Rob Cohen Abandons "XxX 3" for "Medieval"

Posted: June 10th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Rob Cohen Abandons "XxX 3" for "Medieval"Submit Comment
Director Rob Cohen has backed out of re-teaming with Vin Diesel on "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage" for Sony. Instead, he has signed a deal to helm "Medieval," an event-sized action film that Cohen calls "The Magnificent Seven" in the Middle Ages.

Cohen, who studied anthropology and European history at Harvard, said he was drawn by the opportunity to tap into the historical period and create a heightened reality with big action pieces. New Regency has kept the story a secret, but sources said the action brings together warriors from disparate cultures.

"It was a tough decision about 'XXX,'" Cohen said. "I talked to Vin over the weekend and said I hoped they would wait, but that if they find another director who's right for the sequel, I certainly wouldn't be angry. But I could not let something like this go."

Cohen said the aim is to get the picture into production by October.

Just get a fading action director who desperately needs good action performers...Renny Harlin would probably have a brain embolism to have Vin Diesel in his action set pieces. The John Cena's and other brain dead young performers he has to work with are ruining the excitement he's capable of. Look at all the crapfests he's made in the last ten years: What were the flaws? Actors and screenwriters... What were the saving graces? The action- and Harlin is responsible for that. Give him XXX3- at he can at least get a guilty pleasure out of that cast.

Vin Diesel should be saying HALLELUJAH! to himself. Gives him a chance to find a better director. Rob Cohen can't direct worth sh*t. Did you guys really like XXX and XXX2? Please.
