The xXx 3 set video, shared on Vin Diesel’s Facebook page, shows Samuel L. Jackson, who returns to the role of NSA chief Augustus Gibbons in the film, giving the reason for returning to the franchise for a third time – to kick Harrison Ford’s ass and overtake him at the top of the box office.

Here’s a bit more about the film.

The third explosive chapter of the blockbuster franchise that redefined the spy thriller finds extreme athlete turned government operative Xander Cage (Vin Diesel) coming out of self-imposed exile and on a collision course with deadly alpha warrior Xiang and his team in a race to recover a sinister and seemingly unstoppable weapon known as Pandora’s Box. Recruiting an all-new group of thrill-seeking cohorts, Xander finds himself enmeshed in a deadly conspiracy that points to collusion at the highest levels of world governments. Packed with the series’ signature deadpan wit and bad-ass attitude, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage aims to raise the bar on extreme action with some of the most mind-blowing stunts to ever be caught on film.

xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage also stars Jet Li, Tony Jaa, Indian star Deepika Padukone, Nina Dobrev, and Toni Collette.

Here’s what Diesel said at the time of the commencement of filming on the project.

“The Director, producers and myself sitting in wonder as we take in the artistry of the many craftsmen that have built these amazing sets. You can tell the first day what level of crew you will be working with and it is clear that XxX has the very best. Grateful for the opportunity to make magic… The years of development, the months of preproduction… And here we are at the beginning of production.”

D.J. Caruso is directing the film, which is set for release in January of next year. Check out the xXx 3 set video below.
