Rob Cohen and Vin Diesel in for another round of XXX action

Sources say that producer Joe Roth is in talks with Columbia Pictures about a third XXX film, which will supposedly be called XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, which will star Vin Diesel and will be directed by Rob Cohen. Now, correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Xander Cage (Vin Diesel's character) supposed to be dead? I mean, his death was the reason that a sequel, XXX: State of the Union (starring Ice Cube and directed by Lee Tamahori), could be made, right? Anyway, ignoring the blatant inconsistency and predictability of the movie (let me guess, Xander Cage didn't die, cue gasp of shock), having Vin Diesel starring in another action movie (without the actual acting) is even less appealing than ever. I mean, I get it, a tough looking guy with lots of muscles, bad guy gone good, action stunts galore, but really, who could ever learn anything remotely important from a film entitled: XXX?

By the way, Bablyon A.D.? Poor decision mister Vin Diesel. Poor decision.
