MOVIE NEWS: Wheelman Movie is a Go!

Wheelman Movie Now Official

In a move that surprises no one, Vin Diesel is going to team up with John Singleton to bring Midway Games, Wheelman franchise to the big screen.  For some reason I’m thinking this is old news, I could have sworn they were making this a few years go and then canceled it. But I’m probably wrong.  I’ve met John Singleton a couple of times and he has become an ahole, but he is talented. I run hot and cold on Diesel on the one hand I can’t stand him as an actor but he always picks really good genre material.  I don’t know how much Midway’s financial problems will affect this project but it’ll be interesting to follow.
