With Sony currently developing a Bloodshot adaptation, it appears that Jared Leto is the frontrunner to take the titular role.
Bloodshot is a Valiant comic tale from Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton, with the main character being a former soldier who was killed and brought back to life complete with a whole bunch of swanky technological upgrades. As per The Hollywood Reporter, Leto is now in the frame to take the lead role in the adap.
At present, Arrival’s Eric Heisserer has put together a script for the picture, with Halo 2’s Dave Wilson signed on to direct. The plan at one point in time was to develop cinematic Bloodshot and Harbinger (also another Valiant property) franchises before crossing them over, although all has gone a little quiet on that front lately.
As ever, expect more on this as we get it.
