It looks like Vin Diesel is ready to go extreme again in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, the third installment in the spy thriller franchise.

Diesel plays Cage, an extreme athlete turned government operative, who is left for dead after an incident but secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson).

Cage recruits an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts (which includes Orange Is the New Black actress Ruby Rose and The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev), as they try to take down the deadly alpha warrior named Xiang (Donnie Yen) and recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box, which is also tied to a worldwide government conspiracy. Natch. Watch the trailer above!

xXx: Return of Xander Cage is getting a January 20, 2017 release from Paramount Pictures.
