Diesel revs up for New Line

Thesp signs two-pic deal

NEW YORK — In a seven-figure deal, thesp Vin Diesel has pacted to star in two films for New Line, which also has given an overall feature development deal to his One Race Prods.

Diesel, whose recent credits include “Saving Private Ryan,” “Pitch Black” and “Boiler Room,” will be paid a seven-figure salary to star for director F. Gary Gray in “Diablo,” which will be the first film under the New Line deal. He’s guaranteed the studio a second feature to be named later.

At the same time, New Line will open its doors to One Race Prods., the company Diesel runs with George Zakk. They produced “Strays,” which played the Sundance Film Festival, and the short film “Multi-Facial.”

Future revs up

Diesel is starring in “Redline,” the Universal racing pic directed by Rob Cohen and slated for an April release. He’ll next be seen starring with John Malkovich and Dennis Hopper in “Knockaround Guys,” a Brian Koppelman/David Levien-directed film to be released by New Line in January. Diesel also is expecting to be at the center of a sequel for “Pitch Black,” which is currently being written for Universal by “X-Men” scribe David Hayter.

He’s repped by Endeavor, is managed by the Firm’s Stacy Boniello and lawyered by Nelson, Felker, Levine & Dern.
