Vin Diesel IS Valiant’s Bloodshot in new movie universe

March 17th, 2018 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Sony Pictures has closed a deal with Vin Diesel to star in the studio’s sci-fi/action movie Bloodshot, an adaptation of the Valiant comic book series. We reported on this news a few months ago.

Dave Wilson, the longtime collaborator of Deadpool and the upcoming Terminator reboot’s Tim Miller and creative director at their Blur Studios, is aboard to make his feature directing debut with the script from Oscar-nominated Arrival writer Eric Heisserer.

Rumours abound that the movie will be in the tone of the classic 1980s sci-fi actions movies like Robocop, Terminator and Total Recall.

The deal reunites Diesel with his Fast and the Furious producer Neal H. Moritz, who is producing alongside Toby Jaffe and Dinesh Shamdasani. Matthew Vaughn and Dan Mintz are executive producers. Andrea Giannetti will oversee for Sony.

The Bloodshot series, comprised of more 110 issues with more than 7.5 million copies sold, centres on Ray Garrison, aka Bloodshot. Brought back from the dead by Rising Spirit Technologies through the use of nanotechnology and suffering 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).
