Vin Diesel, you recidivist, you. Since returning to the Fast/Furious series, the smooth-headed actor has now agreed to say "Hey, it's me again" to another of his former masterpieces, Three X's: The Movie! From Variety:

Columbia Pictures hasn’t tired of "XXX," particularly if it’s a Diesel-powered vehicle. (Get it?)

The studio is in discussions with producer Joe Roth for a new version of "XXX," one that would bring back Vin Diesel as star and Rob Cohen as director.

The duo teamed on the 2002 original, which starred Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports enthusiast who gets drafted by the government for a dangerous mission.

The third incarnation has a title, "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage," but no script.

Oh, to be a hypothetical fan of Vin Diesel who was put into cryogenic hibernation in 2002 and just now awoken. If I were to ever wish that damnable fate on myself, it would be today.
