Breaking News: Vin Diesel Will Star in an Action Movie. WHAAAAAAAAAA?

Apparently tired of dramatic and comedic roles, Vin Diesel is now looking to stretch his acting chops by doing — I kid you not — an action movie!

The plan is for Vin Diesel to produce and star in an untitled action-thriller from writers Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell, the two guys behind the Liam Neeson actioner “Unknown”.

There is no word on what the movie will be about, just that it will be an action movie. Which, if you’ve been following Vin Diesel’s career, you know this is a major move for the man towards acting respectability. I mean, who would have thunk it? Diesel as an action star? Oh, Hollywood, whatever will you think of next?

I for one hope he can pull it off!
