Xxx2 Gets Green Light

Movie bosses have announced a sequel to hit VIN DIESEL movie XXX will be made - even though they're struggling to find a director for the film.

ROB COHEN, who directed the original, has right of first refusal, but the movie-maker's plans to make COLUMBIA PICTURES' STEALTH may prevent him from taking on the job.

Hollywood insiders believe the reins will likely go to LEE TAMAHORI, who is currently in discussions with studio chiefs to direct the sequel, now titled XXX2.

Should Tamahori come aboard the project, it would mark the New Zealander's third franchise after directing the most recent installment of the JAMES BOND series, DIE ANOTHER DAY, and ALONG CAME A SPIDER, based on the best-selling book series by JAMES PATTERSON.
