‘xXx: The Return of Xander Cage’ Official Synopsis Promises “Deadpan Wit and Bad-Ass Attitude”

Do we really need another xXx movie? Of course not. But because of the ridiculously successful revival of Fast & Furious, Vin Diesel’s 2002 answer to James Bond is getting another leg in the franchise, with Diesel himself returning. With the movie currently filming, Diesel has been using his social media (as he usually does) to drop teaser images for fans. Those images included our first official look at Diesel returning to the tattoo’d, extreme athlete turned spy Xander Cage. While those images have teased some big action sport scenes, we now have a plot that teases the use of those very sports.

The official synopsis for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage has been revealed and it’s as outrageous as you’d think it be. While I don’t think any of us are really begging for this movie, the synopsis is exactly what I expected. When Diesel returned for Fast Five, it was much bigger than any that came before it. So, why wouldn’t his next franchise return follow the same suit? Here’s the official synopsis:

The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise that redefined the spy thriller finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Packed with the series’ signature deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, “xXx: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE will raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.

If you’re like me, you just can’t help but love that “deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude” part, because that’s exactly what you think about when you think of a Vin Diesel action movie, right? D.J. Caruso’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage is slotted for a 2017 release and also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Nina Dobrev, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa and Conor McGregor.
