This whole business of Vin Diesel being in Guardians of the Galaxy has been really interesting to watch, because while Diesel talked about playing the tree-alien Groot for a long time, the guy wasn’t actually signed to do anything with Marvel for much of that period. Not that he wasn’t always a pretty ideal choice, even if his one line in the movie is “I am Groot.”
Now Diesel is officially in the picture, and director James Gunn and Marvel have released official stuff confirming so. Gunn posted the photo above this evening, and then Marvel followed up with a press release. Gunn also had a few comments, and you can read those below.

We won’t see exactly how this new villain and setting plays out until director James Wan releases the sequel on July 11, but the soon-to-be-released Blu-ray for the sixth film does feature a full scene from the seventh.

Briefly: One video game adaptation that keeps restarting from save points is Kane & Lynch, which has had directors and potential cast members come and go over since shortly after the first game’s debut in 2007. The game series features the two title characters, two escaped death row inmates who find that they were broken out of prison only to be coerced into tracking down a giant cache of loot for a big criminal organization. Turns out that recruiting pychopathic, schizophrenic men to do such work isn’t the best idea, and much violence ensues.
Now Gerard Butler is in talks to play Kane, and F. Gary Gray, once set to direct a while back, on board once more to make the movie. To round out the lead duo, producers are hoping to land Vin Diesel. THR has the news, saying that an offer is out to Diesel, but even Butler isn’t signed just yet. Butler and Gray have worked together before, on the Gray’s most recent feature Law Abiding Citizen, and the director worked with Diesel on A Man Apart.
