“Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots’’ is an upcoming American action film. It is based on the company’s iconic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots tabletop game.
Mattel Films is behind this live-action feature take on the classic boxing-robots game and is partnering with Universal, the studio behind Diesel’s beloved Fast & Furious franchise and Vin Diesel.
Vin Diesel is set to star in and produce it with his One Race Films label and partner Samantha Vincent. Kevin McKeon will oversee the project for Mattel.
Ryan Engle, who wrote Dwayne Johnson’s “Rampage” and Liam Neeson’s “The Commuter,” penned the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em screenplay.

‘Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots’ Cast
Vin Diesel will star in the project.
However, despite the fact the fighters of that plastic arena can’t really move all that much, there’s no reason to think the film will be called The Stationary and the Furious.
Before you joke about whether Diesel will be playing the blue robot or the red robot, we already know that the answer is neither.
No word yet on who will play the role of Diesel’s character’s son, though we do have another casting suggestion. If the red and blue robots from the iconic game make an appearance as characters, consider Dwayne “The Red Rocker” Johnson.
Diesel said, “To take the classic Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em game, with Mattel as my partner, and align it with the kind of world-building, franchise-making success we have had with Universal is truly exciting”.
Robbie Brenner, EP of Mattel Films, added, “We are proud to bring this iconic piece of Mattel IP to life on the big screen with our tremendously talented partners Vin Diesel, One Race Films and Universal”. “Our rich library of franchises continues to yield compelling stories, and we look forward to creating what is sure to be a thrilling action adventure for the whole family to enjoy with Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.”
