Jet Li, Tony Jaa & Deepika Padukone Join Vin Diesel in Next ‘xXx’ Movie

xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage

No news these days, but Twitch Film is reporting that D.J. Caruso helmed xXx sequel has added international action stars Jet Li and Tony Jaa – fresh off working with Vin Diesel on the latest Fast film – along with Bollywood megastar Deepika Padukone.

The third film in the xXx film series will see the return of Samuel L. Jackson as NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons, the man responsible for turning notorious underground thrill-seeker Xander Cage (Diesel) into the super-spy. The UFC fighter Conor McGregor would also have a role in the xXx sequel, tentatively titled xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

Terminator Salvation scribes Michael Ferris and John Brancato penned the most recent script.

I wasn’t going to care about this franchise but they have my attention with this casting news. God-awful title though.
