The Wrap is reporting actor Johannes Haukur Johannesson (Atomic Blonde, Game of Thrones' sixth season) will join Vin Diesel in Sony Pictures' Bloodshot, based on the Valiant comic book character.
Johannesson - who reportedly will play a villain - joins Diesel, along with Toby Kebbell, Michael Sheen, Eiza González, Talulah Riley, Alex Hernandez and Sam Heughan who all reportedly have been previously cast.
According to The Wrap, Sony will begin principal photography in July. Blur Studios' Dave Wilson is attached to direct.
The Wrap cites insiders who claim "Sony and Wilson plan to follow in the footsteps of the recent success of Logan and Deadpool with an R-rated take on the comic adaptation that will be tonally and aesthetically influenced by high-concept, sci-fi blockbusters of the late 1980s, including Robocop, Terminator and Total Recall."
