“Bloodshot” is based on the comic book series from Valiant Entertainment, and it stars Diesel as a soldier recently killed in action who is brought back to life by a giant corporation and becomes an unstoppable super soldier able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too, and he must figure out what’s real and what’s not.
Wilson directed the film from a screenplay by Jeff Wadlow and Eric Heisserer. It also stars Eiza Gonzalez, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell and Guy Pearce.
Wilson previously directed the “Sonnie’s Edge” segment of the Netflix animated anthology series “Love, Death & Robots.” Wilson was previously the creative director of Blur Studios, an award-winning visual effects, animation and design company founded by “Deadpool” director Tim Miller.
