Sony Pictures has closed a deal to acquire the film rights to the comic series "Bloodshot" says Deadline.

The 1992 comic follows a ruthless killer for the mob who is framed for a murder, put into Witness Protection, and then betrayed and forcibly subjected to an experimental program.

Injected with nanites that rebuild his brain and body to become a weapon of superhuman strength, he escapes and tries to figure out who he was.

Jeff Wadlow will write the script while Neal Moritz, Jason Kothari and Dinesh Shamdasani will produce.
