Sylvester Stallone

Walter Hill directing, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Sung Kang, the lovely Sarah Shahi and Christian Slater starring. Sounds like a pretty good action movie if you ask me, however, Warner Bros. has pulled the movie from it's release list, signaling that the studio may not like what they've seen from their graphic novel adaption. A new date has yet to be announced so, the exact opposite could also be true and Warner Bros. could be rescheduling the movie to release on a more desirable date. If the movie is pushed to September or February, then it's most likely bad. If it's moved to May,June, or July then the studio thinks it's good.

Stay tuned to CBM, we'll let you know the new release date as soon as we find out.



Bullet to the Head Stallone






Bullet to the Head is an upcoming 2012 action film, directed by Walter Hill based upon Alexis Nolent's French graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tete. The film will star Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Sung Kang, and Christian Slater. Alfred Gough, Miles Millar, and Kevin King Templeton are producing the film.

In the film, a hitman (Sylvester Stallone) teams with a young NYPD detective (Sung Kang) in a high-stakes investigation that leads from dingy back alleys all the way to the power corridors of New Orleans. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.

Too bad, though I never heard of the comic, I'm a fan of Sly, and director Walter Hill, so I was lookin' forward to seeing this film. Hope it's worth the wait.

Love Stallone and Momoa but Warner Bros and ANY graphic novel adaptation is already a bad start.

Warner Bros. really needs to clean house, empty out some of those executive offices and get some new blood in there.

Yeah and seriously, at the point he's at in his career, if Stallone wants a movie to get made, there's hardly any studio that will say no. Unless his project is completely retarded, but then again we've seen plenty of retarded films come out in theaters without Stallone's involvement so just having him aboard is concrete enough investment in film studio lingo.

Yeah, WB has had some misses but they've had their hits too.

I have the graphic novel and its good. Its a great read its only 1 volume. If you read it you would understand Stallone would be a perfect fit for the role.

What are "the power corridors"? I live in New Orleans, we don't have "power corridors".

@Tevii, Watchmen and Constantine were great films so thank you for that waste of a comment. Do people actually believe the shit that comes out of their mouths or what. My lord.

This is the perfect example of what I was talking about in my editorial titled ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! Most users who frequent this site also comment on the articles. If this was an article about the Dark Knight Rises or Avenger people would flock to it, and it would be three pages long, filled with comments, but since it's about a comic book movie based on a french comic, that not many people know about, most people shy away, instead of getting acquainted with something new.

I've never read Bullet in the Head but I'm looking forward to the film adaption, and I'm interested in checking out the comic as well. Hope it gets a release date sooner than later.
