Thomas Jane is Joining Sylvester Stallone for Action Flick 'Headshot'
Just last week we learned that veteran filmmaker Walter Hill was suddenly stepping up to replace Wayne Kramer as the director for a new action flick called Headshot starring Sylvester Stallone. The story will see Stallone as a hitman pairing with a young NYPD detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of Washington, D.C. The unlikely duo is fueled by the death of each of their partners and are willing to sacrifice everything for revenge. Now JoBlo has learned that Thomas Jane will star as the young detective opposite Stallone in the film. Read on!
Speaking to JoBlo's Arrow in the Head podcast, Jane revealed the news himself, calling the script "fantastic." He went on to speak about Stallone and the dynamic between their characters, "He's a hitman, I'm a cop, and we're just opposite in every fucking way, and we need each other to get this job done. 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.'" So it sounds like Jane's character doesn't have a problem getting revenge with Stallone, but still wants to arrest him for his hitman killings. Will we see Jane and Stallone face-off in the end? We'll have to wait and see. Sound good?
