XXX: Return of Xander Cage | Trailer Released | Watch Now

xXx: Return of Xander Cage (alternatively known as xXx: Reactivated and pronounced “Triple X”) is an upcoming 2017 action film directed by D. J. Caruso and starring Vin Diesel, Deepika Padukone, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Rory McCann and Samuel L. Jackson. It is intended to be the third film in the xXx franchise, and thereby a sequel to both the 2002 film xXx and the 2005 film xXx: State of the Union, though more directly with the first film. The film will be released by Paramount Pictures on January 20, 2017 on 2D, RealD 3D and IMAX 3D.

Extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) comes out of self-imposed exile, thought to be long dead, and is set on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Donnie Yen) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.

Although the character of Xander Cage was supposedly killed in the sequel to explain his absence, Vin Diesel has announced in 2006 that he would be returning as Xander Cage in a second sequel, entitled xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Initially, not only Diesel was set to return, but also the director of xXx, Rob Cohen. Diesel has said that the style and music will also be similar to that of the original film, more of what the fans want, with an emphasis on extreme stunts and with a heavy metal soundtrack. Joe Roth was in talks to produce. According to Cohen, he has also approached Sony, and “now we’re writing a script with the guys who wrote Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator Salvation. So we’ll do another Xander Cage XXX. We’ll bring it up to speed a bit and bring back the extreme sports guy who’s drafted to be a spy.” On June 10, 2009, Cohen dropped out of the production, instead moving to direct the action film Medieval. On August 26, 2009, SlashFilm announced that Ericson Core would be directing and production would start in early 2010.
