Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with a bit of interesting news from The Hollywood Reporter. Wayne Kramer's Running Scared is one of those movies that I see is growing a fanbase, which pleases me very much. I dug it upon release, bought the DVD and haven't revisited it since then, but I really loved the twisted fairy tale aspect to it. It tried something different and is being rewarded for it by people on DVD.
I also liked The Cooler and who doesn't like Sly? So this teaming makes me very happy, especially since HEADSHOT seems to be a perfect match of star and material. The flick's about a hitman who has to team up with a young NYC detective to exact revenge/solve murders/do actiony stuff.
With Kramer directing a script from THE MESSENGER's Alessandro Camon, I'd have to imagine this concept is going to be handled in a delightfully off-kilter way. I'm also happy to see Stallone taking himself out of his own direction... not that he's bad at directing himself, but there's a certain bigger picture perspective that can be lost when having to juggle too much.
