Vin Diesel and Co. to Return for xXx 4

xxx4

After the remarkable revitalization of the Fast & Furious series over the past decade, Vin Diesel has been working to revive a couple of his other early 2000s movie franchises with slightly less favourable results. That’s not to say they have been failures, however; they have seemingly just been a lot slower to catch on. 2013’s Riddick made $98 million worldwide on a $35 million budget, but after strong home video sales we will supposedly be getting another sequel and a TV series. Now this week we are also hearing that the xXx series will be back despite the weak domestic box office numbers for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Hit the jump for more details.

According to Variety, xXx 4 is officially in the works thanks to financial backing from a new Los Angeles-based company called H Collective. The company is also funding an Aaron Paul thriller called The Parts You Lose and a new action-comedy from Timur Bekmambetov called Three Sisters. xXx: The Return of Xander Cage made just $44 million in the U.S. but worldwide it pulled in a hefty $350 million ($164 million in China alone).

With that in mind, it’s no surprise that they are planning to bring back much of the film’s international cast as well. It would appear that D.J. Caruso is returning to direct and he has stated on Twitter that meetings are currently happening and that Ruby Rose, Nina Dobrev and Deepika Padukone are all expected to reprise their roles. Are you looking forward to another xXx movie?

    China is becoming responsible for sequels that should not happen. I also heard this week that Amblin is even moving forward with a sequel to ‘A Dog’s Purpose’. The animal abuse controversy seemed to affect the domestic box office, but it made a ton of money in China.

    He’s in better shape than I am, but Vin Diesal looks like someone saran wrapped a chubby dude and then CGI’d out the suran wrap

  • Larry Morgan

    if I was him I would probably not consider being shirtless in movies.
