[27.10.2004] Bei IESB gibt es ein Video-Interview mit Ice Cube...

[30.09.2004] Blackfilm.com sprach mit Ice Cube über "xXx 2"...
[...] HOW IS THE PRODUCTION SCHEDULE GOING?
Cube: We've been shooting since July. Everything is going pretty good for the most part.
WHAT IS YOUR CHARACTER LIKE?
Cube: Darius Stone is pretty much one of those Seal-type training dudes, a Black Ops kinda cat. He's definitely all business. [...]
HOW IS YOUR CHARACTER DIFFERENT FROM VIN DIESEL IN THE ORIGINAL FILM?
Cube: In the first movie, Vin Diesel was the x-games type of dude, you know, extreme sports. The agency threatened to send him to jail if he didn't go to work for them. In the sequel, I play a guy who used to be in Samuel's unit, who is already locked up in a military jail for disobeying orders from the General. [...]

Filming has begun in Los Angeles on Revolution Studios' XXX: State of the Union, the sequel to the 2002 summer blockbuster XXX, it was announced by Revolution Studios Partner Todd Garner. Filming will also take place in Baltimore and Washington, DC. The film is directed by Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day) and stars Ice Cube as the new agent XXX and Samuel L. Jackson, who will reprise his role as NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons. XXX: State of the Union will be released by Columbia Pictures on May 13th, 2005.
The film is being produced for Revolution Studios by Neal Moritz (Stealth, S.W.A.T., XXX, The Fast and the Furious) and Arne Schmidt (Big Fish, XXX, We Were Soldiers) and is written by Simon Kinberg (Mr. and Mrs. Smith). Revolution Studios' Garner and Rob Cohen (director of Stealth, XXX, and The Fast and the Furious) are serving as executive producers.
In the follow up to the successful franchise film XXX, NSA Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), fresh off the success of his last renegade recruitment, once again finds himself in need of an outsider. Gibbons and his new agent (Ice Cube), also code-named "XXX," must track a dangerous military splinter group led by Willem Dafoe that is conspiring to overthrow the U.S. Government in the nation's capital.
"'XXX' was a tremendously rewarding experience for us, and we are thrilled to be continuing this exciting franchise with 'XXX: State of the Union,'" said Revolution Studios' Garner. "Ice Cube is a talented and diverse actor and Lee Tamahori is a gifted director, and their unique abilities will make the second film in this franchise as fresh and exciting as the first film."


[02.07.2004] SF Wire sprach mit Willem Dafoe über seine Rolle in "xXx 2"...
[...] "I'll be doing some action stuff," Dafoe said in an interview. "Kicking and punching. I think I know how to do that."
Dafoe, who made a mark as the Green Goblin in 2002's original Spider-Man movie, added that he'll insist on doing as much of his own stunt work as possible to preserve his stamp on the character. "I like doing [stunts], unless it's a skill that I can't learn quickly, like car stuff," Dafoe said. "I've got no pride in that. That doesn't matter. But when I see a stunt guy do anything that I should do, it's like someone doing the scene for you, because the physical stuff so roots everything else that it freaks me out. If I see, for instance, in post [production] that they didn't bring me back [for a simple shot], so they hire a some guy dressed in my costume walking away, I'll say, 'That is not my walk. That is not my ass.' It's all part of it. So I think it's important to do that."


[30.06.2004] HollywoodReporter.com meldet...
"Scott Speedman, Nona Gaye and Sunny Mabrey are feeling the "XXX" fever, joining Ice Cube, Samuel L. Jackson, Willem Dafoe and Michael Roof in the sequel "XXX: State of the Union." Lee Tamahori is directing for Revolution Studios, Columbia Pictures and producer Neal Moritz. Shooting starts in mid-July. The latest installment, penned by Simon Kinberg ("Mr. and Mrs. Smith"), is largely set in Washington and is described as a thriller."

[13.05.2004] CS! meldet...
Scott Speedman (Underworld) is joining the cast of the Revolution Studios sequel XXX: State of the Union, which Lee Tamahori begins filming this summer.
Speedman will play National Security Agency agent and adrenaline junkie Kyle Steele, who works alongside the XXX program's newest recruit (Ice Cube) to thwart a political power struggle in the nation's capital.
Samuel L. Jackson returns for the second installment and Willem Dafoe also stars. Tamahori (Die Another Day) begins shooting the film in July around Los Angeles, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., directing from a script by Simon Kinberg.


