Vin Diesel is ready for the edge in this first look image from his forthcoming action thriller xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.
Diesel shared the image to his Facebook page, which showcases him as extreme sports star turned secret agent, Xander Cage, along with his new co-star Deepika Padukone.
The long awaited sequel finds Cage left for dead, and with nothing to lose, he is thrown into a new high-stakes scenario.
In addition to Diesel, Samuel L.Jackson will also return to the franchise as Cage’s handler, NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons. The growing cast also includes Jet Li, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, and UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, who will be making his cinematic debut.
Action fans will seriously dig this new sequel which is by-passing 2005’s xXx: State of the Union and is instead returning to the in-your-face action of the original xXx.
Director D.J. Caruso is handling the production, and filming is currently underway in the Philippines.
