Vin Diesel has made a career for himself being a complete badass, but we like him best when he is engaging in some good old fashioned monster slaying, and thankfully that’s the order of the day for his latest project.
According to THR, Diesel is teaming up with Arash Amel, the writer of the upcoming Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco, to create an original sci-fi action movie franchise. Universal has picked up Soldiers of the Sun with Diesel attached to star in Amel’s spec script. Diesel is also on board to produce with Samantha Vincent via their One Race Films along with veteran producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura.
The flick is set in a post-apocalyptic future and focuses on a squad of soldiers that searches for a fabled city of gold while on a tour of duty in Mexico, liberating it from an alien race known as Orcs.
