Three months before Vin Diesel and his furious crew return to theaters in Fast 8, the veteran action star will bring back the other franchise that helped make him a household name. XXX: Return of Xander Cage will be the first XXX movie (well, this kind of XXX movie) since 2005, and features Diesel joined by a particularly wily Samuel J. Jackson.

“Kick some ass, and try to look dope while you’re doing it,” Jackson commands over footage of Diesel’s extreme athlete-turned-super-spy driving a motorcycle across the ocean. Diesel smiles and says, “I could definitely make that work."

XXX: Return of Xander Cage is due out Jan. 20, 2017, and was directed by D.J. Caruso (Disturbia). 2002’s XXX was one of Diesel’s breakout roles, but he did not appear in its 2005 sequel, XXX: State of the Union, starring Ice Cube.
