The third film in the franchise which is currently filming in Toronto, Canada, sees the return of Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, after the failed sequel starring Ice Cube back in the mid 2000s.

This time around the film is being directed by D.J. Caruso, and also stars Jet Li as the villain, Nina Dobrev, and Samuel L. Jackson. The film is now officially titled xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

Check out the official synopsis below:

The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise that redefined the spy thriller finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang 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. Packed with the series’ signature deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, “xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE" will raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.

While I was a fan of the original, I recently revisited the film on Netflix, and it doesn't hold up well at all. So it will be interesting to see how audiences react to the new film. Let us know, are you excited for this film? Sound off in the comments and let us know.
