Two little chunks of news related to Sylvester Stallone decided to drop today. First off, The Mist’s Thomas Jane has revealed that he’s signed on to co-star with Sly in Headshot.

The film, which recently landed Walter Hill as its director, finds Stallone as a New Orleans hit man who begrudgingly teams up with an NYPD detective following two nasty murders. The pair then takes down all those who stand in their way. As you do…

According to Jane, who revealed the info to the Arrow in the Head podcast team over at JoBlo, he’s locking in the last details of the deal now and looking forward to getting started. "He's a hit man, I'm a cop, and we're just opposite in every fucking way, and we need each other to get this job done,” Jane says. “And of course I'm like, 'As soon as this job's over, I'm going to take you to jail, you know, you're a killer.'"

Based on Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel, the script was penned by The Messenger’s Alessandro Camon, though Hill is doing some tinkering with his latest draft before he kicks off shooting next month in Louisiana.

And the second nugget of Stallone news has the action legend confirming to Deadline what he’d previously said about the Expendables sequel::a[he won’t be in the director’s chair,]{href='' target='_blank' rel='noopener noreferrer'} though he will be back with the team (including, he hopes, bigger roles for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger) in front of the camera.
