Having already added Samuel L. Jackson and UFC star Conor McGregor to its cast, Vin Diesel’s third “xXx” film, “The Return of Xander Cage” is set to boast even more heavy-hitting action stars, as Columbia Pictures has reportedly tapped action movie legends Jet Li and Tony Jaa to star in the film.

According to Twitch Film, Jaa and Li, along with Indian film star Deepika Padukone (who they say will be “lining up with the bad guys”), have joined the “xXx 3” cast in yet-to-be-determined roles.


Jaa previously worked with Diesel for “Furious 7,” which has gone on to be the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time.

“xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” began shooting in the Philippines in December, and will move production to Toronto for February, where it will shoot through to May.

Directed by D.J. Caruso, “xXx: The Return of Xander Cage” hasn’t been given a release date.
