Vin Diesel might have his sights set on yet another superhero role! The Wrap reports that Diesel is in early talks to star in a film based on the Valiant comic Bloodshot.
Last year, Sony Pictures announced their plans to move forward with a five-film shared universe based on Bloodshot and another Valiant comic Harbinger. This could be the first film in that series.
Bloodshot is a former soldier who gains superpowers after being injected with cutting-edge experimental nanites by the mysterious Project Rising Spirit. He then begins rounding up superpowered outcasts known as “the harbingers.”
Oscar-nominated screenwriter Eric Heisserer (Arrival) has been tapped to write the screenplay which will be directed by Dave Wilson of Blur Studios. If Diesel signs on officially, he will be reunited with Fast and the Furious‘s Neal Moritz who is set to produce the film along with Dinesh Shamdasani from Valiant.
Following the success of films such as Deadpool and Logan, sources say Sony and Wilson are pursuing an R-rating for the film.