[03.04.2004] CS! meldet...
Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Revolution Studios' sequel XXX: State of the Union, which Lee Tamahori begins filming this summer. Dafoe will play George Deckert, a five-star general and secretary of defense.
In the XXX sequel, Ice Cube stars as Darius Stone, a new XXX agent embroiled in thwarting a political power struggle in the nation's capital. Samuel L. Jackson returns as National Security Agency agent Augustus Gibbons.
Tamahori ("Die Another Day") begins production on the film in July, around Los Angeles, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., directing from a script by Simon Kinberg. The movie is scheduled for release on May 13, 2005.


[01.04.2004] FilmJerk weiss mehr über "xXx 2"...
Columbia Pictures’ "XXX2: State of the Union" will begin shooting in mid-July, with locations set to include Los Angeles, Baltimore and the nation’s capital. The sequel to 2002’s "XXX," this installment will do without the original’s pairing of star Vin Diesel and director Rob Cohen.
Along with confirmed leads Ice Cube and Samuel L. Jackson, the sequel has signed Michael Roof to return to the sequel, reprising his role as National Security Agency techie Toby Lee Shavers.
Director Lee Tamahori (2002’s "Die Another Day") is currently working to refine the current draft of the script, originally written by Rich Wilkes. According to one source, "While the first film had Vin Diesel’s Xander Cage facing thugs from around the world, the sequel will find.a new XXX program agent, Darius Stone, embroiled in thwarting...a Washington power struggle." [...]


[14.01.2004] CS! sprach mit Ice Cube über "xXx 2"...
"We're still working on the script, but we're going to tailor make it for me," says Cube. "We don't want to copy what Vin did or try to do a movie that's the same thing but rejuvenated. Vin's character came from an X-Games Extreme Sports type of world. I think my character has to come from a totally different world. I'll be a new XXX agent brought in to work for the government. We're going to think of a new story, and we have Lee Tamahori working on the script. The first thing I said to him was that I do not want to make a big blockbuster movie. I want to make a movie that is good and we'll leave that blockbuster talk to everybody else."

[03.10.2003] CS! meldet...
Ice Cube will replace Vin Diesel in the Revolution sequel to its action franchise XXX, to be directed by Lee Tamahori (Die Another Day).
Originally envisioned as a franchise to star Diesel, Cube will step in to play a new character who is recruited by the National Security Agency to become a XXX agent. The XXX name refers to a three-strikes rule the NSA employs to give criminals the option of joining the crime-fighting force or going to prison.
Tamahori will direct the new adventure, which will be largely set in Washington D.C. and emphasize thriller elements over the first's extreme sports action. He will helm from a script by Simon Kinberg (Mr. and Mrs. Smith). Revolution plans to begin shooting next summer for a 2005 release.
Vin Diesel next stars in The Chronicles of Riddick, Universal's followup to Pitch Black, and did not want to film two sequels back-to-back.
Diesel will instead star in Hannibal for Revolution. Written by Gladiator screenwriter David Franzoni, the film follows the exploits of the 3rd century B.C. Carthaginian general who rode an elephant across the Alps to attack Rome.


[22.09.2003] FilmJerk.com meldet...
[...] as Revolution Studios moves forward on the sequel to 2002's "XXX," it will do so without the director of the first installment, Rob Cohen. Cohen will instead be directing "Stealth," a project he has been eyeing for some time and which will begin principal photography January 2004 in Australia.
Cohen reportedly had right of first refusal for "XXX2" and this means the directorial reins are likely go to Lee Tamahori, who has been in discussions to direct in the case that Cohen, as expected, ankled the Vin Diesel project. [...]


[07.08.2003] About.com sprach mit Neil Moritz über "XXX2"...
[...] Speaking of sequels, Moritz is prepping XXX2, which will start filming next summer. Rumors had Vin Diesel facing off against pirates, but that idea has been nixed. "No, it’s not pirates. I can tell you that it takes place in the United States." The switch has nothing to do with Pirates of the Caribbean stealing the pirate movie thunder. "We just ultimately decided that this fit the characters better, or actually was something a little different than what you’d expect."
Where XXX had exotic foreign locales, Moritz promised an equal spectacle for the U.S. based sequel. "It’s not necessarily that it has to be exotic. It just has to be really cinematic. There’s plenty in the United States that we can have."
Moritz can’t say who the villain will be, or who will direct the film as Rob Cohen has committed to shooting another film while XXX2 is going on. He could say though that there will be a new interest. Asia Argento is not returning. "Each one of these movies, you gotta start with a new girl." An interesting perspective considering XXX was billed as an anti-James Bond.


