The Wrap reports that Game of Thrones‘s Johannes Haukur Johannesson will appear in Sony’s upcoming adaptation of Valiant’s Bloodshot.
Created by created by Kevin VanHook and Yvel Guichet, Bloodshot first appeared 1992’s in Rai #0. He was a conscripted soldier with nanite-generated regenerative and morphing abilities whose memory was erased a number of times. Freed from his superiors, he began a quest to learn the truth about himself. Though the Valiant Universe has been rebooted several times and the particulars of Bloodshot’s story changed, the basic premise has remained in tact. Presumably, it will also be the basis of the film, with Vin Diesel becoming Angelo Mortalli, a former — or rising — mobster subjected to the nanite treatment and forced into wetwork.
Johannes will play a villain in the film, which also features Toby Kebbell, Michael Sheen, Eiza González, Talulah Riley, Alex Hernandez and Sam Heughan.
The film is set to being production in July for a 2019 release.
