When Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he's currently looking at new movie projects after spending eight years as California's governor, the action icon made it clear that he wouldn't be pursuing the kinds of roles he played in his youth. Getting old sucks, apparently, but don't tell that to Sylvester Stallone. The 64-year-old actor is still more interested in cracking skulls than cashing Social Security checks, and his latest project indicates that he's showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.

The legendary action star, coming off his acting and directing turn in last summer's 'The Expendables,' has lined up his next project. Stallone will star in 'Headshot,' an unlikely-partner action flick directed by Wayne Kramer (based off a script by Alessandro Camon) set to begin shooting in May.

The film finds Stallone playing a New Orleans hitman forced to team up with a New York cop to unravel two murders that take them from the mean streets to the halls of power in Washington.
