Turns out Vin Diesel can do more than just drive cars in a reckless manner, and he’s just closed a deal to star in the Sony Pictures film “Bloodshot”.
“Bloodshot” is based on the Valiant comic book series and has Dave Wilson at the helm for his directorial debut with a script by Eric Heisserer.
The film is said to have a classic 1980s tentpole tone like “Robocop”, “Terminator” and “Total Recall”. Bloodshot is a central character in the Valiant Expanded Universe, composed of thousands of characters embodying various genres, tones and demographic groups — ordinary people in extraordinary situations rather than gods and demi-gods.
Production for the flick will begin in July.
