BLOODSHOT Writer Jeff Wadlow Has Seen The Movie And Believes "Audiences [Will] Really Like It" - <font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font>

Blumhouse's Fantasy Island director Jeff Wadlow penned the original version of Bloodshot, and the filmmaker has now shared his thoughts on the movie after recently getting to see the final cut...

We recently caught up with Blumhouse's Fantasy Island writer and director Jeff Wadlow to discuss his new horror movie, but he has another film coming out in March: Bloodshot

He penned the screenplay for that in the early 2010s, and director David S. F. Wilson was tasked with helming the version that's coming to theaters. While screenwriter Eric Heisserer has made some changes since then, Wadlow's work remains a big part of that, and we asked the filmmaker whether he's looking forward to comic book fans finally getting to see the film.

"Yeah, I actually saw it for the first time a couple of days ago," Wadlow tells us. "I've not really had anything to do with it over the past five or six years, but it's pretty much the script that I wrote. Eric Heisserer, who is a great writer, did a pass on it and did a great job deepening the characters, but it's a super fun movie and Vin [Diesel] is great in it."

"I think it turned out really well, and I'm really proud of it,"
he added. "It's an interesting thing as a writer/director to have written something you didn't direct, and it hasn't happened to me very often, but I think they really did an outstanding job and I think audiences are going to really like it."

We've not heard much about Bloodshot in recent weeks, but Wadlow clearly has faith in the Valiant Comics adaptation, and it's going to be very interesting seeing how fans now respond to it. 

Are you guys excited for the movie? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section, and keep checking back here for more from the director. The Blumhouse's Fantasy Island (which arrives in UK cinemas on March 6th) trailer, meanwhile, is below!
