Dallas Buyers Club star Jared Leto is eyeing to star in Sony’s upcoming Valiant Entertainment comic adaption of BLOODSHOT, which will be directed by Dave Wilson. Wilson is known for working with Deadpool director Tim Miller at Blur Studios, directing cinematics for video games, including Halo 2, Mass Effect 2 and BioShock Infinite.

Eric Heissrer (Arrival, The Thing) wrote the script for the film as well as another for Sony/Valiant features, Harbinger. It was previously reported that Sony is planning to develop the two films of the franchise before crossing them with a Harbinger War feature film, though that remains to be seen whether those are still the plans.

Created by Kevin Van Hook, Don Perlin and Bob Layton, Bloodshot tells the story of a former soldier killed and brought back to life with technological upgrades, filling his body with billions of nanobots. This allows him to be the perfect soldier by healing from injuries, shapeshift, and even interact with technology.

Leto is known for his work in Dallas Buyers Club, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor. He recently played the DC Comics character The Joker in Suicide Squad. He’s also the lead singer of the band Thirty Seconds to Mars.
