Vin Diesel could be fronting the Bloodshot movie with Sony Pictures as the actor has been reportedly been scouted for the leading role. The Valiant comic book series has been in development for a while and was rumoured to involve Jared Leto. Those plans may have changed recently.
Bloodshot centres on a mob hitman who inadvertently becomes part of a government experiment to become a killing machine. Injected with nanites and with his memory erased, Bloodshot becomes an unstoppable force. Eventually though he begins to remember who he was.
It will be interesting to see what Vin Diesel will do for this film franchise, if he’s cast in it. The actor has had a busy year fronting the xXx: The Return of Xander Cage as well as The Fate of the Furious as well as featuring in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 as the voice of Groot.
Starring in Bloodshot could also be an issue as the actor has a number of projects on the burner including Fast & Furious 9, which is currently in development at Universal.
