Los Angeles: Sylvester Stallone will play a New Orleans hitman, who teams up with a cop in action film `Headshot`.

The action star, who was last seen in `The Expendables`, plays a hitman who unites with a NYPD 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 DC.

IM Global and Alexandra Milchan`s EMJAG Prods are developing the project, which will be directed by Wayne Kramer from a script by Alessandro Camon. Kramer begins shooting in
May in Louisiana and New York, the Hollywood Reporter said.

IM Global CEO Stuart Ford is executive producing the project.

"Headshot is exactly the type of fast-paced, universally themed project that suits our business model. Sylvester Stallone is an international icon and we`re really excited to be in business with him," Ford said.
