Christian Slater could be continuing his action run, with a role in upcoming thriller Headshot.

The Untamed Heart star is said to be joining action men Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Holt McCallany in Sly's new big, beefy blockbuster, said Variety.

The film, directed by Walter Hill, stars Sly and Sung Kang as a New Orleans hitman and a New York cop respectively, who join forces to avenge their wives' murders.

Game Of Thrones actor Jason will play one of the villains, with Adewale as a powerful attorney trying to cover up his scams.

Holt is cast as a crooked cop who partners with Sung, while Christian's character is a middle man.

Headshot, adapted from the graphic novel Bullet To The Head by Alessandro Camon, is scheduled to start filming shortly.
