Rob Cohan Reveals xXx 3 Update and Interest in Directing Another Fast and Furious Film

While promoting his upcoming crime mystery thriller ‘Alex Cross,’ director Rob Cohen revealed updates on two successful film franchises he helped launched, ‘The Fast and the Furious’ and ‘xXx,’ We Got This Covered is reporting. The filmmaker revealed his interest in helming a future ‘Fast and the Furious’ sequel and the rumored third installment in the ‘xXx’ series.

On Cohen’s IMDB page, it’s listed he will be returning to the ‘xXx’ series to helm the second sequel, the action adventure thriller ‘The Return of Xander Cage.’ He launched the series in 2002 with the original ‘xXx,’ starring his ‘Fast and the Furious’ star, Vin Diesel. Cohen said the second sequel is dormant right now, as he’s “waiting for Vin to get his head out of ‘Fast and Furious’ sequels.”

When asked on his thoughts on the ‘Fast and the Furious’ series, of which he directed the 2001 original, and whether he’d like to return to the franchise, Cohen said he’d be happy to make the next sequel. “No matter what way they twist it, I am still the guy who did the first one and made it what it was. I think that for a series to last ten or twelve years, you have to keep growing,” he said.

Cohen added that he doesn’t know if he would have “gone to the heist world” like in the last sequel, last year’s ‘Fast Five.’ “But the fact that it did $550 million is a compliment to what we started out to do,” he said.

The directed also said that he didn’t like he first couple ‘Fast and the Furious’ sequels. “What I hated about them was that it was just for money, the studio was just milking the cash cow. It’s a miracle they didn’t kill it. If you were to just watch ‘Tokyo Drift,’ you’d say I never want to see anything related to ‘Fast and Furious’ again,” he added.
