First Bullet To The Head Image Online
It's Rambo vs. Conan!

With all the Expendables 2 excitement, let's not forget that there's another Stallone action-fest on the way, directed by maestro Walter Hill. Still officially untitled, it was once known as Headshot and is currently being referred to as Bullet To The Head. But whatever it's called, it's based on the French comic Du Plomb Dans La Tete by Alexis "Matz" Nolent and Colin Wilson. And here's the first shot from the production.

Yes, that other guy is Jason Momoa, which means this is a shot of Rambo vs. Conan. Or, if you'd rather, Rocky vs. Khal Drogo. Or, perhaps (although it's unlikely) John Spartan vs. Ronon Dex. And they're fighting with axes! If there isn't an axe duel in Expendables 2, then, frankly, it's on the back foot already. The setting's putting us in mind of Cobra, but we won't mention that. Oh, wait...

The film is set in New Orleans, and it's about a cop (Sung Kang) and a hitman (Stallone) who join forces to take down their common enemy Adewale Akkinuoye-Agbaje (Momoa is a henchman). It's Hill's first cinematic outing since 2002, and Christian Slater, Holt McCallany and Sarah Shahi are also on board.

The $40m epic is currently in post-production, and we should see it in the UK on April 13.

yikes
was Stallone just cloned years ago?? Hmmm, Christian Slater? Is $40 million epic some sort of piss take Empire? It all sounds a bit crap to me but I guess when you've just lit the blue touch paper like Sly managed to again with Rocky Balboa you gotta keep on going. Good luck to him, just hope the botox, hair dye and creaky joints hold up. More

Not the John Woo movie then.
Ah I was all excited thinking this was a remake of the John Woo Movie; 'Bullet in the Head'. But obviously not. More
