Sony is beginning their Valiant Comics Cinematic Universe with ‘Bloodshot’ which is based on the comic book character created in 1992 by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton. The film will be directed by Dave Wilson and will star Vin Diesel in the titular role. Sam Heughan, Eiza Gonzalez, Guy Pearce and Toby Kebbell will also star in the comic book action flick. The film recently wrapped principal production and we at DiscussingFilm can share an exclusive synopsis that will detail what the plot of the ‘Bloodshot’ film will entail.
“After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison (Vin Diesel) is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both he and his wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he originally thought.”
This synposis sounds like the film will deliver an origin story for the iconic comic book character as well as some entertaining action beats along the way. However, per our sources, we have also heard that the film is potentially eyeing a PG-13 rating for the current cut of the film. This would help Sony reach a wider market with ‘Bloodshot’ as well as keeping a consistent wider market open for their entire Valiant Cinematic Universe however, since the character is known for being hard R, will this potential decision pay off for Sony?
Let us know your thoughts on both the synposis and the potential PG-13 rating the film is currently eyeing.
