Warner Bros. Denies Stallone is Editing Bullet to the Head
Posted 03.06.12 by Ryan
Just as it seemed that Sylvester Stallone was taking control of his upcoming action flick Bullet to the Head, Warner Bros. has interjected to set the record straight.
After the studio delayed Bullet to the Head from its April 13th release date to an unspecified date to be determined, Stallone reportedly decided to personally oversee an edit of the movie, presumably while director Walter Hill (48 Hours) was out doing something else. Turns out Stallone is not take over, as IGN received a statement from the studio that revealed Hill is currently editing the movie.
Contrary to recent inaccurate and unfounded reports that Sylvester Stallone had taken over the editing of Bullet to the Head, director Walter Hill continues his editing of the movie. Walter Hill said today, 'I'm currently finishing up and locking reels on the movie — as to the content and style of the film, Sly and I are in perfect sync. I'm delighted with the way the film is turning out and hopefully so will the audience.
Hill recently wrapped production on the action thriller starring Sylvester Stallone, which will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Of course, when Warner Bros. plans to release the movie is still a mystery.
Based on the French graphic novel Du Plomb dans la Tête (or Bullet to the Head), Stallone stars as a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York cop (Fast Five's Sung Kang) to get revenge on the men who killed their respective partners.
