CONFIRMED: Vin Diesel In Talks To Voice 'GROOT' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Following the Fast and the Furious actor's subtle Facebook post, reliable sources now confirm that Vin Diesel is in negotiations to voice Groot in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Check it out!
It was a hasty, precise post on Facebook back in June that first revealed Vin Diesel was in talks with Marvel Studios for an unspecified role in one of their upcoming cinematic outings. And while the Riddick star boasted at the San Diego Comic-Con last month that a big announcement about his involvement was forthcoming, Diesel took to his social network (yet again) earlier today and updated his cover photo hinting that he was joining Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation. And sources of Deadline now confirm that Vin Diesel is negotiations to lend his gravelly voice to Groot, the sentient tree creature and charter member of the Guardians team. What do you think?
“Guardians of the Galaxy,” the next epic adventure from Marvel Studios, is directed by James Gunn from his screenplay, with a story by Nicole Perlman and Gunn, and the film will introduce audiences to a whole new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The all-star cast includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Academy Award® winner Benicio del Toro as The Collector, Academy Award nominee John C.
