Posted 2017/06/19 0 0
Prepare to see Vin Diesel doing extreme sports while spying all over the place again in xXx 4!
Vin Diesel brought his xXx franchise back from the brink of death earlier this year with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, and while it was far from a hit in America, it performed incredibly well overseas. Now, as reported by THR, franchise producers Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum have partnered with Sid Ganis and Mark Johnson to form self-financing production outfit The H Collective. Their first announced projects as a group is headlined by xXx 4, which will be produced by at least Roth, Kirschenbaum and presumably Vin Diesel. Details are thin on the ground, but Diesel has expressed an interest in reprising as Xander Cage in the past. There's also no release date just yet, but Diesel has a lot going on these days. He's providing the voice of Groot in Avengers: Infinity War, and he's got two more Fast and Furious movies on the way.
Producer Joe Roth commented on the deal with H Collective to back the next xXx:
In today’s Hollywood, it requires strong partners to produce and finance such big-budget movies as the xXx series, and The H Collective is a welcome and exciting new company that we look forward to working with.
The H Collective plans to finance four projects per year in a wide mix of budgets and genres including family/comedy, action adventure, horror and prestige. The company also has an exclusive partnership with Chinese entertainment conglomerate Beijing Culture.
Other projects on their slate include:
– The Aaron Paul-led “The Parts You Lose” about a young deaf boy who comes across a wounded and dangerous man in a snowdrift. An unlikely friendship develops between the two, one which will have grave consequences.
– “Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov and writer Derek Haas re-teaming on action-comedy “Three Sisters” starring Ruby Rose.
– The action/comedy “White House Chef” about a cook who must save the First Family after he becomes unintentionally involved in a secret terrorist plot.
– “A Children’s Song” – Two competing music scholarship students discover that their original compositions are based on a single family song with a story dating back to a time when 20,000 Jews immigrated to Shanghai during WWII.
– The urban legend horror-thriller “Raven Road” penned by Brian Anderson.
