Donnie Yen Replaces Jet Li in ‘XXX 3’

Even though XXX: The Return of Xander Cage just lost an action icon, it has scored quite a casting coup in the process. It appears that Jet Li has dropped out of the long-anticipated action thriller. But replacing him is the legendary Donnie Yen. The Hong Kong box office star is just coming off of Ip Man 3 starring opposite Mike Tyson. And will next be seen in the December blockbuster Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

It is believed that Jet Li was starring as the deadly alpha warrior Xiang, the role that Donnie Yen is now taking on. The supporting cast includes Deepika Padukone, Nina Dobrev, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa and UFC fighter Conor McGregor. D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four) is directing xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. The film is written by Chad St. John (London Has Fallen) with current revisions by F. Scott Frazier (Collide).

If that wasn't enough, the actor also shared another brief video featuring him working out alongside his co-star, international martial arts superstar Tony Jaa, who is seen sporting a blonde mohawk. Vin Diesel also shared a few new set photos over the past few days, and director D.J. Caruso has added a few more shots from the set as well. Hopefully either the actor or director will give us our first look at another martial arts legend, Jet Li, on the set in the near future.

The story centers on Vin Diesel's Xander Cage, who forms a new team filled with ""sexy badasses and comic relief players."
