Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious series, xXx series) has signed on to star in the upcoming Sony adaptation of Valiant Entertainment comic Bloodshot with Dave Wilson set to direct, according to Deadline.

Created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton, Bloodshot tells the story of a former soldier killed and brought back to life with technological upgrades, filling his body with billions of nanobots. This allows him to be the perfect soldier by healing from injuries, shapeshift, and even interact with technology.

Sony’s adaptation of the Valiant Entertainment comic will be directed by Dave Wilson, who worked with Deadpool director Tim Miller at Blur Studios, directing cinematics for video games, including Halo 2Mass Effect 2, and BioShock Infinite. Academy Award-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (ArrivalThe Thing) has penned the script for the film, as well as another of the Sony/Valiant features, Harbinger. It was previously reported that Sony was hoping to develop two films in the respective Bloodshot and Harbinger franchises before crossing them over with a Harbinger War feature film, though it remains to be seen if those plans remain or will in fact materialize.

Diesel will be reunited with producer Neal Moritz, who he has collaborated with on both The Fast and the Furious franchise and the first xXx film. Moritz’s other credits include 21 Jump Street and I Am Legend, plus another superhero film with The Green Hornet.
