xXx 3 : Rise of the Machine

xXx 3 : Rise of the Machine

Not that a “xXx” movie really cares for a plot – so long as an action choreographer and stuntman is on the payroll, the film’s set to go! – but surely Sony could’ve hired a writer/s a little more polished and proven than Michael Ferris and John Brancato to pen what’ll undoubtedly be Vin Diesel’s ‘other’ comeback movie?

This is the duo that wrote ”Catwoman” (aaargh) and ”Terminator 3 : Rise of the Machines” (Zzzzzz), two of the weakest popcorn flicks of the last five years. Granted, they’re also behind next Summers Terminator Salvation, but the good stuff you’re seeing from that isn’t necessarily due to the script (which is reportedly so-so) but McG’s direction (I know! I know! But stranger things have happened!) – Whose apparently working his butt off on this film.

Whatever the case, Ferris and Brancato are working on ”xXx 3 : The Return of Xander Cage”. I suppose if the film’s advertised as ‘From the director of The Mummy Tomb of the Dragon Emperor’ then nobody’ll be expecting much of a plot. Just as well. They’ll be unlikely to get much of one I’d think.

Speaking of, “Mummy” scribes Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have been drafted to pen the Warner Bros.’ adaptation of the anime classic, “Robotech”.

“Robotech”, THR reminds us, was a 1980s cartoon series from Harmony Gold USA and Tatsunoko Prods. It was re-edited and re-dialogued to combine three Japanese anime series to give the producers enough episodes to air as a daily syndicated series.

A sprawling sci-fi epic, “Robotech” takes place at a time when Earth has developed giant robots from the technology on an alien spacecraft that crashed on a South Pacific isle. Mankind is forced to use the technology to fend off an alien invasion, with the fate of the human race ending up in the hands of two young pilots.
