Following word yesterday of a potential new entry in the Riddick series, Vin Diesel is back on his official Facebook today with an update on another action franchise.
"As you know, the new 'XXX' script finally comes in next month," he writes, "and just this morning people are suggesting Katy Perry as the new X girl. /smile"
The post is accompanied by the below video wherein Diesel shows off a Riddick-themed "MouseBoard" he invented and, as he did with a post yesterday that went rapidly went viral, he dances to Perry's "Dark Horse." Of course, that's a far cry from seeing the musical artist join the franchise, especially since she's just setting off on a year-long tour, but the Fast and the Furious star certainly seems to be a fan.
Diesel starred as leading man Xander Cage in 2002's XXX. Although a sequel, XXX: State of the Union hit theaters in 2005 and starred Ice Cube, playing another XXX agent, Darius Stone. Tentatively titled XXX: The Return of Xander Cage, the third big screen actioner has been planned for years, but now it looks like it may finally be set to become a reality. Check back for further details as soon as they become available.
