Vin Diesel is the fuel in The Machine

05.19.2011

After RISE OF THE MACHINES, Vin Diesel was the subject of rumors and fan-casting as a possible cyborg replacement if the TERMINATOR franchise continued without Arnie.

That obviously never happened (even though it might've been cooler than the McG model we got), but Diesel will be a different, more sensitive kind of robot in THE MACHINE.

In the MGM action-comedy, Diesel will play (?) a human-like machine "created in secrecy by the Pentagon as the world's first true ultimate weapon. Twenty years after the project was buried and decommissioned for reasons unknown, The Machine is discovered by a kid who befriends him. When the government learns it has been reactivated, the Machine must protect the family harboring him."

The script comes from "Reno 911!" and "The State" veterans Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, who also wrote the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUMs and Diesel's family flick THE PACIFIER. Diesel will also produce THE MACHINE.

Extra Tidbit: Looks like Riddick fans who were hoping Diesel's FAST FIVE success would mean we'd get RIDDICK 3 next will have to wait a bit longer...

???? I thought Riddick 3 was a done deal, it was just a matter of when. They need to get it done.

Forget this...Gimme Riddick!!!

I love Vin. But we all know what he is known for and what is successful. We know there's gonna be another FF. Go do Riddick in between. It's going on 8 years since the last one so we're craving it. Leave the kiddie movies to the Rock when he's in between his bad ass roles...he's a better suit for it anyways...

So, sounds like Iron Giant only maybe a lot dumber. But maybe it could be okay, too. That's a BIG maybe.

Concept sounds ok.

Except for the fact that it's being labled as an action-comedy. Would be nice to see a more serious spin on that. We already had the family friendly version of that in animated form with Iron Giant.
