Now that’s some fun casting news. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Toni Collette is joining the ever-growing cast of xXx3: The Return of Xander Cage, the Vin Diesel-starring reboot of the 2002 action pic. The project is gearing up for a production start in February and already has a call sheet that includes Tony Jaa, Jet Li, Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev, Bollywood star Deepika Padukone and Orange Is the New Black breakout Ruby Rose as well as Samuel L. Jackson. D.J. Caruso is directing the pic, which has a script by F. Scott Frazier, and plans on shooting in Toronto and the Dominican Republic. Plot details are being kept under wraps but insiders say it involves two teams of badasses that go head-to-head. Collette will play a bureaucrat in the intelligence service. Joe Roth and Jeff Kirschenbaum are producing xXx3 along with Diesel and Samantha Vincent. Vince Totino and Scott Hemming of Revolution Studios, which was rebooted two years when it was bought by hedge fund Fortress, are shepherding actor and distributor deals for the film.
