Vin Diesel Teases Next “Furious,” “xXx” Films

Vin Diesel has used his social media channels over the weekend to tease his upcoming roles in both the eighth “Fast and Furious” film and “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage”. First up he posted a New York picture which effectively works as teaser poster for the former which seems to be going by the moniker of “Fast 8”.

Then he teased that the third “xXx” film will boast a ‘long board sequence’ which he’s begun training for. Filming on that project starts later this month in Toronto and the Philippines.

The material comes as a report has gone up at We Got This Covered that suggests the character of Monica Fuentes (Eva Mendes) will return for the eighth “Fast and Furious” following her leading role in the second film and cameo during the end credits of the fifth.

Should her return go well, the character may get her own spinoff film as a few months ago the studio plans to expand the franchise into a potneital full cinematic universe with story lines for various characters already planned out.

“Furious 8” opens in theaters April 14th 2017. “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” has yet to set a date.
