GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Actor Vin Diesel Closes Deal To Star In Valiant Comics Adaptation BLOODSHOT

Valiant Comics characters are finally making their way to the silver screen in the hopes of building a cinematic universe, and it's now been confirmed that GOTG star Vin Diesel will be playing Bloodshot...

We all gave a bemused look when it was reported that Sony Pictures would be building its own cinematic universe based on Valiant Comics, but that's exactly what's happening and the first pieces of the puzzle are falling into place.

Bloodshot will be the first film in this new endeavor, based on the character created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton back in 1992, and Deadline now reports that Guardians of the Galaxy's Vin Diesel has closed his deal to play the lead.

The project will feature Diesel as Ray Garrison, a super-soldier of sorts created by a government organization named Project Rising Spirit. The film comes from writers, Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and Eric Heisserer (ARRIVAL) with Blur Studios alum and long time Tim Miller collaborator David Wilson in the director's chair.

Not much is known about the movie at present, though the tone is said to be similar to "the classic 1980s tentpoles like Robocop, Terminator and Total Recall."

The film will reportedly begin production in the summer and recent reports indicate that Suicide Squad's Jared Leto is being eyed to play the villain. We'll no doubt hear more on that very soon.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing Bloodshot on the big screen? Has Vin Diesel made another savvy franchise choice? Leave your thoughts below.
