Vin Diesel Confirms His Return in 'XXX 3'

23 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vin Diesel, confirmed that the long-gestating project XXX: The Return of Xander Cage is finally happening. However, it won't materialize right away, since the actor will next move on to The Last Witch Hunter alongside Rose Leslie and Michael Caine for director Breck Eisner, and then Universal's Kojak before the XXX sequel, which will be partially shot in the Philippines.

Here's what Vin Diesel had to say about his upcoming slate of projects.

"I'm about to do a movie with Breck Eisner called The Last Witch Hunter where I play a 700-year-old New Yorker, which should be a lot of fun. Working opposite Michael Caine will be a blast. I've always wanted to work with Michael Caine so it'll be the first time I get to work with Michael Caine. Rose Leslie is also gonna be opposite me, she's amazing in Game of Thrones. »

Caine To Battle Crones With Diesel In ‘The Last Witch Hunter’

22 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Since making the wise and profitable move of returning to the Fast And Furious franchise, Vin Diesel has re-established a foothold on the box office following the disappointments of The Chronicles Of Riddick and, most notoriously, Babylon A.D. The third lower key Riddick instalment was played exactly right and with an upcoming voice role in Guardians Of The Galaxy Diesel is now in a position to branch out a bit. Could he fumble the ball again or might the dice tumble in his favour?

The Last Witch Hunter is a high profile project that could answer that question. Already featuring the pumped-up, Droopy-esque one and rising star Rose Leslie (Game Of Thrones, Utopia), the movie has added Michael Caine to the Satanic antics, or “Satantics” if you will. Details on Caine’s role are sketchy, but he will join Diesel’s immortal crone crusher in a fight to prevent the »

22 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It was smart choices that led Matthew McConaughey's McConaissance, and he's going to keep going down that path. We'll see him on the big screen later this year in Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," he's gearing up to shoot Gus Van Sant's "Sea Of Tress" and now it appears he's lining up "The Company Man." The Black List script by Andrew Cypiot tells the true story of CIA agent Edwin Wilson who "went behind enemy lines to secure a weapons contract and report information back to the CIA shortly after the Cold War. He had a meteoric rise until company policies changed and he was unceremoniously fired. Even after, he continued to operate as a man without a country and became public enemy No. 1 to the U.S. Attorney’s office." This project is in the process of finding a director, before it will be shopped around, so it's »

Michael Caine Joins Vin Diesel in The Last Witch Hunter

21 July 2014 11:41 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

If you're anything like me, the thought of Vin Diesel kicking witch ass is one that's got you all sorts of excited for his next genre flick, aptly titled The Last Witch Hunter. Those levels of excitement rise even higher with the latest casting announcement so read on!

Per Variety, Michael Caine has joined the cast of Lionsgate’s supernatural actioner alongside Diesel and Rose Leslie. No word yet on what role he'll be playing, though my money's on Father Dolan, who is listed in the plot synopsis you'll find below.

Breck Eisner is directing the film, which sees a semi-immortal witch hunter (Diesel) wandering the streets of modern New York City who is forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch (Leslie). The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing a plague upon humanity.

He's a semi-immortal warrior who has been keeping humanity safe from the cauldron community for years and finds his latest battle in modern-day New York.
