Bloodshot is making his way to the big screen, but according to star Vin Diesel, Sony is doing much more than that with its first feature film.
Diesel will be playing the role of Bloodshot in Valiant's first feature film, which will come to life thanks to director Dave Wilson, writer Eric Heisserer, and producers Neal Moritz, Toby Jaffe, and Dinesh Shamdasani. Rukari Austin sat down with Diesel and Shamdasani, and Diesel explained why Sony is leading the charge of superhero movies of the future.
You're watching something and you're going...I guess I expected that we would finally get here in the superhero universe, but I can't believe we're here. Dave Wilson, who's directing it. Guy Pierce, who's in it is insane. We just have a great cast. Sony, you know that Sony is finally going to lead the charge in the superhero movies of the future because they're incorporating a part of reality and incorporating issues that exist in society and embedding them into a quote-unquote superhero movie. It's just awesome."
Bloodshot fans can get their hands on some very exclusive items from the film and Diesel by helping out this year's Game4Paul fundraiser. For those who aren't familiar, Walker founded a charity known as Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW), an organization that helps deploy humanitarian relief in the wake of natural disasters. Currently, ROWW has teams in Indonesia helping with the recent earthquake and tsunami as well as in North Carolina after Hurrican Irene.
Bloodshot and Xbox will also be partnering to provide a fantastic haul of prizes and rewards direct from the Bloodshot set for those who donate to ROWW, including a custom Bloodshot-themed and Vin Diesel signed Xbox One X console, several exclusive variant covers signed by Diesel and the cast, and much much more.
