According to The Wrap, Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot may be gaining two more actors for its cast. Talulah Riley (Westworld) and Alex Hernandez (UnReal) are in final talks to star in the film.
Riley is said to portray Gina, Bloodshot’s wife, with Hernandez in talks for the role of Tibbs, a member of the scientist’s team responsible for Bloodshot’s technology. They will join Diesel, Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Michael Sheen (Passengers) and Sam Heughan (Outlander) in the film.
Based on the Valiant comic of the same name, Bloodshot follows Ray Garrison (Diesel), a mortally wounded soldier who finds himself resurrected using nanotechnology and given the task of hunting down superpowered outcasts known as harbingers.
Visual effects supervisor Dave Wilson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) is directing Bloodshot from a script by Eric Heisserer (Arrival), and the plan is for the movie to launch a shared Valiant cinematic universe which will include a Harbinger movie, sequels to both, and the crossover Harbinger Wars.
