According to reports, Vin Diesel is now set to star in a film based around classic Mattel two-player action toy game Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots. “To take the classic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em game, with Mattel as my partner, and align it with the kind of world-building, franchise-making success we have had with Universal is truly exciting,” said Diesel.

Produced by Diesel, his company One Race Films and Universal Pictures in partnership with Mattel Films, the movie will see the Fast & Furious actor’s character and son develop a bond with an advanced war machine. The screenplay for the film is currently being developed by Rampage writter Ryan Engle.
