ICYMI: Vin Diesel Buys The Rights To 'xXx'!
 
Triple X or xXx… what a conundrum of how to write this one, but let me preface that, no, this is not at all about adult entertainment. Whether Vin Diesel buys or doesn’t buy for his personal DVD collection is his business only, however when it comes to him purchasing film franchises, than it becomes everybody’s business, as his production company One Race, and another company called The H Collective, have just purchased the franchise rights to xXx.
 
 
 
This news comes just as the fourth installment (third to star Diesel) has production getting underway to begin filming in December of this year. What the future holds exactly for this franchise is not known at this time, but it’s a safe bet that Diesel and Company have plans to make more and follow in the footsteps of his other money-printing action franchise The Fast and the Furious.
