Spies can't handle a virus, but a super soldier can.
As coronavirus risks throw Hollywood for a loop, "Bloodshot" and "Fast and Furious" star Vin Diesel says "we need movies now more than than ever." https://t.co/lQ8PV0nL2J— USA TODAY Life (@usatodaylife) March 7, 2020
That line is in reference to both NO TIME TO DIE and MY SPY being pushed back.
In light of global Coronavirus issues, during promotion for BLOODSHOT (Already out in Italy...opens in the US This Friday), when asked if the film would be delayed*
(*Again, as it was originally supposed to come out Feb. 21st)
“Let me put it to you this way: 'Bloodshot' at the end of the day is a soldier and a soldier doesn't decide or pick when or where he's deployed. We're going to go in,” he said.As a producer on the film, he has money invested into it. He's still asking Sony to let him go to China to promote it.
He doesn't blame anyone for thinking it's a risky move, so why release it now?
“we need movies now more than ever. We're already in a very interesting time where cinema and the cinematic experience is so threatened. So, yes, put it on record we're going to show up.”
I guess the human population is right up there with the cinematic experience under the 'Things Being Threatened' list.
Do you plan to risk your safety for a B-List superhero property and car racing?
