Paramount revs Wheelman film engine

Project back on the road.

Paramount Pictures is once more pushing to make to make a Wheelman film, which will star Vin Diesel and be directed by John Singleton (2 Fast 2 Furious, Boyz 'n the Hood), reports Variety.

The original plan was to launch the film alongside the game, which was released in March and picked up average reviews. This deal was largely down to Midway's former owner Sumner Redstone.

The Wheelman follows retired super-driver Milo Burik, who finds himself in the middle of a gang war in Barcelona trying to protect a woman from his past.
