A while back I mentioned that Sylvester Stallone will star in a movie with Fast and Furious star Sung Kang. And by “a while back”, I mean over a year ago. Not to worry, this update isn’t about how the project fell through, but rather, it’s well on its way to theaters.

The movie is an adaptation of Alexis Nolent’s graphic novel Headshot, but entitled Bullet to the Head. Probably a good change considering there was potential for countless, “Boom! Headshot!” jokes.

Stallone stars as a hitman and Kang as a cop, who join forces for revenge after both their colleagues were killed. It’ll make the dynamic interesting, especially considering how different their lines of work are; there will be cultural shock between the two of them.

Both actors have a strong screen presence and charisma that draws viewers in, and based on the trailer, it shows.

Bullet to the Head hits theaters February 1, 2013.
