Varios selfies (yes, that’s the new form of on-set pictures :-) from the making of “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” have been posted these last couple of weeks. I’ve decided to add them to the photo gallery because they were posted by the film’s director, D.J. Caruso, and none other than Toni Collette herself on her Instagram, which you should check if you haven’t already. Click any of the previews below to launch the set pictures.

Once again it’s very quiet around Toni Collette, as she has proven time and again to successfully stay out of the limelight. Which doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to. Since the beginning of 2016, Toni has wrapped both “Please Stand By” and “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage”. The former stars Dakota Fanning and deals with a young autistic woman who runs away from her caregiver in an attempt to submit her manuscript to a writing competition. The latter needs no introduction – Xander Cage is left for dead after an incident, though he secretly returns to action for a new, tough assignment with his handler Augustus Gibbons. Vin Diesel reprises his famous role with Samuel L. Jackson and Toni Collette in supporting roles (probably as agents?). This will make for a crowded year, which also sees the release of the Noomi Rapace starrer “Unlocked” and the announced “Jasper Jones”, “The Yellow Birds” and “Imperium” (with no further news on those except the initial announcements).

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.
