Jared Leto is reportedly being courted to star in an adaptation of the sci-fi/action comic “Bloodshot” at Valiant Entertainment and Sony Pictures.
Dubbed a crime-oriented Frankenstein thriller, the story follows a mob killer who enters a witness protection program – only to be betrayed.
He soon becomes part of a secret experiment to create the ultimate killing machine, his memories are erased and he’s injected nanites that turn him into an unstoppable force.
Leto has the offer to play the title character, but no dealmaking has yet begun. Dave Wilson is attached to direct while Neal H. Moritz and Toby Jaffe will produce.
