13th May 2002: xXx Update:
The US release date for xXx has been put back. Don't worry its only been put back a week from August 2nd to August 9th. The reason is probably to stop it clashing with the release of the Mel Gibson supernatural thriller Signs.

The Hollywood Reporter claim that a sequel to the August release xXx has been greelit by Columbia Pictures. It's reported that the film's star Vin Diesel signed a £6.8 million ($10 million) sequel deal when he agreed to appear in the original. It has been pensiled in for a 2004 release date.

7th May 2002: xXx Updated:

Joblo were the first to score this pic of Asia Argento and Vin Diesel in Rob Cohen's xXx due to hit US theaters this August.

For all you UK fans of Diesel, I have recieved word that xXx will be released over here in October. More details when I get them.

News was posted on Dark Horizons today that a stuntman has been killed whilst filming a scene on the river Vltava in Prague. "A stuntman with a parachute was being dragged behind the motorboat, he didn't let go in time and smashed into Palackeho Bridge at full speed". Apparently the accident was witnessed by hundreds of onlookers, but the crew arn't allowed to comment at present. A pic is up of the scene over at iDNES before the tragic accident happened.


21/3/02
Czech website Filmweb have posted a host of stills from the Prague set of xXx. The pics feature a lot of the crew including director Rob Cohen and star Vin Diesel. The scene looks like its set down by the Vltava river that runs through the center of the city. I know exactly where they're shooting this as I walked down the same stretch of river back in January. This section is located a little down river from the Charles Bridge, where we reported on the 19th March that they were filming there also (see below). Ooh, take a look at that car......


19/3/02
A scooper has sent us in some information from the Prague set of Triple X (xXx).

"Have just returned from a week in Prague. One major, multi-camera scene was been shot on the famous Charles Bridge, involving an old American car which had been kitted out with a multitude of extra dials on the dash. I managed to take some photographs and then was moved on by security! Amazing to see!" (thanks to David).

Come on David let us see those pics! Send them to me here!



4/3/02
Apple have just posted the second trailer for Rob Cohen's high-octane action flick xXx. The trailer replaces the first one that we saw online a couple of weeks back, and in the new one includes a lot more footage from the film and a little look at some of the great stunts that we can expect to see when it hits theaters in August of this year.

13th Street have been looking at Rich Wilkes' screenplay for XXX and posted a review over at their site.

"Xander Cage (Diesel) is an extreme-sports athlete covered with tattoos and piercings, willing to do just about the most dangerous and twisted kind of stunt imaginable. The thing is, X (as he is called by close friends) isn't into selling out and making big bucks by branding his name on video games or gear; he pushes the edge just to prove he can pull off these crazy tricks.

Enter Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson), a representative of the National Security Agency, who needs a new kind of undercover spy to infiltrate a savvier generation of criminal organization. There's a bunch of European bohemian mercs that call themselves Anarchy 99 working out of Prague, and these guys can zero in and ID the old-style secret agent man like a bad smell". (full report here).

The film is scheduled for release in the US on August 2nd of this year. The filmmakers will have to move fast as they're still shooting in Prague and will go on for a few more weeks yet.

Two new bits of information for the Vin Diesel action vehicle XXX. First, check out the first image on the right here. Here is our first look at Sam Jackson in the movie. He stands alongside director Rob Cohen and Diesel himself. The second image over on the far right is of the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn, which stands in the famous Old Town Square
in Prague. Now Corona reports that there will be a set piece stunt performed outside of this Gothic cathedral. Their report originates from various Prague newspapers. They also report that one of the sound stages being used at the nearby Prague Studios has been water-logged for a scene or scenes involving a submarine.

XXX or Triple X, reunites Vin Diesel with his Fast & The Furious director, Rob Cohen and producer Neil Moritz.

This film also boasts the talents of one Samuel L. Jackson and Asia Argento along with rap star Eve. It's thought that Eve, the girl that brought us last year's hit Who's That Girl, will also contribute to the films soundtrack.
