Sarah Shahi Joins Sly Stallone in New Action Thriller

"Fairly Legal" star Sarah Shahi will play Sylvester Stallone's daughter in director Walter Hill's upcoming action thriller that was previously titled "Headshot," reports Variety.

Stallone will play a New Orleans hitman who teams with a New York City detective in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of Washington, D.C. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.

Sung Kang (Fast Five) co-stars in the Warner Bros. Pictures release, which starts filming later this month in Louisiana.

The film is based on Matz and Colin Wilson's graphic novel "Bullet to the Head" and was adapted by Alessandro Camon.
