STXfilms has announced that director F. Gary Gray will reunite with The Fate of the Furious star Vin Diesel for the action-comedy Muscle.
“There are few directors who can match Gary’s skill with character, comedy, and big action, which is why he is one of the most accomplished and in-demand directors working today,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms. “Over the years, Vin and I have worked together on a number of hit movies and it’s a thrill to reteam Vin and Gary after their billion-dollar success on The Fate of the Furious. This will become one of the most eagerly anticipated films on our slate.”
Plot details for Muscle are being kept under wraps, but Gray will direct from a script by Scott Taylor & Wesley Jermaine Johnson, with John Swetnam and Malcolm Spellman having penned the latest draft.
Diesel was last seen in Sony’s Bloodshot, and reprises his role as Dominic Toretto in Fast & Furious 9 this May.
