XXX 3 coming...

Nov. 17, 2008by:

Because one few-years-too-late Vin Diesel sequel isn't enough (see FAST AND FURIOUS), how about another for you? Michael Ferris and John Brancato (TERMINATOR 3) are in talks to write a script for XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE because all the kids out there were up late at night staring at their ceiling wondering, "Where is Xander Cage and when will he come back?..." Now this is not the first we've heard about a third XXX movie - the project was first announced back in September - but I never thought much would come of it. I mean a XXX3? Isn't that a little presumptuous that the world even wants another movie as about an extreme sports athlete recruited by the government to run secret missions? And am I the only one that finds it curious that at one time Diesel refused to star in sequels to the movies that made him a star (THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS and XXX) only to quickly return to them when his career didn't pan out the way he hoped? For all those worrying yes, Rob Cohen will return as well so we got that going for us. Which is nice.

Extra Tidbit: Please don't come back for this Samuel L. Jackson.

Hannibal

I'm more interested in the Hannibal movie Vin has spent the last four years talking about. Where the hell is that?

PS

Vin Diesel needs to work on original material, not total crap.

Not A Good Popcorn Movie

This is not a good popcorn movie. Bad acting, stupid plot, poor script and boring action. That doesn't even make an entertaining movie. Rob Cohen is Brett Ratner.

wasn't the original XxX a result of inter studio wrangling over the rights for Spider-Man? That's how I heard it anyway. The first film was almost totally uninspired, though the end credits animation was incredible as I recall - sort of 3D rendering of tattoo designs - really pretty. Didn't see XxX2 and wouldn't bother with a third either. I would need to get amazing reviews to tempt me back.

I am not the only one to remember that Xander was killed off. And they could conceivably ignore the Ice Cube sequel if they don't directly refer to this one as number 3. Kind of like Bloodsport 2. Not a direct sequel to the original, and was talked of being ignored when there was "news" that JCVD would come back for the real Bloodsport 2.

I liked the first, loathed the second...of course they did mention the death of Xander in the second film, and even made a short film about his death (released in the XXX special edition DVD)...my guess is they'll ignore those completely...

With enough budget...

Any director with a good stunt crew could make this movie. Doesn't take a huge amount of "directorial" talent.

These types of movies, with XXX being a prime example, are like being the champs at the special olympics, you win, but you're still retarded.

Stop hatin'

xXx was a good popcorn flick... period.

That's what Cohen is good for: no brain, amped up, action distraction. If you disagree, you're lying. As much as it may kill you to admit, this put him ahead of Ratner for the the most part.

As for Sam Jackson, he'll eat a phonebook if you give him $5.

That is funny

I have thought the same thing. I mean why would he does these now when he was to good for them then? I love Diesel and think he has a lot of talent but he picks bad projects and doesnt work with enough great directors, who are the ones that really make you a star.

I didn't even see the second one, but...

someone told me the way they explained Ice Cube was to say that Vin's character was dead. So they have that going for them. Which is nice.

oh lord

There is only one man that is a bigger piece of crap than Rob Cohen and that's Uwe Boll.

If Rob does direct(destroy)another XXX I'm out. A 1st year student in film school could do better than that turd on a brainless movie.

I enjoyed the first one.

The second one sucked because who the hell can believe that a fat midget troll can be a super ass kicking secret agent.

Glad that Diesel is back for the 3rd!

I agree with some of what has been said in the article and some of what has been said below. I liked the first one for some reason, but the second one is umberable (sp?). I'm happy Diesel is back, and I too want Rammstein back, but not Argento. I hate that Cohen is back for this, he's such a piece of shit director (btw, that's who you should be hatin on, not Ratner and/or McG, he's way worst). Also, Sam Jackson shouldn't come back, these movies were by far his worst role. Hopefully, it can be

I think I'm one of only a few people that really enjoyed this movie. I say bring it on. The second one sucked, it wasn't about X-Games meets Bond.
