Furious 8 New York City

Fans anxious for some sequels starring Vin Diesel are going to get their fill of them over the next couple years. In addition to returning as the voice of Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 next year, Diesel is also sticking with his signature role in the next installment of the long-running Fast and Furious franchise and a return to his early action role from xXx. And since Marvel does a fine job teasing one of those, Diesel has taken it upon himself to hype up the other two.

Taking to social media this past weekend, Diesel posted a couple updates for fans anxious to know what’s going on with Furious 8, with a slightly different official title now, and xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage. See what Diesel had to say about both after the jump! Read More »

Jackson was slated to return as Agent Augustus Eugene Gibbons. Now two new cast members have been revealed, and the studio is really going for international appeal.