[29.03.2003] Anderson Jones von E! Online sprach mit Rob Cohen über "XXX2"...

[15.03.2003] TV Guide sprach mit Vin Diesel...
[...] he's already signed on to reprise his role as Xander Cage in two XXX sequels. "There are two scripts being written simultaneously," Diesel says, adding that XXX2 "could come out in summer 2005."

[02.02.2003] MTV.com sprach mit Samuel L. Jackson, u.a. über "xXx 2"...
[...] Jackson will return as agent Augustus Gibbons in the "XXX" sequel currently in development. "I would like to think that they are going to flesh out the story of Mr. Gibbons in some way," he said. "So you'll find out why I had that scar on my face." [...]

[02.01.2003] CNN sprach mit Rob Cohen über das Sequel...
[...] I'm dedicated to the idea that there'll be no template for [agent] XXX. Xander's adventures will always be different. It will not be going to another foreign place and having another exotic villain.
You know the Bond template, which is basically, James Bond stops a man or woman who would like to dominate the world from succeeding in eight to 10 beautiful, exotic locations, and eight to 10 different beautiful, exotic bodies and bedrooms. It's a beautiful formula and it's worked magnificently for 40 years.
[But] I would like you to come to XXX squared, as I call it, [in which you'll] think you're going to see the NSA and another Xander-defeats-the-bad-guys-in-strange-locales, and in fact I have something very different in mind. And so the hope is this series will not have a rubber stamp quality. It will in fact, almost be a different genre of movie each time. [...]


[17.10.2002] Heute startet "xXx" in den deutschen Kinos... Derweil hat DH eine Meldung über das Sequel...
Yahoo Movies UK reports that Samuel L. Jackson may not be returning for the proposed Vin Diesel sequel despite comments to the contrary by Jackson himself. Director Rob Cohen indicates the character of Gibbons may not even appear in the sequel: "I'm not certain about that...I love Sam and I was very happy with what he did in the film but the roads divides at a certain point. You either go down one of two roads with a character. He either remains the handler and is always on the phone going 'Get out of there Xander' and all that stuff which is thankless for an actor or it becomes Lethal Weapon and suddenly it's a buddy movie and neither option at the moment seems as anarchistic as I'd like. What might be interesting is that there's another force that comes into the story. I really want the movies to stay fresh and not to go 'Oh, here's the familiar, comfortable element'... so we'll move on and hopefully it'll be a good surprise".

[15.10.2002] Bei Blickpunkt:Film gibt es ein Interview mit Rob Cohen... Und Yahoo! Movies sprach mit dem Regisseur über das "xXx"-Sequel...
[...] "I have two scripts in development right now, One takes place in South East Asia and involves the Malaka Straits pirates and other things that go on from there. The other takes place in Washington DC, where I think our most colourful character will go up against all the grey men in Washington. And I can see mountain-biking sequences on the Capitol dome, things like that where, in a domestic context opposed to an exotic context, Xander gets to shakeup, well, George Bush and all that he represents."
When asked which of the two storylines he'd rather be involved with, Diesel himself was in no doubt. "Give me the dome," he bellowed!


[09.10.2002] Latino Review sprach mit Samuel. L. Jackson über "xXx 2"...
"We're talking about it, yeah, and we-actually Rob and I had some conversations about what Gibbons back story is and why he is what he is, and hopefully that will show up in the next one. I purposely did not pick up a gun. I purposely didn't beat anybody up. I was just Gibbons, so he's this mystery guy, so may be we'll find out what happened to his face. We'll find out if he was a Bond type, and why he is where he is, and why he gets to do that stuff."

[05.10.2002] Bei Pro 7 gibt es ein Special (Story, Stars, e-Cards, Pics, etc.)...

[03.10.2002] Bei CS! gibt es Infos zur "xXx" Special Edition DVD (RC1), die am 31. Dezember 2002 in den USA veröffentlicht wird...

[27.08.2002] WGA zitiert Drehbuchautor Rich Wilkes...
"Now that Vin is a $20 million dollar player, and an executive producer on 'XXX2,' everybody is a lot more hands-on the sequel. I have my opinions about where I want the character to go, but before I do a thing everybody has to sign off on it," says Wilkes of the process.
Armed with an abiding fascination with Japanese culture -- particularly the samurai and Yakuza gang worlds -- Wilkes reveals he may next send Xander Cage to the land of the rising sun.
"But since it's a sequel, you're fucking with the studio's franchise," Wilkes notes cannily. "It's a little more involved the second time around."


