He'll produce through his Original Film banner with Jason Kothari and Dinesh Shamdasani on behalf of Valiant Entertainment. The announcement was made Thursday by Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures.
Jeff Wadlow will write the screenplay.
Bloodshot first appeared in Valiant comic books in 1992 and quickly became one of the comic world’s most popular characters. Appearing in over 70 issues, the character has sold seven million comic books globally and was a cornerstone of the Valiant Universe, which sold more than 80 million comic books.
“The Bloodshot character has been a fan favorite for nearly two decades," Minghella said. "Neal is one of the best action producers working today and we know he is the right filmmaker to take on this potential franchise.”
