You know a studio got a stinker on their hands when they refuse, refuse!, to release a movie. That was the case with Sylvester Stallone's actioner Bullet to the Head.

Deadline reported last Thursday that Warner Bros pulled the movie from its April 13th release date with on replacement in place. And this is coming from the studio that released Eddie Murphy's The Adventure of Pluto Nash.

According to Twitch, there may still be some hope of the movie coming to theaters. Their source told them that Stallone is trying to salvage the movie by re-cutting the movie for a possible November release.

Bullet to the Head is directed by Walter Hill and judging from the domestic box office performance of his last couple of movies, he's been in a slump for quite awhile now. Below are the data (from Boxofficemojo) for some of Hill's most recent movies.

Undisputed (2002) made only $12.8M box office but cost $20M to produce. Supernova (2000) made $14.2M at the box office but have a budget of $90M. Yikes! Last Man Standing (1996) made $18.1M at the box office but cost $67M to make.

I can go on, but the point is, Walter Hill hadn't directed a movie that made money in quite some time.

It looks like Bullet to the Head will be another data point in Walter Hill's losing streak.

Can Stallone save movie? You know what they say about lipsticks and pigs...

Based on a graphic novel, Bullet to the Head tells the story of a New Orleans hitman (Stallone) and a New York City cop (Sung Kang) who form an alliance to bring down the killers of their respective partners.