[21.08.2002] FilmJerk meldet...
How hot is Sony to lock up another potential franchise? We all know by now that Vin Diesel has been offered twenty million for the sequel to his latest film. What you might not know is that Sony wants to keep Vin in the family, and has thrown the Bald One an additional offer:
Twenty two million and three percent of the gross for a third film.
Word out of Culver City says the contracts could be signed any moment now. [...]


[19.08.2002] JAM! Movies meldet...
Vin Diesel's espionage thriller "XXX" remained the No. 1 movie for a second straight weekend, taking in $23 million to push its 10-day total to $84.9 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. [...]

[10.08.2002] E! Online zitiert die Sequel-Pläne von Rob Cohen...
[...] "Well," he grins, "those are just some of the things that can be done. Nobody said anything about riding a 70-foot wave. There are all kinds of things you can do on water. I know where I want to begin the story and how I want it to develop and how I want Sam Jackson in the field with him, working in an action format, not just as a handler. I know the parameters--I just have to fill it in with story and more spectacular stunts and stuff."

[09.08.2002] Harry von AICN hat seine Kritik zu "xXx" veröffentlicht und hat einen Vorschlag für ein weiteres "Vin"-Vehikel... Auch Massawyrm hat für AICN seine Meinung kundgetan...
[...] So here’s the hard and fast rule for xXX. If you had fun with "Fast and the Furious" and the trailer to this got you all giddy and ready to have a good time, then the Wyrm is giving you a no suck guarantee. If not, well then xXx is not for you. [...]

[08.08.2002] Bei CS! gibt es ein weiteres Interview mit Asia Argento...
[...] To Argento, her strong female role in xXx is different from the standard kick-ass women's roles of late. "They've been offering me roles in movies, like kick-ass roles, and I don't know if I'm really right for it right now. This was a movie I believed in. She helps him, not that he needs it, but sometimes he does. I loved the people who were doing it. Rob [Cohen] was a great director and Vin is a very good actor and so it's different."
[...] But is she signed for a sequel? "Yeah. I'm signed and I hope I'm in it."


[07.08.2002] Bei CHUD gibt es ein Interview mit Asia Argento...

[06.08.2002] Bei Cinecon gibt es ein Interview mit Samuel L. Jackson... Bei AICN gibt es Infoschnipsel zum Sequel...
[...] As for the XXX sequel, is called XXX2 (with the "2" as "square") and Rob Cohen is planning to set it in Asia. XXX part 2 will happen is South America, possibly in Argentina because he is a great fan the country.
Oh! And he said Asia Argento won't be in XXX2. [...]


[05.08.2002] Bei CS! gibt es (zur Abwechslung) eine vernichtende Kritik (3/10) von Andy Weil...
[...] Director Rob Cohen throws in every spy cliché in the book and his directing shows no visual style whatsoever. The movie is overlong at 2 hours and drags during the few scenes where plot is present.
Audience will most likely gush over the film (just like Fast and the Furious), but at least "actor" Paul Walker (from Fast) isn't present to make the film a total embarrassment. Even without Walker, it's still close to being a big mess of a film. I recommend "xXx" to anyone who liked last year's equally stupid "Swordfish".


[02.08.2002] Bei CountingDown gibt es mehrere Filmausschnitte zum Download... Im Forum der Comic Con gibt es interessante Infos zu den Comics, die Dark Horse Anfang 2003 veröffentlichen will...
[...] The first quarter of 2003 will see the Dark Horse prequel and sequel to the upcoming xXx (Triple X) film starring Vin Diesel. Along with the "before" and "after" projects, the publisher has plans to publish other xXx projects, starring characters from the film. [...]

[01.08.2002] Bei CS! gibt es ein kurzes Interview mit Rob Cohen... Ausserdem gibt es bei CS! motortechnische Infos zum Sequel...
Variety reports that General Motors' Pontiac division has signed a deal with Revolution Studios to promote the spy thriller xXx and is negotiating to make its new redesigned GTO a co-star in the sequel.
A 1967 edition of the original supercharged muscle car receives considerable screen time in xXx as star Vin Diesel's primary mode of transportation. No deal with GM had been arranged when the film was written or produced.
After seeing trailers for the film, Pontiac execs quickly approached Revolution, with the help of entertainment media consultant Michael Kassan and agency Norm Marshall & Associates, to build a campaign around the pic as a way to make the new GTO appealing to younger buyers when it hits dealerships in late 2003 as a 2004 model. Pontiac sold the original GTOs from 1964-74.
The choice of the car was based around Diesel's character, an extreme sports star who is recruited to become a secret agent. It's also a favorite of Revolution partner and classic car buff Todd Garner.
Revolution isn't done looking at cars after this. The studio is auditioning wheels to appear as the talking Kit in its upcoming Knight Rider film.


