The film, formerly called 'Head Shot,' is about a New Orleans hit man (Stallone) who teams up with a New York City cop to take down the killers of their respective partners. Momoa, also seen as warrior king Khal Drogo on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' will be their main target.
'Punisher' star Thomas Jane was first chosen by Hill for the role of the tough city cop, but, according to AICN, Warner Bros. decided to recast with someone more "ethnic" in the part. No one has been mentioned to replace Jane at this point.
The film is based on the French graphic novel 'Bullet to the Head' created by Colin Wilson and Matz. Alessandro Camon, who previously co-wrote the military drama 'The Messenger,' penned the script.
'Fairly Legal' star Sarah Shahi will play Stallone's daughter and Sung Kang ('Fast Five') has also been cast.
