Vin Diesel is hitching himself to a whole new franchise. The Fast and the Furious, xXx and Guardians of the Galaxy actor will star in sci-fi action flick Bloodshot, adapted from the Valiant comic book series. More on the Bloodshot movie below.

Deadline reports Diesel will take the lead in Bloodshot, based on the Valiant comic book series of the same name. The film will be helmed by Dave Wilson, a frequent collaborator of Deadpool director Tim Miller.

Deadline - Film - Tone - Tentpoles - Robocop

Deadline says the film will be “in the tone of the classic 1980s tentpoles like Robocop, Terminator and Total Recall.” Per ComicVine, “Bloodshot is a former soldier with powers of regeneration, technomancy and meta-morphing made possible through nanites injected into his blood. After escaping from his masters at Project Rising Spirit, Bloodshot seeks to discover his true identity and other purpose besides killing.”

Bloodshot is just one character in the Valiant Expanded Universe. The character was created in the 90s by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton. Eric Heisserer, who wrote the fantastic script for Arrival, is handling screenwriting duties.
