xXx The Return of Xander Cage Vin Diesel

Vin Diesel brought his xXx franchise back from the brink of death earlier this year with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and while it was far from a hit in America, it performed incredibly well overseas. This success has signaled a growing shift towards diversity and global scale within Xander Cage's world, and it appears that the series will continue to capitalize on that concept. We hope you're ready to head back into the Xander Zone because we can now confirm that a fourth installment in the xXx story is in development.

We have officially learned that Hollywood producers Joe Roth, Jeff Kirschenbaum, Mark Johnson, and Sid Ganis have teamed up to launch a new production company called The H Collective. The new entity has established an extensive slate, and one of the flagship projects on the horizon for The H Collective is a fourth entry in Vin Diesel's extreme sports and spy universe. This announcement doesn't provide us with many details about what the film's specific story will look like (or any talent associated with the project for that matter) but it at the very least guarantees that xXx 4 is on the horizon.

Based upon this report from THR, it seems that the mission statement of The H Collective very much lines up with what made the latest xXx film work as well as it did. Specifically, The Return of Xander Cage featured an incredibly diverse ensemble of famous stars from a wide variety of international markets -- such as Diesel, Deepika Padukone, Donnie Yen, and Ruby Rose -- and that broad appeal seemingly helped translate into strong overseas numbers. Appealing to a global audience has worked for this franchise already, so everyone involved seems eager to double down on that concept.

With xXx 4 film on the way, there's no shortage of directions to take the story. In fact, when The Return of Xander Cage debuted in theaters back in January, I had the opportunity to ask director D.J. Caruso about where the series should go from here. Although he did not give me a precise story outline for xXx 4 to follow, he maintained that the next entry in this series could follow Xander Cage's newly formed team of rogue xXx agents as they take on the corrupt governments of the world. The third film ends with Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) going off of the grid and entrusting Xander with the responsibility of watching "the watchers," thus implying that the next step in this arc will move away from the fight against anarchy and towards a fight against Big Brother. As far as next steps go, that's definitely not a bad one.

CinemaBlend will keep you posted with more details related to the development of xXx 4 as new information is made available to us. For now, check out our movie premiere guide for more up to date information related to the rest of 2017's theatrical debuts!
