Dave Wilson, Deadpool director Tim Miller's partner at Blur Studios will be making his feature debut as of March with Original Films's Neal Moritz and Toby Jaffe producing with Valiant's own Dinesh Shamdasani.

Bloodshot was created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton in 1992.

The film is just the second of a five-film plot building toward the culimating fifth title, Harbinger Wars in a deal between Valiant and DMG Entertainment, with Harbinger first up for production as of last September. The role of Bloodshot is also an intergral character for upcoming webseries, Ninjak VS. The Valiant Universe from directors Aaron Schoenke and Sean Schoenke.

Leto will next appear and Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2046 on October 6, 2017. (Deadline)
