At the ripe old age of 66, you might think Sylvester Stallone would want to start slowing it down a little and start starring in more intimate dramas. Quite the contrary it seems. After rejuvenating the careers of several 80s action stars with the blockbuster hit franchise The Expendables, Stallone is set to star in Walter Hill’s new movie, Bullet to the Head.
The film in question looks to be following in the footsteps of some of Sly’s more well known classics in terms of raw, bloodthirsty action. The story follows Jimmy Bobo (Stallone), a hitman who forms an unlikely alliance with a cop (Sung Kang) after their respective partners die.
Director Walter Hill is an old hand in the buddy movie genre, with films like 48 Hrs and Red Heat to his name. Although Bullet to the Head doesn’t boast the most original premise, one can hope for an action packed ride that is reminiscent of some of Hill’s older work.
Check out the exciting new trailer below.
Also starring Christian Slater, Jason Momoa, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Sarah Shahi, Bullet to the Head will release on February 1st 2013.
