‘Vin Diesel posted an Instagram video from a movie set in Africa to mark the first day of filming for his upcoming superhero film Bloodshot.
Based on the Valiant Entertainment superhero originally created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton in 1992, Bloodshot follows a soldier named Ray Garrison (Diesel) who is injected with nanites after getting mortally wounded in battle. These micro-machines give him the ability to regenerate from any wound, as well as the white skin and blood-red eyes that earn him his superhero moniker. In the film, Bloodshot will put his abilities to use by rounding up young superhero outcasts known as “Harbingers.
Bloodshot is a pretty violent superhero. Sony is pursuing an R-rating for the film, following the recent success of R-rated superhero movies like Logan and Deadpool. The new film is directed by Dave Wilson, who is Deadpool director Tim Miller’s partner at Blur Studios.’
