Sony Pictures Entertainment and actor Vin Diesel have announced the start of production on the upcoming “Bloodshot” comics adaptation via an Instagram video earlier today.
VFX guru Dave Wilson will be making his feature directorial debut on the project which will be shot in Cape Town ahead of a February 21st 2020 release.
The story follows a mortally wounded soldier resurrected with cutting-edge nanotechnology and tasked with rounding up super-powered outcasts called ‘Harbingers’. He has the ability to interface directly with technology.
The plan is for a five-film shared universe based on the Valiant comic books. “Fast and the Furious” franchise producer Neal Moritz is producing alongside Dinesh Shamdasani. Eric Heisserer (“Arrival,” “Extinction”) penned the script.
