vin diesel Rumor Patrol: Vin Diesel Still Doing xXx 3

There was a rumor floated recently by CineFools that Vin Diesel had dropped out of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.  If you heard that rumor and freaked out, you can now turn red ’cause Diesel’s publicist emailed MTV and said it was untrue.  This is exactly what was said in that email:

I made a few calls on this and I can tell you that it is completely not true.

The action-packed xXx franchise began with Diesel in 2002, when he played the extreme sports athlete-turned government operative, Xander Cage.  xXx: State of the Union (2005) ripped Cage away from us and replaced him with Ice Cube’s Darius Stone. The third installment in the franchise is to be directed by Ericson Core, who brought us Invincible and was the cinematographer on Daredevil.

It was suspected the Deisel had dropped out of The Return of Xander Cage because director Rob Cohen, who helmed xXx and directed Deisel in 2001′s The Fast and the Furious was not involved in xXx 3.  While Cohen is indeed off the upcoming xXx, Deisel’s still ridin’ that pony.

Now, did we learn anything from ripping down our Vin Diesel posters before getting confirmation on that nasty rumor?

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is to be unleashed like shameful gossip upon the masses in 2011.

  1. The sequel was garbage but the original with him in it was pretty good. I’d watch another installment.

  2. +1

    and good Lord, the man has some guns.

  3. i totally agree M-Cat!!
    the second was just horrible..
    so if a third is coming with diesel, i will watch it:)

  4. first one = fun and enjoyable
    second one = completely awful, How does Ice Cube keep getting work
    third one = see first one, if it has Vinny D

  5. the first one wasn’t bad, but some of the stuff was real over the top

  6. I’m in the minority…I actually enjoyed the 2nd one. I’m in for a third.

  7. Didn’t they play it off like he died in the Ice Cube piece of crap?

  8. What they should make is another Riddick

  9. @ Foopher,
    Yea!! y havent they made a sequel to that? Riddick is badass and some of Vin’s best line of work

  10. @fhooper
    totally agree

  11. Yeah I agree with you guys that The Chronicles of Riddick was awesome! They have been talking about doing another recently so you guys may get your wish!

  12. I didn’t care all that much for Chronicles of Riddick. Mostly because it was just so different from Pitch Black, which was amazing. Though I’d be down for a third Riddick more so than another xXx.

  13. Vin why waste your time with this role when Riddick is calling you !!!!!!!

    xXx3 = lame

  14. Vin Diesel was the man, he was called this generations Clint Eastwood. Vin if you ever read this dont do another Disney. You were on the verge of greatness. Now if you can get this XXX3 on the screen, maybe if theres an Expendables 2 (whatcha think people?), you could do that and everybody might forget and forgive your recent flops.

  15. wake me when it’s over…….

  16. Vin jesteś najlepszy.!

  17. i like
