Sylvester Stallone had quite a summer with The Expendables. Sure, it mercilessly trounced the far more deserving Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World at the box office, but it was still an action-packed good time featuring a torso-disintegrating shotgun and Mickey Rourke crying. Neither of those things is bad.
Stallone has been pretty vocal about planning a sequel to his ensemble action flick, but that’s not where he’s going next. First the 64-year-old actor will star in director Wayne Kramer’s Headshot with a script from The Messenger writer Alessandro Camon, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Stallone will be playing a New Orleans hit man who teams up with a young New York City cop in the investigation of two murders, a search which eventually leads them to Washington, D.C.
I’m completely fine with this. Stallone proved this past summer that he’s still got it. Maybe he’s moving a little slower and talking with a heavier slur, but he’s still a magnetic presence on the screen and he still knows how to kick some ass. Put a gun in his hand, a trite one-liner in his mouth and run him through a plot that makes little to no sense and you can count me in for opening day. Shades are optional, preferably aviators. Anything that summons up memories of Cobra is always welcome.
