Vin Diesel To Star In Movie Based On Rock’Em Sock’Em Robots 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. Which is more ridiculous – a movie based on Rock’Em Sock’Em Robots or a movie based on Uno? What are some board games that would actually work well as a movie?
