IM Global will commence pre-sales in Berlin this week on the Sylvester Stallone action project Headshot.
IM Global is partnering with Alexandra Milchan’s EMJAG Productions and shooting is scheduled to kick off in May in Louisiana and New York
Wayne Kramer will direct from a screenplay by Alessandro Camon about a New Orleans hitman who teams up with an NYPD police officer to avenge his friend’s death.
Milchan produces with Alfred Gough, Miles Milllar and Kevin King Templeton, with IM Global’s Ford and Deepak Nayar taking executive producer credits.
“Headshot is exactly the type of fast-paced, universally themed action project that suits our business model,” Ford said. “ Sylvester Stallone is an international icon and we’re really excited to be in business with him.”
“I’m thrilled and honoured to be working with Sylvester Stallone, whose talent I’ve long admired, and with this amazing creative team, and could not have asked for a better partner than IM Global for this project,” Milchan added.
“This is a terrific project and I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with IM Global and to be producing another major film with Sylvester Stallone,” King said.
Ford brokered the deal with the producers and Stallone’s deal was negotiated by WME and attorneys Jake Bloom and Ralph Brescia at Bloom, Hergott, Diemer, Rosenthal, Laviolette & Feldman.
