Way back in October of 2008, I posted about a French crime comic called “Headshot” that had been optioned by Warner Bros. “Headshot”was about a hitman and cop who, when their partners are killed, form an uneasy alliance to get revenge on the powers that set them up. At that time, I said that I’d love to see an American edition of the comic and that I’d keep an eye out on the progress of the movie.
Today I’m happy to report that “Headshot” is moving forward with Sylvester Stallone playing one of the hitmen and Wayne “Running Scared” Kramer set to direct.
Here’s how /Film describes“Headshot”… In the film, Stallone’s character “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.”
IM Global [the company making “Headshot”] CEO Stuart Ford said…“Headshotis exactly the type of fast-paced, universally themed project that suits our business model. Sylvester Stallone is an international icon and we’re really excited to be in business with him.”
“Headshot” is set to being filming in May and I couldn’t be happier.
