Variety reports that Paramount Pictures has tapped Vin Diesel to star in The Wheelman. John Singleton has been tapped to direct and Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce this film.

The movie will be a live-action adaptation of the popular Ubisoft videogame "Wheelman."

The videogame came out last month and Diesel is the game's main character and also its producer.

Diesel is slated to play an expert driver who ends his retirement to help a woman from his past.

The script was written by Rich Wilkes. It was rewritten by Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell.
