Sequel king Vin Diesel, who has two confirmed sequels, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Fast and the Furious 8, in the pipeline, and who's expressed interest in sequels for two other properties: The Iron Giant and The Last Witch Hunter talked about the third film in the xXx series. Diesel just announced star of the original xXx, Samuel L. Jackson, would return.  

Despite Diesel's disappearance from xXx: State of the Union (which would go on to star Ice Cube) Jackson reprised his role of everyone's favorite National Security Agency (NSA) Agent with a busted face, Augustus Gibbons, searching for a new NSA spy after Xander Cage (Diesel) was killed. Diesel, no stranger to series returns (e.g. Fast and the Furious) is rising from the dead for xXx:The Return of Xander Cage. There Jackson and Diesel—both raking in that Marvel money, with Jackson's role as Nick Fury—will reunite. Audiences can count on the two arguing just like old times.

An excited Diesel posted an update on the film, saying it will soon begin production. No release date has been set yet.
