BLOODSHOT Comic To Get Feature Film Adaptation
Sony Pictures will be developing a big screen adaptation of the 1992 Valiant comic book series Bloodshot. The studio has brought on Neal Moritz to produce the film and hired Jeff Wadlow (Prey) to write it. X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn was at one point rumored to direct, but according to Deadline, that's not true.
I read this comic growing up, but I remember the images more than I do the story, which follows a character named "Angelo Mortalli, a ruthless killer for the mob who is set up by the family and framed for a murder. He instead goes into Witness Protection, but is betrayed by an FBI agent guarding him, kidnapped and forcibly subjected to an experimental program in which his body is injected with microscopic computers called nanites. They erase his brain and rebuild it and his body to be a weapon with superhuman strength and healing powers. Bloodshot escapes his makers, and though he isn’t his old self, he tries to figure out who he was. Things get bad for everybody who betrayed him."
I can see this being turned into a cool film that I would enjoy. I guess it all depends on who they bring one board to direct and star in it. Who would you like to see direct the movie and play the lead character?
