Does the name Xander Cage mean anything to you?
It's been over a decade since Vin Diesel blessed us with his brawn and razor-sharp instincts as Xander Cage in xXx. But do not fret, fellow action-lovers.
Diesel is back in 2017 with xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage. Though not much has been released regarding the characters, the cast is shaping up to be just as strong as Vin's biceps.
1. Samuel L. Jackson
2. Nina Dobrev
3. Ruby Rose
4. Jet Li
Yes, that's right folks. The one and only Jet Li has been cast as Diesel's adversary.
Li will be playing the leader amongst his own crew who will put up a fair fight against Diesel. But will he be the ultimate villain that Xander must defeat? Revolution Studios' COO Scott Hemming says:
"We are extremely excited to have Jet Li join the cast of xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage as Raif, who is pitted against Vin Diesel’s Xander Cage, and watch these two in action as they raise the bar with some of the most incredible stunts on film."
xXx 3 will be Li's first film since 2014's The Expendables 3, and I am beyond ecstatic to see just how creatively crazy and extreme the stunts are going to be.
