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, where Diesel explained why he decided to take the part.
“Well first of all it was a New York Times bestseller, and there’s something interesting about how the character doesn’t abandon his humanity,” Diesel said. “It’s not heightened reality, it’s based in reality. It deals with issues like post-traumatic stress disorder. The script was one of the most interesting scripts I’ve ever read. It plays with your mind in a way you can’t…that you don’t normally see in movies. It’s so complex. It’s so well written and so well developed.”
