The Valiant cinematic universe takes a step closer, as Vin Diesel enters talks to headline Bloodshot.
We're moving closer to that Valiant Cinematic Universe. For quite some time now, Sony has been developing properties from Valiant Entertainment's excellent line of superhero and sci-fi projects, including Harbinger, Archer & Armstrong, a Quantum & Woody TV series (with the Russo Bros. involved), and Bloodshot.
Bloodshot, the story of a nanite powered super soldier, will kick things off, to be followed by the Harbinger movie. And right now, Bloodshot is moving even closer to reality.
Bloodshot has a director (Dave Wilson) and an Oscar nominated screenwriter (Arrival's Eric Heisserer), and now Sony is looking to find the right star. The Wrap reports that Vin Diesel is apparently in talks for the title role. If Diesel ends up in the role, expect him to appear in Bloodshot, its sequel, and then a Harbinger Wars team-up film.
