Thomas Jane has joined Headshot, in which he and Sylvester Stallone will star as a cop and a hitman (respectively) who team-up to take on a common enemy. As was /headshot-lands-director-walter-hill/announced last week, Walter Hill, whom Sylvester Stallone put up quite a fight for, will be directing this action thriller.

This news was confirmed by Joblo, who got this statement out of the actor.

"(Sylvester Stallone)'s a hitman, I'm a cop, and we're just opposite in every f**king way, and we need each other to get this job done. And of course I'm like, 'As soon as this job's over, I'm going to take you to jail, you know, you're a killer.'"

Headshot will film before Sylvester Stallone begins work on The Expendables 2. Shooting is set to take place in New Orleans.
