Jason Momoa To Go Up Against Sylvester Stallone In Walter Hill's New Flick

The new Walter Hill movie, formally known as Headshot, is about a New Orleans hitman (Sylvester Stallone) who teams up with a New York city cop to take down the criminal that killed their respective partners. With the role of the police officer expected to go to a tough guy (Tom Jane originally had the part before he was fired for being white), one would think that the film's villain would have to be a really tough guy. How does Conan The Barbarian suit you?

Latino Review has learned from an unnamed source that Jason Momoa, who plays Conan in the upcoming Marcus Nispel remake, will play the main baddie, named Keegan, in the project. In addition to Stallone, the film will also star Fast Five's Sung Kang and Sarah Shahi, who will be playing Stallone's daughter. In addition to being the new Conan, Momoa plays Khal Drogo in the hit series Game of Thrones on HBO (which just finished its first season) and Ronon Dex on Stargate: Atlantis. The movie is scheduled to go into production this month in Louisiana.

While I personally think that the Conan The Barbarian trailers are pretty stupid, they do, at the very least, show that Momoa can kick an ass or two. Should this story be true, it will be interesting to see how how the battle goes down between him and Stallone. Should make for some pretty cool action sequences.
