On August 23, 2015, Vin Diesel announced on his Instagram page that "While I was filming xXx, guys on set called me Air Diesel... The time to return has come. Filming starts December in the Philippines. #ILiveForThisShit...". On October 10, 2015, it was reported that director D. J. Caruso would direct the film. Diesel announced that UFC fighter Conor McGregor was cast in a role and that Jackson will be reprising his role as Gibbons. However, in April 2016 it was announced McGregor had dropped out of his planned appearance to focus on training and the UFC; he was replaced by Michael Bisping. On January 1, 2016, Twitch Film reported that Tony Jaa, Jet Li and Deepika Padukone were cast in roles. The following week, Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose were also cast. Dobrev would be playing a witty and sarcastic techie, while Padukone would play a huntress who happens to be Cage's former lover. Rose would play a sniper. Andrey Ivchenko was confirmed to be another villain in the film, given that earlier reports revealed Li to be playing an adversary as well.
It was rumored that Ice Cube, who played the protagonist Darius Stone in the second film in 2005, would reprise his role, which was confirmed in January 2017. On February 6, 2016, Caruso revealed on his Twitter account that Kris Wu had joined the cast, he also added that Wu would be playing a vital character.

The Final Chapter: The Death of Xander Cage
In addition to the deleted scenes on director's cut of the first film, the DVD also contains an extra video titled The Final Chapter: The Death of Xander Cage, a four-minute short film that attempts to tie up some loose ends about the Xander Cage character by showing his glorious demise. This short film was released on 13 April 2005
In the short film, Xander is played by Vin Diesel's stunt double Khristian Lupo (who never shows his face or speaks) while reusing some archival lines spoken by Diesel. It also features Leila Arcieri as Jordan King from the first film and John G. Connolly as Lt. Colonel Alabama "Bama" Cobb, one of the villains from xXx: State of the Union, as the man behind the attack on Xander.
Deepika Padukone returns to co-star with Vin Diesel. Nina Dobrev is expected to return as Agent Becky Clearidge, and it is anticipated that Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Agent Augustus Eugene Gibbons, as well. xXx 4 as of may 2020 does not currently have a release date but It is highly likely that we will see this in theaters sometimes in 2021. Always met with mixed reception, some fans of the franchise (or of Vin Diesel’s muscular profile) are excited, while others feel like the quality of the movies have gone downhill. Diesel, however, always brings in the dough.
While the details of the plot are not yet known, there has been discussion surrounding the possibility of it being a movie about “watching the watchers”. In today’s real-life political world, there is often a concern about the inability to oversee certain government officials. Immediately, the case of Snowden versus the NSA comes to mind. This could be a movie where Cage, and the others, have to fight the “good guys” as the xXx program now has to face off against corrupt government officials or organizations. While this idea was touched on in xXx: State of the Union, it could reveal a bigger ring of involvement. Either way, the fourth installment of xXx promises to be action-packed and filled with some of our favorite, sexy celebrities.
