EXCL: Vin Diesel is out of XXX 3 ****UPDATE****
Time to call Ice Cube
Hey FOOLS! XXX 3 never seemed like a great idea to me but my love and hope that one day Vin Diesel might become the action mega star this generation is missing keeps me interested in the project. At first, director of the first XXX installment, Rob Cohen had been attached to direct the third but pulled out in June this year and today CineFOOLS have exclusive news, from a trusted source, that Vin Diesel has dropped out of XXX 3. There is no word why Diesel has dropped out but I can only guess that it has something to do with Rob Cohen no longer directing the film or perhaps the rumoured Riddick sequel is actually ready to roll? I'd much prefer that than a third XXX film. Either way this is another blow to the XXX franchise, maybe they can call Ice Cube to make a comeback. Rest assured when Diesel's replacement is announced you'll hear it here. Let's just pray Diesel's next project isn't a Disney film.
****UPDATE**** Hey again FOOLS! I'm just about to head off to Prester John's wedding, I know it is finally that day, and got an email from the guys over at MTV Movies Blog. They've spoken with Vin Diesel's publicist who has "made a few calls on this and I can tell you that it is completely not true." I'm still skeptical, the source who gave us the info that Diesel wasn't involved in XXX 3 is super solid so maybe the publicist is trying to put out a bushfire that wasn't meant to be lit yet. Or maybe we're wrong, time will tell.
