Vin Diesel will reunite with Adam Shankman, director of “The Pacifier”, on the action/comedy “The Machine”.

Deadline says Shankman (“Hairpspray”) is in final talks to board the MGM film, written by “Night at the Museum” scribes Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant.

In what sounds like a live-action version of Diesel’s own “The Iron Giant”, “The Machine” centers on “a human-like machine (Diesel) created in secrecy by the Pentagon as the world’s first true ultimate weapon, before the project was decommissioned and buried. Two decades later, The Machine is discovered by a kid who befriends him. When the government discovers he has been reactivated, The Machine steps up to protect the family harboring him.”

Diesel next appears in “Fast & Furious 6″, due out next month.
