MUSCLE: Vin Diesel & F. Gary Gray Reunite for New Mystery Action Project for STXFilms!

By: John M Jerva

Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel hit it off extremely well while with director F. Gary Gray while making The Fate of the Furious back in 2017 and now the duo are ready to rev it up once again for a new, mysterious action project Muscle. I say mysterious because other than that we know next to nothing about the new film but it’s supposedly set to start filming sometime this year.

Per Deadline: STXfilms has set F. Gary Gray to direct Vin Diesel in the action-comedy Muscle, which will be Gray’s next film and will shoot later this year. Reginald Hudlin and Byron Phillips are producing alongside Diesel and Samantha Vincent for One Race Films. Gray will be executive producer through his Fenix Studios banner.

We do know that the original script was penned by Scott Taylor & Wesley Jermaine Johnson while the current draft got the film was turned in by John Swetnam and Malcolm Spellman. The plot is being kept under wraps for the time being but hopefully that’ll change sooner rather than later.

“There are few directors who can match Gary’s skill with character, comedy and big action, which is why he is one of the most accomplished and in-demand directors working today,” said Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms Motion Picture Group. “Over the years, Vin and I have worked together on a number of hit movies, and it’s a thrill to reteam Vin and Gary after their billion-dollar success on The Fate of the Furious. This will become one of the most eagerly anticipated films on our slate.”

Gray helmed the 2017 entry The Fate of the Furious with Diesel and he is also currently working on a live action M.A.S.K. film for Paramount and Hasbro. Diesel will, of course, be seen on June 25th when the long senates F9 finally hits theaters after being delayed from last year.

Keep it locked and loaded right here for more to come as we are your destination for everything action!
