MGM is in negotiations with Adam Shankman to direct The Machine, the action comedy starring Vin Diesel. The film was scripted by Night at the Museum scribes Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant. Diesel is also producing the project.
It is a re-team for Shankman and Diesel, who previously worked together on The Pacifier.
In The Machine Diesel will star as a human-like machine created in secrecy by the Pentagon as the world’s first true greatest weapon, before the project was decommissioned and buried. Two decades later, The Machine is discovered by a kid who befriends him. When the government discovers he has been reactivated, The Machine steps up to protect the family harboring him.
Remember Pacifier ? it’s the same movie which Vin Diesel prefered over XXX 2 . Yep
