Vin Diesel in Talks to Lead ‘Bloodshot’ Franchise at Sony
Vin Diesel is adding to his comic book character resume. The actor is in talks with Sony to star in its franchise based on Valiant’s Bloodshot and Harbinger series.
Created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton, Bloodshot follows a regenerated soldier whose blood has been injected with nanocomputers. His abilities include fighting, healing, cyberkinesis and shape shifting.
Sony is reportedly planning a five film franchise around the properties, with the movies being rated-R and having a style inspired by The Terminator and Robocop.
Diesel would once again be working with his Fast & Furious producer Neal Moritz, along Valiant’s Dinesh Shamdasani.
Dave Wilson is set to direct with Eric Heisserer (Arrival) writing the script.
Diesel will next be heard on-screen when he returns as Groot in Avengers: Infinity War May 4.
