Vin Diesel Will Start In Comic Book Movie Bloodshot

Posted by at 2:24 pm on March 9, 2018


Vin Diesel has inked a deal to star in the film adaptation of the Valiant sci-fi/action comic book series Bloodshot at Sony Pictures.

Said to boast a tone akin to the 1980s action films of Paul Verhoeven and James Cameron, Diesel would play Ray Garrison, a soldier brought back to life through the use of nanotechnology and suffering from total memory loss.

Ray struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants (called Chainsaw). The project aims to begin shooting in July and plans to be the first of a potential franchise.

Dave Wilson, who co-runs VFX house Blur Studios with Deadpool director Tim Miller, will make his feature directing debut with the script by Eric Heisserer (Arrival, Lights Out). Wilson has previously directed the cinematics and trailers of many acclaimed video games including Mass Effect 2, Bioshock Infinite and The Division.
