Paramount To Handle Vin Diesel’s “xXx 3”

Paramount Pictures has hopped onboard as worldwide distributor for “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage,” the Vin Diesel-led third installment of the spy franchise.

Paramount takes over for Sony Pictures which released the previous two films. Revolution Studios, Roth Kirschenbaum Films and One Race Films are producing the D.J. Caruso-directed film which also includes action star Tony Jaa.

A new synopsis is also out: “Xander Cage coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang (Jaa) and his team in a race to recover a sinister and unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments.”

Filming began the other week with part of the production taking place at the Pinewood Dominican Republic Studios.
