The Fast and the Furious’ Vin Diesel is headed back to the fast lane. He’ll play rough-sports-loving man of mystery Xander Churchill — a grungier James Bond — in Sony’s Triple X. ”The extreme sports sound very exciting, and I already have the grunge thing down,” laughs the actor. ”I love the James Bond franchise, but if we can add a different spin to it in this new age, we should.” Furious director Rob Cohen will helm the flick, which he hopes to start shooting in January. ”Churchill employs X-game-type stunts, which serve as our action sequences,” explains Cohen, adding that his hero will take on five young Russian villains — very 007 — but that there’ll be no Bond Girls. ”They’ll be Xander Grunge Girls,” says Cohen, ”a lot different from those Euro-model types.” But how will Churchill take his martinis?
