Exclusive: Universal Pictures has set Vin Diesel to star in World's Most Wanted, an action adventure that Dan Mazeau will rewrite. The project originated from a pitch by Will Staples & Sean O’Keefe, who wrote an earlier draft. Neal Moritz will produce for his Original Films with Diesel for his One Race Films. Samantha Vincent and Tania Landau will executive produce. This deal reunites Diesel with Moritz, who has produced The Fast And The Furious series, on which Diesel is now a producer, as well as xXx (they are developing a sequel). Diesel was just at Comic-Con for Riddick, as the crowd waited in vain for clarity on his possible participation in The Avengers sequel, or perhaps even playing Luke Cage in a movie. As for Mazeau, he co-wrote with David Leslie Johnson Wrath Of The Titans for Warner Bros. He recently adapted the popular Japanese manga series Bleach »
