Dan Mintz, producer of Bloodshot and founder of DMG, revealed that the sequel to the film comic strip has received the green light. According to Mints, despite the coronavirus pandemic and the imminent appearance of the picture in digital distribution, the fees were sufficient to approve the production of the sequel.
The producer said that Vin Diesel and the entire production team will return to work on the sequel.
I think Bloodshot was very successful. Many people watched the film, and it performed well even after the cinemas closed. But success cannot be measured by the same metrics as before the pandemic.
Will Vin Diesel and the rest of the crew return to work on a sequel? Yes, because the film was very well received, but it was not noticed by many because the film did not appear in the box office.
According to the plot, after the murder of the military Harrison and his wife, scientists bring him back to life with the help of nanomites and turn him into a super-soldier. Later, memory returns to the hero and he takes the path of revenge against those who did this to him.
Bloodshot was released on March 12 and raised only $ 33 million with a budget of $ 45 million. After a week of rental, the picture became available on digital services. On the aggregator Rotten Tomatoes , the film has 30% freshness from critics and 78% positive reviews from viewers.
