Production on Vin Diesel‘s XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE is gearing up, and so we’re going to start hearing more and more about the cast of the film getting rounded out. We know Donnie Yen will play the film’s villain. We’ve also heard rumors that Ice Cube will return. Now comes word that they’ve found Diesel’s love interest in the film, which will mark the actor’s return to the series. In the original XXX, his female counterpart was Asia Argento. This time around, he’ll be romancing none other than 2015 MISS UNIVERSE winner Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.

Oh. 

Wait. What?

Yikes. I have to apologize. I will take responsibility for this. 

The woman Diesel will actually be cozying up to in XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE is 2015 Miss Universe Runner-Up, Miss Colombia, Ariadna Gutierrez. 

XXX: THE RETURN OF XANDER CAGE will be directed by D.J. Caruso, and comes out on January 20, 2017.
