You might know Mark Sinclair by his stage name, Vin Diesel. He is an American actor, producer, director, and scriptwriter. Diesel got into acting in his life real quick since he was raised by his stepfather who was an acting instructor and theater manager. Fascinated by the world, Diesel stepped through, but he found out that although his involvement with theater helped him, he could not really make a break in the entertainment industry. This break came when legendary director Steven Spielberg decided to give Diesel the opportunity to play a part in ‘Saving Private Ryan‘. In fact, Spielberg went out of the way to rewrite parts of the film so Vin Diesel could act in it. Diesel then went on to lend his voice in ‘The Iron Giant‘.
But if one really has to look at the films that shot Vin Diesel’s name up there among the stars, it would have to be ‘Fast and Furious‘, ‘xXx’ and ‘The Chronicles of Riddick’. Vin Diesel became widely recognized as Dominic Toretto, the tough protagonist of ‘Fast and Furious’ and he made a name for himself as an action star.
Diesel’s popularity did not stop there, as he has also ventured into voice acting, lending his voice to the popular animated movie, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’. But you might recognize him even more from voicing Groot in the MCU. So now you must be wondering what is the next Vin Diesel movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Vin Diesel films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Vin Diesel movies will be as good as some of his recent ones.
6. Bloodshot (2020)
‘Bloodshot’ is an upcoming fantasy action drama starring Vin Diesel. It is based on the Valiant Comics character of the same name. The story is about a soldier who is experimented with against his will. Nano computers are injected into his blood and his memory is completely wiped. As a result, he becomes a pale-faced antihero who is mostly seen hunting down those who did him wrong. His superpowers include regeneration and the ability to mind-meld with computers. Sony has described the movie as “tonally and aesthetically influenced by high-concept sci-fi blockbusters of the late 80s” like ‘Terminator‘, ‘Total Recall‘. Vin Diesel is bound to pump up the action as he steps into a very familiar territory.
5. Fast & Furious 9 (2020)
