The world premiere of Bullet to the Head, the forthcoming action thriller directed by Walter Hill and starring Sylvester Stallone, will screen at the International Rome Film Festival during its run this year between November 9th-17th, 2012. The festival also announced it would present Walter Hill (The Warriors, 48 Hrs, Streets of Fire) with the Maverick Director Award for “master filmmakers who have broken new ground in cinema and consistently stand out from the crowd.”
Italian-born screenwriter and producer Alessandro Camon, who co-wrote Bullet to the Head, will present the award to Hill on November 14th just prior to the world premiere screening of the film, which tells the tale of an unlikely alliance between a police officer and a hit man seeking to defeat a common enemy. Stallone will also be present for the event.
Bullet to the Head is just the fourth film officially announced for the Rome lineup and is scheduled to open in the US in February 2013.
