Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose to Join Vin Diesel in ‘XXX 3’

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage

“The Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev and “Orange is the New Black” actress Ruby Rose are in talks to join action star Vin Diesel in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

If the actresses make a deal with the studio they will also join Samuel L. Jackson and UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor in the xXx sequel. The trade adds that Dobrev will play a witty and sarcastic techie while Rose will play a sniper.

Reportedly, the Indian star Deepika Padukone will play a “huntress” who has a history with Cage (Diesel) but the outlet made no mention of previously rumored international action stars Jet Li and Tony Jaa. We’ll have to wait and see if they have really been tapped to star in the film.

Production for the third installment of the xXx movie series is scheduled to begin later this month and will film in Toronto and the Phillipines. Such an odd movie to get a late sequel (fast-forward 14 years), but good for Diesel. D.J. Caruso is directing from the script provided by F. Scott Frazier.

No official plot details or release date have been revealed for The Return of Xander Cage yet.
