This is the best casting news we've heard all year!
We could barely contain our excitement last year when Vin Diesel announced he would return as extreme sports star turned super spy in xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage!
But in the next installment of the series, some badass women are set to join Cage's squad!
According to reports, Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose are in talks to join the cast of the action film!

The Vampire Diaries star will play a witty, sardonic techie (because when you think computer geek, you think Nina Dobrev, obvi), and the Orange is the New Black newcomer will play a sexy sniper!
As for Diesel's love interest, Bollywood star Deepika Paduko will be making her Hollywood debut as a huntress who is also Cage's former lover! Steamy!
Samuel L. Jackson will also be returning as the head of the National Security Agency. The film will be shooting in Toronto and the Philippines, as production is set to start later this month!
It looks like this movie will have a ton of femme fatale characters — which one are YOU most looking forward to seeing on the big screen?
