MTV Films and Paramount are developing Midway Games' "The Wheelman" as both a feature film and a video fame to be released simultaneously in late 2007 with Vin Diesel signed on to star in and produce both reports Variety.

"Wheelman" is an action-adventure title about an expert driver who comes out of retirement to protect a woman from his past. "XXX" scribe Rich Wilkes is penning the film's screenplay and is expected to turn in a draft in about two months.

The game's budget is believed to be north of $15 million - on the high end for videogames. Vidgame's story will be a prequel to the film, with some crossover between the two.