[30.07.2002] Bei AICN gibt es weitere Kritiken...

[29.07.2002] Bei CineMovies.fr gibt es mehrere Szenen-Bilder... Bei AICN gibt es eine weitere positive Kritik... Und der Hollywood Reporter meldet...
[...] VFX facility Digital Domain used its own proprietary software to make it appear as if Vin Diesel did all his own stunts. The heads of stuntmen, wearing helmets and flame-retardant ski masks while jumping motorcycles over explosive razor wire fences, were replaced by an extremely detailed computer-generated model of Diesel's head and neck. An authentic-looking CG version of the actor's bald pate was possible because the team at DD worked out a new code -- based on computationally brain-racking subsurface scattering techniques (which controlled how light appeared to reflect off his skin) -- to give Diesel's head a realistic glow. DD ended up swapping Diesel's head in more than 40 scenes in which stuntmen parachute, snowboard, airboard and motorcycle through extremes.

[28.07.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine weitere Kritik...
[...] Just saw xXx and man, the movie is just fantastic, I expected much less but I ended up seeing the most "pure fun" movie of the year. I liked The Fast and the Furious, I always thought Vin Diesel was kinda ok, but after seeing this VIN Diesel is a revelation, the leading man of the 21st century, in xXx he has incredible charisma, virtually the entire movie TREMORS from his massive on screen presence and the fantastic stunts Rob Cohen has conceived, and to all of you who liked The Fast and the Furious, the former seems like a little teaser trailer to xXx. This movie maybe isn't the most "intellectually" engaging but it sure brings to mind a great Gladiator quote "Are you not entertained" and pure, action packed entertainment is what this movie is about and lots of it at that, more and better than in any recent flick I can remember. This movie puts to shame the latest Bond sequels and just shows how that franchise has lost the pulse of new generations, xXx is Dr.No of certainly a new "Bond Sized" franchise, its refreshing and engaging, it kicks you outta your seat and makes you wish you were Vin Diesel, I have no doubt this movie is gonna have a massive following. [...]

[16.07.2002] Bei CS! gibt es ein kurzes Interview mit Michael Singer...

[13.07.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine weitere Kritik...
[...] As stated - the movie itself does nothing to redefine the spy genre. It follows the James Bond formula so closely that it’s already been spoofed by Austin Powers (think spy with girl on beach while headquarters is phoning in future missions on the machine saying "I know you’re listening" as the spy turns the power off for some other type of action). What it does do though (and does extremely well - X-treme - no pun intended) is raise the bar on action to a degree you can’t even imagine. The sequences of Xander skydiving, motor biking, snowboarding and driving put Mr. Bond to shame. It’s everything you’ve always wanted to see Bond do, but probably wouldn’t believe he could if he did. When Vin does it you believe. [...]

[12.07.2002] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik...
[...] Though the movie didn’t have the opening title sequences, most of the sound effects were missing and a lot of the computer effects were partials, I have to say the movie kicks ass. [...]
The Vin makes you want to be a spy, because then you would be a badass snowboarding, skateboarding, skydiving, motorcycle jumping, ass kicking, getting all the girls mother. If you liked "Fast and the Furious" or just thought it was kind of cool to watch, then this is that movie cranked to 11. Go see it, and dig The Vin. [...]

[21.06.2002] "xXx - TripleX" Trailer #2 ist online !!!
Mit Dank an Henrik

[08.06.2002] Bei TNMC gibt es ein Script-Review...
[...] Not bad stuff, a little Bondesque, but it's not "Christmas only came once a year". The plot also has it's share of twists and turns, almost like a noir flick or other spy films. It's not like blind siding revelations or anything, but it adds a grey matter to the usual WHITE VS. BLACK. Overall, I think Wilkes has a smart script. Cliche at times, it's going to be entertaining none the less. It's not difficult to connect point A with point B, but the ride is what you're paying the fare for.

