Vin Diesel in "Wheelman" Video Game Adaptation Posted: May 8th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Paramount Pictures has set John Singleton (2 Fast 2 Furious) to direct and Lorenzo di Bonaventura to produce "The Wheelman," a live-action adaptation of the Ubisoft video game "Wheelman." The video game launched last month, with Vin Diesel as its main character and the game's producer. Diesel will play an expert driver who comes out of retirement to protect a woman from his past. Rich Wilkes wrote the script; the writing team of Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell did a rewrite. Paramount first got involved in the project in 2006; at the time, the partnership was hailed as one of the biggest between a video game publisher and a studio. Sumner Redstone owned both Midway Games and Paramount, and the plan was to launch the "Wheelman" game and movie in close proximity. Redstone unloaded his 87% stake in Midway late last year in a debt restructuring move, and the video game moved to Ubisoft.

The game isn't that bad...but it isn't that good either. It was fun the driving part. However it is safe to say I'll never own this game. I can't wait for Split/Second!
