Tony Jaa Joins The “xXx 3” Cast

Thai action star Tony Jaa has signed on to join the cast of “xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage” at Revolution Studios.

A reboot of the early 2000 action spy franchise starring Vin Diesel, the new film sees the “Fast and Furious” actor return to the role fourteen years later to no doubt take on some new bad guys.

Jaa, whose role is being kept under wraps, was rumored for the project last month but only closed his deal this week. He joins Samuel L. Jackson, Jet Li, Nina Dobrev, Deepika Padukone and Ruby Rose in the project.

Diesel, Samantha Vincent, Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are producing. Filming kicks off next month in Toronto and the Dominican Republic.
