Vin Diesel is no stranger to comic book titles and films at this point, and he’s not stopping anytime soon. The next funny-papers-themed flick the actor is tackling is Valiant Comics’ property Bloodshot.
Today on his personal Instagram account, Vin Diesel posted a video featuring the news that production on Bloodshot has begun.
Dave Wilson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) is on board to direct the film about Angelo Mortalli, aka Bloodshot (who Diesel is playing), a former soldier with the powers of regeneration and shapeshifting. He also has the ability to interface directly with technology thanks to a bloodstream full of nano-computers.
The Sony release is (obviously) being fast-tracked, and it’s possibly one of the scheduling reasons why the already announced Silver and Black Spider-Man universe spinoff film is on hold.
There is no set release date for the film yet, but we’re expecting something to be announced before the end of the year.
