Samuel L. Jackson set to return for xXx sequel

Well known for his news announcements via social media, Vin Diesel made an extra effort recently to share some casting details on the latest xXx sequel. Now Diesel has revealed via Facebook that  Samuel L. Jackson is set to reprise his role as NSA agent Augustus Gibbons.




And that's not all – Diesel announced via Instagram that current Ultimate Fighting Championship featherweight champ Conor McGregor will have a role in the film. The actor also revealed some concept art for the film, which is currently titled xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage.

The new film has Michael Ferris and John Brancato (Terminator Salvation) writing the script for director D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four) and producer Neal H. Moritz (I Am Legend). There is no set release date for this one just yet, but it appears that the wheels are well and truly in motion for extreme sports rebel turned government asset Xander Cage to head back to our screens before too long.
