Warner Bros. continues to fill out its 2012 release schedule, setting opening dates for two anticipated titles from Todd Phillips and Sylvester Stallone. No, Sly and the Hangover director aren’t working together (yet), but both are in business with WB and will back studio efforts early next year.

Phillips is producing Project X, a teen comedy loaded with newcomers that reportedly takes place in the middle of a house party that has gone awry. Phillips has been shepherding this project to the big screen for some time now, and while it was originally on the calendar for a November 23rd release date this year, Warner now has decided to bump it back to March 2, 2012, according to THR. Maybe it’s a move to give director Nima Nourizadeh more time to shape his footage into something cohesive and enjoyable. Or maybe the studio sees a lack of comedic competition for that weekend, which right now has Universal’s animated Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and Paramount’s action thriller Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Probably the latter.

As for Stallone, his collaboration with the great Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hours) titled Bullet To The Head will open on April 13, 2012. Based on Alexis Nolent’s graphic novels, the film follows a police officer and a hit man who join forces for revenge after their respective partners are gunned down by the same man. Alessandro Camon wrote the screenplay for the film, which co-stars Christian Slater, Sung Kang, and Conan himself, Jason Momoa. And they said he’d never work again.

As for Warner’s, the rest of their year rounds out with such anticipated titles as Wrath of the Titans (March 30), Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows (May 11) and a tiny indie called The Dark Knight Rises opening on July 20.
