The film will be directed by Dave Wilson making his directorial debut. Wilson has connections to Deadpool director Tim Miller and their production company Blur Studios. The film is also being written by Arrival scribe Eric Heisserer; who was also nominated for an Oscar in 2016.
Just last week we at Omega Underground reported the film is expected to start production this July in Prague. Now we are back with a couple of audition tapes which feature Irish actor Ciaran McCourt (The Sparticle Mystery) and Joel Jackson reading for the part of So Long a henchmen working for Rising Spirit Technologies. They are the secret military organization that bring Ray Garrison back from the dead as Bloodshot. With the use of nanotechnology he is trained to be a living weapon but they also completely wipe his memory.
The second video features stage actress Jasmine Cephas Jones who is known for playing the dual roles of Maria Reynolds and Peggy Schuyler in Hamilton LIVE! reading for the part of KP. Which appears to be another henchmen that is more compassionate towards Bloodshot in their secret training facility.
