In August 2018, Variety reported that Guy Pearce is in talks to join Vin Diesel in the upcoming action flick ‘Bloodshot.’ The movie follows a wounded soldier Ray Garrison (played by Diesel), who is resurrected as super-soldier ‘Bloodshot’ by the covert government organization called Project Rising Spirit. The organization uses nano-objects called “Nanites”, which enter his blood to give him super-human powers that help him to withstand any kind of trauma and pain. But the scientists have also implanted some alternate identities with Nanites, which cause a terrible identity clash in Bloodshot’s brain while he hunts down ‘harbingers,’ who are rogues with superpowers. Pearce reportedly plays the role of Dr. Emil Harting, the nanotechnology genius who invents the path-breaking “Nanites.” The other cast includes Sam Heughan, Eiza González and Toby Kebbell. ‘Bloodshot’ is directed by Dave Wilson from a screenplay by Jeff Wadlow and Eric Heisserer.
