‘xXx 3:’ Vin Diesel Starrer Movie To Kick Off Filming This December in Philippines

Vin Diesel has been on a high recently. Having consolidated his position as an action star, fans now only look out for which movie will Vin do next? He has been extremely successful especially with sequels of his previous movies. After “Furious 7” stormed the box office with more than billion dollars of collections, “Furious 8” was announced to be releasing in 2017. Fans should be excited even more as Vin has announced a sequel to another franchise as well.

According to Screen Rant, Vin Diesel has been in demand off-lately. Universal Studios has expressed their interest in making “Riddick 4” in near future apart from Sony asking the actor to keep some dates free for “The Last Witch Hunter” sequel even when the first installment has not released yet. But the actor has given a green light to an altogether different franchise.

“xXx” that had the actor starring in it as a sports enthusiast and athlete turned a reluctant spy will be getting a third installment with Vin himself returning in it. Vin had to shoot for “The Pacifier” and for the same reason he could not star in the second installment of the franchise, which ended up being made with Ice Cube in the lead and turned out as a massive disaster at the box office.

Luckily the third installment, which is tentatively being called “xXx: The Return of Xandar Cage” has been in development for a while now and recently confirmed to start filming this December in Philippines. It will be interesting to know as to how Vin’s character Xandar who was supposedly assassinated in the second installment is brought back to life in this one. Maybe Vin’s character Xandar somehow faked his own death and will now be returning because he is needed. It remains to be seen how the makers plan his return.

Comicbook.com reported that Vin made the announcement on his official Instagram account stating how he was called Air Diesel when he was shooting for the first installment and now its time for him to return. The movie will start shooting this December in the Philippines.
