In a joint statement, Diesel, Midway Games, MTV Films, and Paramount Pictures announced "The Wheelman" in which the actor will star as well
Wanting more on his plate, Vin Diesel is about to be the real gamer rather than just give games lip service. The beefy action star has agreed to star in the upcoming action adventure film titled "The Wheelman."
It reportedly is "a groundbreaking action-entertainment property" that will be simultaneously developed as a film and as a game. The story centers on an expert driver who comes out of retirement to protect a woman from his past.
While Rich Wilkes has been tapped to write the screenplay, no director, release date, or plot details for "The Wheelman" have yet been announced.
