Vin Diesel acquires right for xXx film franchise; fourth film in development

One Race is working in conjunction with The H Collective to secure the rights from previous owner Revolution Studios.

Previously, Caruso has talked about his vision for another installment in the franchise, saying that he's interested in exploring a conflict between the xXx team and various corrupt governments around the world. According to news from The Hollywood Reporter, Diesel has put together a deal with a finance company, The H Collective, to procure the rights to the xXx brand from Paramount and take ownership of the brand himself. It is less of an ensemble action piece which the Fast and Furious franchise has become and can be the sole action hero in this one.


During my time at Paramount I was lucky to be involved in the development and distribution of xXx: Return of Xander Cage. For example, Return of Xander Cage's $346 million from a $86 million budget made it one of 2017's big action movies.

The fourth instalment will see an important change in the xXx leadership. He voices "Groot" in both the "Guardians of the Galaxy" films and will also appear in Marvel's "Avengers: Infinity War" this April. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.


Deadline notes that the Return of Xander Cage found massive success outside the United States, particularly in China, where the bulk of the film's overseas profit came from.

After xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage, the film which marked Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone's foray in Hollywood, the xXx franchise is set to get a fourth installment. 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".


Diesel flew down to India to promote Return of Xander Cage alongside Deepika.
