Vin Diesel to Star in New Film “Muscle”

It has been recently announced that STXfilms has signed F. Gary Gray to direct Vin Diesel in the action-comedy Muscle. Reginald Hudlin and Byron Phillips are producing alongside Diesel and Samantha Vincent for One Race Films. Gray will also executive produce.

Muscle will be Gray’s next project. The latest draft is by John Swetnam and Malcolm Spellman. The original script was written by Scott Taylor & Wesley Jermaine Johnson. The film’s log line is being kept under wraps. Production is expected to begin later this year.

Commenting on the announcement, Adam Fogelson, chairman, STXfilms Motion Picture Group, said, “There are few directors who can match Gary’s skill with character, comedy, and big action, which is why he is one of the most accomplished and in-demand directors working today. Over the years, Vin and I have worked together on a number of hit movies and it’s a thrill to reteam Vin and Gary after their billion-dollar success on The Fate of the Furious. This will become one of the most eagerly anticipated films on our slate.”

F. GARY GRAY’s films include the worldwide blockbuster The Fate of the Furious, which took in over $1.2 billion at the global box office, the smash hit and Oscar® nominated Straight Outta Compton, Law Abiding Citizen, Be Cool, The Italian Job, The Negotiator, Set It Off, and his debut feature, the classic comedy Friday. He is developing to direct Saints Row and is also attached to direct M.A.S.K. for Paramount and Hasbro. He is represented by UTA and attorney Nina Shaw.

VIN DIESEL will next star in the highly anticipated ninth chapter in The Fast & Furious franchise and was last seen in Sony’s Bloodshot. In addition to Fast & Furious, he is most widely known for his roles as Richard B. Riddick in the Chronicles of Riddick series, and Xander Cage in the xXx series as well as the voice of Groot in the Guardians of the Galaxy films and Avengers: Infinity War. Diesel is repped by CAA and Linden Entertainment.
