Donnie Yen is NOT the XXX 3 Villain?

XXX 3 is currently shooting in Toronto with one of the best action casts in years that includes Vin Diesel, Donnie Yen, Tony Jaa, Samuel L. Jackson and many more.

When Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa were announced as cast members I think we automatically assumed they would be bad guys.

This apparently is not the case however, as Donnie said on his Facebook page yesterday “That was some summary of my career life ! Not all accurate( I’m not a BJJ expert nor the villain in the new Triple X part 3 movie.”

 

 

That seems a little odd since the synopsis says “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.”

Xiang is played by Donnie Yen according to IMDB but it may end up that we think he is going to be the bad guy but ends up having ulterior motives and is merely a rival. Either way I am really looking forward to this movie which hits theatres in January 2017.

I remember quite enjoying the first Maze Runner but I never got around to watching The Scorch Trials; this latest entry in the series actually looks like it might be pretty decent so I may have to give them both a watch before ...

International Trailer for The Commuter

This is actually a better trailer than the first one… right up until the crappy CG finale which looks like the climax of the film too. So now we don’t need to bother watching it when it comes out. Plot: In the midst...
