A special message is revealed in a promotional photo for xXx: Return of Xander Cage and it comes with big revelations.

The titular hero played by Vin Diesel is believed to be long dead. That is why he was not in the second film of the xXx franchise, xXx: State of the Union. The photo reveals that he is, indeed, alive. He might have just faked his own death and lived in hiding.

Vin Diesel is back to reprise his titular role that he skipped in the second movie to shoot for The Pacifier.

In the third installment, Xander Cage will come out of his self-imposed exile when the world once again faces a threat. He will be on a clash with alpha warrior Xiang, played by Donnie Yen, to recover the sinister and deadly apocalyptic weapon called Pandora’s Box, as per Cinema Blend.

The plot will pick up from the two previous films: xXx (2002) and xXx: State of the Union (2005). Cage’s spy adventures for the National Security Agency started reluctantly, with him being a stuntman, sports enthusiast and rebellious athlete.

His first mission was to creep in some potential Russians terrorists.

In the second movie, Xander was believed to be dead. Another agent, Darius Stone, played by Ice Cube, picked up the mission.

The cast is joined by Avengers and Kingman: The Secret Service’s Samuel Jackson, The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev and Indian film actress Deepika Padukone, to name a few. Padukone will take the role of Diesel’s lover in the movie, according to The American Bazaar.

Eagle Eye‘s D. J. Caruso will direct the movie from the script by writers F. Scott Frazier and Chad St. John.

The next year is going be a busy year for the Riddick actor. From voicing Groot of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to driving high-speed cars in Fast 8. He is going to promote all three films in 2017.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage will hit theatres on January 20, 2017.
