him, co-writer Alessandro Camon and star Woody Harrelson all nominated for Oscars. His follow-up "Rampart" is one of our most eagerly anticipated films at Toronto this year, and he's taken a number of high-profile screenwriting jobs of late, including biopics… »
Sylvester Stallone’s new movie may not have a name yet, but the actors are piling on.
According to Variety, Christian Slater, Holt McCallany and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje have joined the cast. The movie is based on the comic book “Bullet to the Head,” though it seems the film will end up with a different title. The story is about a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) who helps a police officer kill the people who killed their partners.
Slater will play a handler and McCallany will play another police officer. It sounds as if Akinnuoye-Agbaje will have the juiciest role, because he gets to play the villain. His character will be taking advantage of the most poverty-stricken parts of New Orleans that have been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.

Yeah, that’s the same project that we already wrote about, but it’s always the perfect time for this kind of news, right?
So, Slater, Akinnuoye-Agbaje and McCallany will join previously announced Sylvester Stallone, who is set to star as “a New Orleans hit-man who teams up with a New York cop, played by Sung Kang, to take down the killers of their respective partners.”
According to the latest reports, Slater is now on board to play a local handler who acts as a middleman, while McCallany will play a dirty cop who’s partners with Kang. »
Christian Slater, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Lost") and Holt McCallany ("Below") have all joined the Sylvester Stallone-led cast of Walter Hill's untitled action-thriller at Warner Bros. Pictures, Dark Castle Entertainment, Im Global and After Dark Films says Variety.
Slater will play a local handler who acts as a middleman, McCallany will play a dirty cop who's partners with Kang.
Akinnuoye-Agbaje is set to play the main villain, a powerful attorney who's trying to cover up his scam to exploit poor neighborhoods that have been ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.

The movie, at one point called This is Forty, won't follow the characters played by Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen but will instead focus on Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd, who played Heigl's sister and brother-in-law in the 2007 comedy. McCarthy has been cast as the mother of another new cast member, Super 8's fireworks-obsessed Ryan Lee, who attends school with Rudd and Mann's children, played by Mann and Apatow's real-life children Iris and Maude Apatow. The two Apatow kids are likely working on this movie as well, though their names were not included in the report.
Production on the spin-off has already begun, with Apatow (Judd) using his Twitter account to release a photo from the set that showed Rudd on his cell phone. No sign of cast members Albert Brooks, »

Variety is reporting that Lost actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Christian Slater, and Lights Out star Holt McCallany have all been cast in the next film from Walter Hill, which is set to star Sylvester Stallone. The three of them are in villainous roles, with Akinnuoye-Agbaje playing the lead antagonist, “a powerful attorney who’s trying to cover up his scam to exploit poor neighborhoods that have been ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.” Slater is “a local handler who acts as a middleman,” and McCallany has the part of “a dirty cop who’s partners with Kang.”
That last part is a reference to Sung Kang, an actor from the Fast and Furious movies who has now been confirmed to be the replacement for Thomas Jane. The latter was originally cast as the second lead, which is that of a New York City cop who teams up with Stallone’s New Orleans hitman »

Sylvester Stallone stars as a hitman who must team up with a New York City cop (Sung Kang) to take down a common enemy. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje will play the man they are both after, a powerful attorney who has covered up a scam to exploit poor neighborhoods in New Orleans. Holt McCallany is locked in as a dirty cop who eventually strays from the right side of the force, while Christian Slater will play a middleman of sorts.
The screenplay by Alessandro Camon is based on the popular graphic novel Bullet to the Head, by Matz and Colin Wilson. The Untitled Sylvester Stallone/Walter Hill Project will head into production later this summer.
The film formerly called Headshot just got a shot of Slater. Christian Slater, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Holt McCallany have all joined the cast of the now-untitled movie that Walter Hill will direct based upon the graphic novel Bullet to the Head. In addition, we've got confirmation that Sung Kang (Fast Five) will play the sidekick role to Sylvester Stallone -- i.e., the part that Thomas Jane was initially hired to play . Here's the recap of the basic plot of the Alessandro Camon script (which Walter Hill was rewriting) as we've previously reported it: [Stallone 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. »

Thomas Jane isn't a particularly cautious guy when acting as an interview subject, which is what makes him so much fun to talk to. (See also: Shia Labeouf .) And he's certainly got stuff to talk about now, because until recently he was meant to co-star  in the film once called Headshot, which Walter Hill will direct  with Sylvester Stallone playing the lead role. The film has lost that title, and it also lost Thomas Jane at some recent point. The scuttlebutt was that Joel Silver had wanted to follow what he saw as the buddy-movie formula, and so cut Thomas Jane loose in favor of a non-white actor. Turns out that was exactly the case, and Thomas Jane talks about that, as well as his new werewolf movie, after the break. This all comes from Collider , which has a long and detailed interview with the actor. First up, let's hit »

If that’s not an interesting cast, feel free to skip the rest of report.
It will center on a New Orleans hitman, played by Stallone, who teams up with a New York cop, »
We originally thought that the upcoming Sylvester Stallone film directed by Walter Hill would be called Headshot, but its title was changed to Bullet in the Head. It now appears to be without a title, which we’ve ironically learned through further news on the movie, that being in the casting department.
Latino Review has learned that the villain will be played by Jason Momoa. That’s not a name you may recognize, but he’s someone who definitely leaves a physical impression, and that’s been paying off for him as of late. Not only will he be taking the title role in the upcoming Conan the Barbarian remake, but he’s earned acclaim for his performance as villain Khal Drogo in the HBO series Game of Thrones, and this is just his latest big part.
The antagonist this time around is named Keegan, whose actions set off the events of the plot. »
- Nick Newman
So I'm hearing that Jason Momoa, hot off of playing the role of Khal Drogo in the even hotter Game Of Thrones (which just finished it's first season)... ...has been cast in the bad guy role of Keegan in the Sylvester Stallone/Walter Hill Untitled pic formerly known as Head Shot. The story centers on a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) who teams up with a Gotham cop to take down the killers of their respective partners. The film is based off the graphic novel "Bullet to the Head" created by Colin Wilson and Matz. Alessandro Camon wrote the script based off the graphic novel. Sylvester Stallone stars in the upcoming production along with the likes of Sung Kang ("Fast Five"). "Fairly Legal" star Sarah Shahi will also be joining the cast as Stallone's daughter. Stay tuned as more develops... Hasta el proximo capitulo... Source: LatinoReview.com »
