Vin Diesel took to Instagram to tease his latest movie, Bloodshot.
“And so it begins,” Vin Diesel posted along with art featuring himself as the character.
The Bloodshot movie will be directed by Dave Wilson, with the script written by Oscar-nominated Arrival scribe Eric Heisserer, and the tone of the movie has been said to be similar to classic 1980s movies like Robocop, Terminator and Total Recall.
Bloodshot is a central character in the Valiant Expanded Universe, composed of thousands of characters embodying various genres, tones and demographic groups — ordinary people in extraordinary situations rather than gods and demi-gods.
Valiant’s announcement in February also mentioned projects for X-O Manowar, Shadowman and more.
The Bloodshot comic series, comprised of more 110 issues with more than 7.5 million copies sold, centers on Ray Garrison, aka Bloodshot. Brought back from the dead by Rising Spirit Technologies through the use of nanotechnology and suffering total memory loss, Ray struggles to reconnect with who he was while learning what sort of weapon he has become, with the help of a group of other augmented combatants (called Chainsaw).
