Looks Like We’re Getting A Sequel To XXX: RETURN OF XANDER CAGE

This is not a drill, people.

Here's something you might not know: the Birth.Movies.Death. crew loved DJ Caruso's XXX: Return Of Xander Cage. We talk about it all the time, in the same hyperbolic terms one might usually reserve for year-end Oscar bait movies. XXX 3 was big, dumb and ridiculous - borderline cartoonish, if we're being honest - but holy shit did we enjoy having it happen to us. Hell, some of us even preferred it to Fate Of The Furious. It's really that much fun.

Anyway, here's some good news, via Variety

"The Los Angeles-based H Collective has signed production deals with high-profile Hollywood producers Sid Ganis and Nancy Hult Ganis, Mark Johnson (“Breaking Bad,” The Chronicles of Narnia series) and Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Maleficent”).

The H Collective will be financing and/or producing four projects a year over the next four years, in four categories — family/comedy, action/adventure, horror/genre and prestige."

So, what's this gotta do with XXX: Return Of Xander Cage? Well, Variety goes on to report that one of the first projects being funded by the H Collective is a sequel to that film. XXX 3 earned $350M worldwide (almost half of that take coming from China), so a sequel was probably inevitable...but now we know the funding's in place for one. This is, of course, just the first of many steps towards getting XXX: Xander Cage's Ongoing Return into theaters, but whatever: we are hyped.

Listen, if you still haven't seen XXX: Return Of Xander Cage, we feel sorry for you. You need to rectify that. Rent it via Amazon Prime, blind-buy it via the link below, quit your job and drive to the nearest Best Buy right now - whatever it takes, definitely make a point to see this movie. If you don't have fun being beaten over the head with its very particular, very silly brand of exxxtreme machismo, you may already be dead.

Stay tuned for more on XXX 4 as it becomes available.
