Universal has picked up the rights to the science fiction action franchise, which has Diesel attached to a spec script written by Arash Amel.

Diesel will also produce alongside Lorenzo di Bonaventura with the hopes of launching an "ensemble-type franchise series", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Soldiers of the Sun follows a squad of soldiers struggling to liberate Mexico from an alien race, while also searching for a legendary city of gold.

Amel wrote the upcoming Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco, and is attached to pen the sequel to Will Smith's I Am Legend.

Diesel is reportedly in talks to voice the role of Groot in Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy.
