Vin Diesel and “Grace of Monaco” scribe Arash Amel are teaming for an original sci-fi action movie franchise at Universal Pictures and One Race Films.
Amel penned a spec script which Diesel is attached to star in and produce. Samantha Vincent and Lorenzo di Bonaventura will also produce.
The story is set in a post-apocalyptic future and focuses on a squad of soldiers that searches for a fabled city of gold while on a tour of duty in Mexico liberating it from an alien race known as Orcs.
The aim is to launch an ensemble-type franchise much like the studio’s “Fast and Furious” franchise.
