Guy Pearce is in talks to replace Michael Sheen in Sony's adaptation of Valiant's Bloodshot, according to Variety.
Sheen exited the film due to scheduling conflicts. If cast, Pearce would replace Sheen as Dr. Emil Harting, the scientist responsible for Bloodshot's creation. Pearce previously portrayed villain Aldritch Killian in Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3. Vin Diesel portrays the titular anti-hero.
Bloodshot began production this week for a February 21, 2020 release.
