Vin Dieselhas been recruited by Universal to lead a new sci-fi movie called Soldiers Of The Sun.
Universal have also hired Lorenzo di Bonaventura for the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
And the studio apparently hopes that the property will become a successful ensemble franchise series.
Based on a script written by Arash Amel, the film is set in a post-apocalyptic future and will tell the story of a group of soldiers fighting to liberate Mexico from aliens - at the same time as they search for a fabled "city of gold".
Vin-D recently appeared in Fast & Furious 6 - and will soon pop up on the big screen again in Riddick.
A new trailer for Riddick was released last week.
