Vin Diesel is The Machine
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I was beginning to think that Vin Diesel couldn’t do anything but sequels. FAST FIVE was a big success and he supposedly has more adventures in store for Riddick and he was even supposed to be starring in a sequel to XXX. But now he’s taking a drastic detour and doing a non-sequel. Vin Diesel has signed on to star in THE MACHINE for the newly revamped MGM studios. In it, Diesel will play an ultimate weapon of half man and half machine that is deactivated by the government. When he’s found and reactivated 20 years later, he’s befriended by a young boy. But the government isn’t happy about his reactivation and “The Machine” must protect himself and his new family.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking; this sounds like at least a dozen other films that have come out in the last 20 years. And the only thing I’ll point out is that…well there’s…but the other films didn’t have…okay, it is exactly like a dozen other films we’ve seen before. But Vin Diesel knows what he’s good at and that’s simple action films that require very little dialogue, so give the guy some credit.
