xXx 4 With Vin Diesel Is Still in Early Development


A fourth xXx movie is still in early development, though audiences could be waiting a while for the return of Xander Cage. The last audiences saw of Vin Diesel’s action hero was in 2017’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which saw huge box office success despite middling reviews. Vin Diesel is also set to return as the character Riddick in the upcoming film Riddick: Furya, which will explore the character’s origin.

A fourth movie in the action franchise xXx is still in early development courtesy of production company The H Collective. Audiences have not seen Vin Diesel’s tattooed action hero since 2017’s xXx: Return of Xander Cage, but it sounds like a fourth movie is still on the cards. Though it could take a while…

According to a report from Deadline, xXx 4 is still on the upcoming slate of production company The H Collective, alongside a sequel to the 2019 horror/superhero movie Brightburn and several other projects.

The first xXx was released way back in 2002 and introduced audiences to Vin Diesel as Xander “XXX” Cage, a thrill-seeking extreme sports enthusiast, death-defying stuntman, and anti-establishment activist who is talked into becoming a different kind of spy by the National Security Agency. Starring Asia Argento, Marton Csokas and Samuel L. Jackson alongside Diesel, the first xXx was met with middling reviews but saw huge success at the box office.

Such success spawned a sequel, xXx: State of the Union, in 2005, but brought Ice Cube into the fray as a replacement for Diesel. Mauled by critics, xXx: State of the Union was a box-office bomb, leading to a long wait for the third movie, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, which brings back Diesel alongside Donnie Yen, Deepika Padukone, Kris Wu, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Nina Dobrev, and Toni Collette.

While the third outing was once again met with mixed reviews, xXx: Return of Xander Cage saw even bigger success at the box office than the first outing, with many now hoping a fourth movie will materialize.

So far, details for xXx 4 are thin, but it is expected that director D.J. Caruso will return to the helm, with previous reports revealing that Vin Diesel will star alongside Jay Chou (The Green Hornet) and Zoe Zhang.

A fourth xXx movie is not the only quartet that Vin Diesel is due to complete, with the action star also set to reprise the role of Riddick in Riddick: Furya.

A comeback that has now been a decade in the making, Richard B. Riddick was first introduced over two decades ago in the isolated sci-fi horror outing Pitch Black, returning for the much grander The Chronicles of Riddick in 2004. The last audiences saw of Vin Diesel as Riddick was in director David Twohy’s Riddick back in 2013, which saw the notorious antihero being hunted by a band of mercenaries on a desolate planet.

Riddick: Furya will be written and directed once again by David Twohy alongside creators Jim and Ken Wheat and is expected to delve into the mysterious origin of the character. “In the new film, Riddick finally returns to his home world, a place he barely remembers and one he fears might be left in ruins by the Necromongers,” the official description of Riddick: Furya reads. “But there he finds other Furyans fighting for their existence against a new enemy. And some of these Furyans are more like Riddick than he could have ever imagined.”

Before any of that, Diesel will first wrap up the Fast and Furious franchise with Fast & Furious 11, which is scheduled to be released on April 4, 2025.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
