TheWrap reports Talulah Riley (Westworld) and Alex Hernandez (Unreal) are in talks to join the cast of Sony’s Bloodshot movie.
According to the trade, Riley is set for the role of Gina, with Hernandez cast as Tibbs. Riley and Hernandez join Vin Diesel, Michael Sheen, Eiza Gonzalez, and Sam Heughan in the project.
Bloodshot follows protagonist Angelo Mortalli, a ruthless hired gun for the mob who is set up and framed for a murder by the family. Mortalli goes into witness protection but is ultimately betrayed by the FBI forced into an experimental program where he is injected with nanites that erase his brain and rebuild his body to be a weapon with superhuman strength and healing powers.
Dave Wilson is set to direct the project with Neil Moritz producing alongside Toby Jaffe through the Original Films banner and by Valiant’s Dinesh Shamdasani with Matthew Vaughn and Jason Kothari serving as exec producers. Production on the project is set to begin next month.
Bloodshot will be the second film in a five-picture deal Sony has with Valiant and DMG. The first being Harbinger which is being written by Justin Tipping and Joshua Beirne-Golden. The plan is for each movie to get a sequel before the characters cross over in Harbinger Wars.

10 Marvel Characters Who Can Replace Iron Man After ‘Avengers 4’
He may not be the most powerful hero, but Iron Man is clearly the heart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His first solo film in 2007 kick-started the shared universe and directly led to the Avengers joining forces on the big screen. After starring in three solo movies and playing prominent roles in three other Marvel films, now seems like an appropriate time for Iron Man, or at least for Tony Stark, to slowly bow out of the spotlight.
Ever since The Avengers, Stark has been obsessed with the bigger threat out in the Universe. Well, Thanos finally launched his primary attack in Avengers: Infinity War and Iron Man is going to have to think creatively to save the universe. Rumors have been pointing for years that Robert Downey Jr. is ready to say goodbye to the Marvel Universe, but if that happens, Marvel will have to send Iron Man out in style. Whether he sacrifices himself to resurrect the universe or just stalls Thanos long enough for Doctor Strange to save the day, the potential loss of Tony Stark will leave a giant, Iron Man-sized hole in the MCU that will desperately need filling.
