Sylvester Stallone is currently shooting the upcoming sequel The Expendables 2, but this summer Stallone was hard at work on his next movie, the action flick Bullet to the Head.
The movie stars Stallone as a New Orleans hitman who partners with a New York cop (Fast Five's Sung Kang) to bring down the men who killed their respective partners. Entertainment Tonight visited the set and talked to Stallone, who describes the fights scenes that director Walter Hill (48 Hours, Warriors) has developed for Stallone and his main adversary, Jason Momoa (Conan the Barbarian), whom Stallone says has a physical advantage over him. "I don't think I've ever seen a guy move like this," admitted Stallone, who also discusses his neck injury from the first Expendables movie. watch the video >> Posted 11.07.11 by Ryan
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.
Partnering with Stallone for Bullet to the Head is Fast Five actor Sung Kang, who was cast as the New York cop in July, replacing Thomas Jane. In late June, Jane explained his departure from the movie to Collider. why does Jane think he was fired? >> Posted 08.25.11 by Ryan
We first reported on plans for a fifth Rambo movie back in 2009, when John Rambo was reportedly set to head south of the border to Mexico and fight drug lords and human traffickers in order to rescue a young, kidnapped girl. Sylvester Stallone was set to reprise his role and direct as well.
Weeks later, the plot of the movie changed to one that pitted Rambo against a "feral beast" that Stallone described as "a very psychological film about sophisticated man fighting primitive man." Stallone eventually reversed the plans for the sequel back to the original storyline, about six months before he scrapped it altogether. "For Rambo to go on another adventure might be, I think, misinterpreted as a mercenary gesture and not necessary," Stallone said at the time. However, it doesn't look like Stallone is entirely finished with the character. will stallone return? >> Posted 08.22.11 by Ryan
Melissa McCarthy is going from the Judd Apatow-produced Bridesmaids to the Apatow-directed, untitled spin-off of 2007's Knocked Up, THR reports.
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, who plays Rudd's dad, or Megan Fox, whose role is unknown. The untitled comedy opens June 1, 2012, giving Apatow plenty of time to figure out the title. stallone getting some company >> Posted 07.09.11 by Ryan
Several projects are lining up new cast members, including The Dictator, the latest comedy from actor Sacha Baron Cohen and director Larry Charles, who previously collaborated on Borat and Bruno.
THR reports that Megan Fox and John C. Reilly are making cameos in the movie, though what roles they will be playing are being kept secret.
The Dictator stars Cohen in dual roles as, clearly, a dictator, one that is deposed and ends up in the U.S., and also the goat herder who replaces him. The first official photo showed Cohen in his Dictator outfit, while new set photos see Cohen cheat during a Olympic-style running event by pulling out a gun, and another sees Cohen possibly as the goat herder character running down a New York street with a plate of food.
The Dictator is reportedly based on the novel Zabibah and the King, written by the late Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, and opens on May 11, 2012. Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas co-star. Momoa gets a Headshot, a new romeo is found >> Posted 06.22.11 by Ryan
