SA ties

Last year, South African comedians Donovan Goliath and his brother Jason announced that they will feature in Diesel’s new film, Bloodshot. The brothers took to Instagram to share the news on 24 February 2020. Jason said that even though they only feature for like 10 seconds, he is very excited. He shared a photo of the two of them with the Fast & Furious hitmaker seemingly wearing police uniforms.

Further to this, the film that was released in South Africa on 31 March 2020, was actually filmed in South Africa back in 2018. In fact, Diesel shared a photo on his Instagram account with Table Mountain in the background at the time of filming.

The film tells the story of Ray Garrison who is resurrected by a team of scientists.

“Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both him and his wife, he breaks out of the facility to get revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he thought.”
