Vin Diesel Reveals Director Of Third xXx Movie

Vin Diesel's return to the xXx franchise has a director. XXX 3 will be directed by DJ Caruso, whose past work includes I Am Number Four, Disturbia and Eagle Eye. Diesel revealed Caruso's involvement with the film during an interview with io9, but noted that we might not see xXx 3 in the near future due to Diesel's busy filming schedule.

"D.J. Caruso is directing [xXx 3], which is exciting," Diesel told the website. "The big question now is which will race to production first now that F. Gary Gray is on [Furious 8]? Will xXx race to production first or will Fast race to production first?" Gray was announced as the director of Furious 8 earlier this week.

Diesel starred in the first xXx movie in 2002, one year after he appeared in the first Fast and the Furious movie. Scheduling conflicts forced him to drop of the sequel, xXx: State of the Union, leading to his character Xander Cage getting killed off-screen. However, Diesel has talked about returning for a third xXx movie for years and it looks like Columbia Pictures is finally pushing the long gestating project into production.
