Vin Diesel to Produce and Star in SOLDIERS OF THE SUN

Vin Diesel has been in the news a lot lately. With his constant misdirection pertaining to what Marvel character he is going to play, his "Fast and Furious" franchise, and his new "Riddick" movie coming out. Now the man with a plan is in the news again, only this time it's for a project he will produce as well as star in.

Called "Soldiers of the Sun", the post-apocalyptic future story follows a squad of soldiers searching for "a fabled city of gold while on a tour of duty in Meicao liberating it from an alien trace known as Orcs". Undoubtedly within Diesel's wheelhouse but sounds a lot like "Riddick", no?

The seventh installment of "Fast and the Furious" is already in production, with horror director James Wan at the helm, replacing Justin Lin. I'm a big fan of Wan's work, so it will be interesting to see how his approach with one genre translates to another.

Do you like the sound of "Soldiers of the Sun"? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Fast and Furious 7" will hit AMC Theatres in 2014.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
