Gray & Diesel Re-Team for "Muscle"

 

Following their previous collaboration with 2017's The Fate of the Furious, director F. Gary Gray (Known also for 2015's Straight Outta Compton) is set to helm Diesel's newest project, Muscle. This will actually be their third project together as Gray first directed Diesel in the 2003 film A Man Apart. Set up over at STXfilms Motion Picture Group, that studio's chairman, Adam Fogelman, had this to say:

“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.”

The original script for the project was written by Scott Taylor & Wesley Jermaine Johnson with John Swetnam and Malcolm Spellman having worked on the current draft. No information has been given about the plot except it will be an action-comedy. The project will be executive produced by Gray (through his Fenix Studios banner) while Diesel and Samantha Vincent will produce for One Race Films alongside Reginald Hudlin and Byron Phillips. Stay tuned!

It was a return to basics after the bloated 'chronicles' which bombed at the BO. I liked them all however.

Same. COR was indeed bloated but it was still more fascinating than most other big budget sci-fi films. It was pulp science fiction. But yeah, I think Riddick works better in isolated situations. And if the plot details are right, he’s basically going to his dead home planet next.

It was worth it too. “Riddick” was kind of a soft remake of the first film but it was still well-done.
