Bullet To The Head is from Joel Silver’s Dark Castle, and Warner Bros is aboard to distribute and market it only — maybe making it easier to move around than a studio-produced movie. But the Sylvester Stallone-starrer won’t be released on April 13, 2012 as planned. It is a full weekend for releases, with Fox’s The Three Stooges and Lionsgate’s The Cabin In The Woods also set for that Friday. Bullet, based on the French graphic novel, is directed by Walter Hill and centers on a hitman (Stallone) who forms an alliance with a cop to exact revenge on the killer of their respective partners. Jason Momoa, Sung Kang and Christian Slater co-star. Stallone won’t have to wait long to hit big screens though: The Expendables 2 comes out August 17.
In other Warners news, the studio has changed the title of its Will Ferrell-Zach Galifianakis comedy from Rivals to The Campaign. The release date for the Jay Roach-directed pic remains August 10, 2012, right in the heat of the presidential election season.
