“XXX: The Return of Xander Cage” is set to feature the return of Vin Diesel in the titular role as well as Samuel L Jackson. The film will also feature some new additions one of them being the UFC’s Conor McGregor. On the female side this 3rd installment in the “XXX” series will now feature former (“Vampire Diaries“, “Lets Play Cops”) Nina Dobrev, Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone and Ruby Rose (“Orange is the New Black”).

Dobrev is set to play a tech genius that according to some will be similar to that of Tej in the “Fast and Furious” Franchise, Padukone will play a “Huntress” of sorts who also has a romantic connection to Cage from his past, and finally, Rose is set to play a sniper.

John Brancato has written the script for this film while D.J Caruso will serve as the director. “XXX: The Return of Xander Cage” is expected to arrive into theaters sometime in 2017.
