Ever since “xXx” first hit big screens in 2002, this action adventure movie left a huge mark in the world of action-packed adventures. However, its 2005 sequel didn’t exactly get that many positive reaction, but that isn’t stopping Vin from creating a huge hype around the franchise’s upcoming third installment – “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage”.

Great Cast

Vin Diesel is obviously returning as the title character, and with Samuel L. Jackson also reprising his role as Augustus Gibbons, we now have more good news for all you triple X fans out there.

The upcoming sequel will apparently focus on Xander Cage forming a new team, with new cast members.

We already know that Deepika Padukone, Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, and Conor McGregor are on board, but now we hear that Jet Li and Ice Cube are on the verge of signing.

Jet Li will (surprise, surprise) be the main antagonist who will be leading a separate team who will square off with Xander, while Ice Cube will be reprising his role as Darius Stone.

D.J. Caruso (Eagle Eye) is directing from a script by F. Scott Frazier (The Numbers Station), while the producers are Vin Diesel himself, alongside his sister Samantha Vincent, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Joe Roth.

According to the latest reports by MovieWeb, the production is scheduled to take place in Toronto and the Philippines, and even though it doesn’t have a distributor yet, “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” is scheduled for a 2017 release.