[27.02.2002] Coming Soon! weiss schon mehr über den "xXx"-Trailer, der am Freitag seine Internet-Premiere feiern soll...
The trailer starts off much like the Super Bowl spot did, with the shot of the Prague (where it is currently shooting) lighted building. The clip shows the back of Diesel's neck, which bears a "xXx" tattoo. The tattoo is animated into the logo, a cool effect. The voice-over says, "His name is Triple X..." We see quick shots of our hero in action, much more than what was featured in the Super Bowl clip. With the background music kicking-up, Diesel is shown racing a motorcycle, jumping from a bridge with the car, kicking major butt, gearing up his ride (with weapons of course), jumping out of a plane on a snowboard, and much more. We also get a good glimpse at the villian and his co-stars, Samuel L. Jackson, Asia Argento and Eve.

Vin Diesel, my least favorite new-movie-star, is in the lead, but it wasn’t written expressly for him. Rich Wilkes didn’t fashion the script after Vin’s annoying attributes, but he’s the guy that wrote JERKY BOYS and AIRHEADS. (Yikes.) [...]

[...] the movie will be filming through the middle of June, with Samuel L. Jackson scheduled to arrive early in February. At least one local paper has stated that a scene will involve a stuntman rappelling from the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, the Gothic cathedral on Old Town Square. And rumor has it that a Prague soundstage has been flooded for a scene or scenes involving a submarine.

[04.01.2002] CS! berichtet...
Rapper Eve will star alongside Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson and Asia Argento in Revolution Studios' spy thriller "xXx" for director Rob Cohen and producer Neal Moritz, says The Hollywood Reporter. Production began last month in Los Angeles and has moved to Prague with an eye for an August release.
Eve will play Diesel's friend and business partner in the story of a tough extreme-sports player (Diesel) co-opted by the government to infiltrate a crime ring.
Cohen said Eve also is likely to perform the title song for the film. The trade also mentions that famed East German rock group Rammstein and seminal English electronica act Orbital will be featured on camera in pivotal scenes.

[05.12.2001] CS! berichtet...
Digital Domain ("Titanic") has landed the role of lead f/x house on Revolution Studios' actioner "xXx," reports Variety. [...] Digital Domain is expected to generate well over 100 f/x shots for the $50 million pic, which will emphasize extreme sports such as snowboarding and skydiving in its action sequences, including one that has Diesel's character driving up the side of a building on a motorcycle.

[29.11.2001] Dark Horizons berichtet über die Dreharbeiten...
The Abourn Journal reports that the Vin Diesel project is shooting in Placer County right now - namely a high speed car chase ending with a red 1998 Corvette being driven off a bridge (which is actually the third highest bridge in all the US).

[28.11.2001] Pitch Black World hat eine Info von Vin Diesels Produktionsfirma One Race Pictures...
"We are shooting Triple xXx, we start shooting "The Chronicles of Riddick" PB2 in June I believe. As for Knockaround Guys, I don't know what the studio is going to do as you know Vin has a small part in that movie it's not his film. xXx comes out on July 26th or August 2nd. I think it's the 2nd. DIABLO comes out in the fall of 2002"

[16.11.2001] The Hollywood Reporter meldet, dass Asia Argento die weibliche Hauptrolle in "xXx" spielen wird... Ausserdem soll die bekannte deutsche Band Rammstein während einer Konzertszene zu sehen (und zu hören) sein...

[31.10.2001] Pitch Black World meldet...
The new Prague Studios opens its recently renovated soundstages Nov. 5, including the largest single soundstage in continental Europe. Tomas Krejci, CEO and general director of Prague Studios, tells Variety that the studio is in final negotiations to bring in "Triple X" by the "Fast and Furious" team of director Rob Cohen and star Vin Diesel. The film, produced by Revolution Studios for Sony, should go into pre-production at Prague Studios in November, in advance of its 10-week Prague shoot beginning Jan. 7.

Dieser soll wiederum einen russische Verbrecherorganisation infiltrieren. Der Film wird als eine extreme James Bond Version beschrieben, bei der mit dem Motorrad Gebäude hinauffahren wird."

[08.09.2001] Bei IGN FilmForce gibt es eine Drehbuch-Kritik...
[...] Still, reservations aside, this is a screenplay that really showcases Diesel's personality and abilities. Like the Riddick character in Pitch Black, X does something Bond never does - he changes. The character is not the same at the end of the film [...] Triple X may be the Dr. No for a new generation. For distributor Columbia Pictures, this may be that spy franchise they lost out on when they bailed out of Kevin McLory's Bond lawsuit against MGM.

[31.07.2001] Cinemaniacs berichtet, dass Vin Diesel nach dem Erfolg seines Films "The Fast and the Furious" satte 10 Millionen Dollar einstreichen kann...
