According to an article on Inquirer Entertainment, the “Fast and Furious” actor said “the next ‘xXx’ movie will begin with his title character staying in the Philippines.”

Diesel made the revelation after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association event held at the Beverly Hilton hotel in California.

The actor came to Manila last summer for the Asian release of the sixth installment of “Fast & Furious 6,” which he described as “probably the biggest premiere I have ever seen in my life.”

He said back then that when he goes back to Los Angeles, he would tell Universal about his desire to do a movie here.

In the recent interview, Diesel said he had a conversation with film producer Joe Roth on the possibility of taking scenes for his action-packed film in a “tropical setting like the Philippines.”

Perfect choice Vin.
