Stallone enters boxing Hall of Fame, adds pieces to “Bullet”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As Sylvester Stallone welcomed his beloved boxer Rocky Balboa into the boxing hall of fame during a Sunday induction ceremony, news continued to swirl regarding the actor’s next project (which was not a “Rocky” sequel, thank goodness).
Because it already has been announced (and even has a release date), most probably assumed that an “Expendables” sequel was next on Sylvester Stallone’s to-do list. But before he gets the old band back together (pun intended), it sounds like Sly’s going to sneak in a second project for producer Joel Silver.
That would be “Bullet to the Head,” an adaptation of a cult-fave graphic novel that Walter Hill will direct. The project, at one point, was known as “Headshot,” and casts Stallone as a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York cop so both men can avenge the murders of their respective partners.
Empire says “Bullet” will film in Louisiana later this month, with Sung Kang of “Fast Five” co-starring. I wonder if that means Stallone will move right to “Expendables 2” after “Bullet” … and who will direct that sequel if and when it happens?

This Week In Movies by Pete Hammond ‘Pirates of Caribbean’

By Pete Hammond
HollywoodNews.com: It was a week for setting records on wide release and specialty fronts as the Cannes Film Festival (where I’ve been the last two weeks) ended but two of its big premiere titles exploded at the domestic and international boxoffice. Disney’s fourth go-round with Pirates of the Caribbean was on the weak side domestically with about $90 million and the studio apparently was hoping for at least a tad more than $100 million. Poor Mickey , right? Not really since the business is basically international now and this Rob Marshall-directed sequel with Johnny Depp back in his signature role as Captain Jack chalked up the best ever international bow not only for those Pirates but just about everyone else with $256 million adding up to a stunning worldwide total of $346 in just three days. There has been four years instead of the usual two between Pirates sequels and the delay may have affected stateside enthusiasm for the series. Still $90 million smackeroos is a bountiful treasure by any measure. The filmmakers told me they had to find a way to reinvent the series since the storyline between Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley had been played out in the poorly reviewed second and third chapters. Now they have been jettisoned in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides replaced by new characters including Penelope Cruz as a con lady pirate with a past emotional involvement with Jack Sparrow and Ian McShane as the legendary Blackbeard. Chicago director Rob Marshall brings almost a rhythmic quality to the swordplay and action scenes that makes this version move along with more verve than the previous two. Of course Depp is the secret weapon and he never disappoints in the role that brought him a SAG award for Best Actor and an Oscar nomination. Plus he seems to be enjoying himself and even suggests that another sequel should be set on the actual Disneyland ride itself and the characters can just go around and around. He’s kidding. I think. Disney , new chief Rich Ross and producer Jerry Bruckheimer really need this one to work and based on its opening its right in line to become the biggest selling Pirates yet thanks to the rest of the world. It’s B+ Cinemascore rating also indicates fairly good word of mouth ahead even if critics balked giving it a […]
