Vin Diesel's Biggest Supporter Pulls Out Of xXx 3. Poor Xander.

Rob Cohen, director of Vin Diesel classics xXx and Fast And The Furious, is leaving the xXx threequel he's been championing for some time now. This is not a good sign for xXx 3 : The return of Xander Cage.

What do you do when the one person that went to bat for your career slowly backs out in favor of another project? Cohen, has basically left Diesel's latest picture to rot, in favor of another awful-sounding project called Medieval. Is the next xXx script so terrible that Cohen is willing to turn down truckloads of money, in favor of making a historical film that's been called the Magnificent 7 in the olden days?

Cohen said it was a tough decision. Who can replace him? Maybe Diesel can rope in McG. Honestly, he should just do it. It'll give him a chance to turn his special attention to a franchise that can only benefit from his touch. And Diesel needs a director who can give him some cool backdrops to emote against.
