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.
