LONDON, ENGLAND - JANUARY 19: Vin Diesel attends the "Fast and Furious Live" premiere at the O2 Arena on January 19, 2018 in London, England.

Vin Diesel is set to star in a live-action movie based on Rock’Em Sock’Em Robots – and we swear that’s not a late April Fool’s joke.

The F9 star has signed on for a movie based on the classic Mattel toy – telling the story of  “a father and son who form an unlikely bond with an advanced war machine.”

Mattel is working on several movies based on its toy lines – from Barbie to the card game Uno.
