Third 'xXx' movie: Will Vin Diesel's head look exXxcellent in 3-D?

I’m optimistic, because, as the old phrase tells me, good things come in threes. (Unless I decide to live by rules of The Room, which dictate that three’s a crowd, Denny.)

The other big news here? Vin Diesel will be reprising his role as spy Xander Cage (Ice Cube took his place as the leading man in the second installment), and Rob Cohen is back on board as director. (The film has also shifted from Sony to Paramount.) Also on board: Samuel L. Jackson, who will again play Augustus Gibbons. And since this is 3-D, I’m kind of hoping Gibbons becomes a victim of a surprise shark attack. Anyone else feel the same way?
