Action star Vin Diesel is set to appear in Soldiers of the Sun, a new post-apocalyptic future film which will be distributed by Universal Studios. Diesel will also produce the film, together with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Samantha Vincent.
Arash Amel is in charge with the script for the upcoming film. Amel also wrote the script for French director Olivier Dahan's latest film Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, and Frank Langella.
Soldiers of the Sun will follow a group of soldiers in Mexico as they battle an alien race while looking for a legendary lost city of gold.
Hmm, I don't think Vin Diesel is leading man material, he doesn't have the acting chops to carry a movie. He works ok for the Riddick movies but they could have cast someone better. And I am a bit tired of post apocalyptic movies. That being said, I'll have to wait and see the trailer for this before I can have a real opinion.
