xXx 4 Production Slated to Start December 2018; Vin Diesel to Star and Produce with D.J. Caruso Returning as Director

The H Collective announced on April 17 that they have acquired the rights from Revolution Studios to the global hit "xXx" film franchise alongside its star and producer, Vin Diesel and his One Race Films. Revolution Studios retains its rights to the first three films.

D.J. Caruso (xXx: Return of Xander Cage, I Am Number Four, Disturbia) will return to direct xXx 4 with Diesel reprising his role as “Xander Cage.”

Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum will produce with Diesel, Samantha Vincent for One Race Films and The H Collective. Production is slated for December 2018.

The "xXx" franchise, which includes "xXx," "xXx: State of the Union" and "xXx: Return of Xander Cage" has collectively grossed nearly $1 billion at the worldwide box-office.
The H Collective CEO Nic Crawley said, “During my time at Paramount I was lucky to be involved in the development and distribution of xXx: Return of Xander Cage. The response from the Chinese box office was unprecedented. Bringing the next installment of the xXx franchise to The H Collective complements our diversified slate and mission to produce content for a global audience.”
Diesel has starred in and produced the five highest-grossing films in the massively successful “Fast” franchise.

He voices ‘Groot’ in both the Guardians of the Galaxy films and will also appear in Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War this April.

Caruso directed the franchise’s previous installment "xXx: Return of Xander Cage" and is best known for his work on DreamWork’s thriller "Eagle Eye" starring Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan, as well as "I am Number Four" for Touchstone Pictures and Disturbia for Paramount.

His TV credits include “The Shield” for FX which earned two Golden Globe® wins.

The H Collective, who will finance "xXx 4" alongside investment partners including Sparkle Roll Media, HCH Media, Dadi Cinema and Angeleno Studio, is currently in production on an Untitled Horror Feature produced by James Gunn starring Elizabeth Banks and is also in post-production on Christopher Cantwell’s "The Parts You Lose."

Diesel is represented by CAA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Caruso is represented by CAA and Media Talent Group.
