Diesel in 'xXx'

Diesel in ‘xXx’

Vin Diesel loves using his personal Facebook page to discuss upcoming projects, and to hype them directly to his rabid fan base. Yesterday, he posted a video that included updates on his upcoming slate of films. 

In the video, he says he was blessed to receive “three great new” scripts this weekend. The first one he addresses is the script for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. He says he read it on Saturday and “was kind of blown away by” it. “One of the great things about this script is how much fun it is,” Diesel says. He describes it as “an extreme sports take on the spy genre.” He also says he relishes how much fun the character of Xander Cage is for him to play. He doesn’t have to go dark, or go troubled. Cage is just a blast, according to the actor.

He then says that earlier that morning (Sunday), he began reading the script for Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy 2. He points out that he’s “probably one of less than 10 people in the world” lucky enough to get this script so early. The script came with a CD. That’s right, “Awesome Mix: Vol 2”!! Diesel says, “I can see why my son is so excited about” Guardians 2. Even though he’s only up to page 93, he thinks “James Gunn is just such a great writer.” Diesel adds, “I read the script and I go, ‘You’re a great director, and you’re this good a writer, too? No wonder Marvel is so excited about what you’re doing.’ Yeah, it’s one of those page turners. You cannot put this script down.

As for the third script, he says it’s for Kojak. However, there’s no update on that project since he hasn’t read it yet, and according to him, “we won’t be doing Kojak anytime soon. At least for a year or more.

So there’s the latest, straight from the horse’s mouth.
