XXX

Introduction
Rob Cohen, Neal H. Moritz and Vin Diesel -- respectively, the director, producer and star of the high octane summer 2001 smash hit The Fast and the Furious--now catapult the secret agent genre into the new millennium with the Revolution Studios action-adventure thriller XXX.

Vin Diesel blasted to stardom with his starring roles as Riddick in Pitch Black and then as street racing legend Dominic Toretto in The Fast and The Furious following earlier roles in Steven Spielberg's Saving Private Ryan, Boiler Room and as the voice of The Iron Giant in the critically acclaimed animated feature.

Starring with Vin Diesel in XXX is Samuel L. Jackson, one of America's most acclaimed motion picture performers, who has created a series of unforgettable characterizations in such films as Pulp Fiction, A Time To Kill, Unbreakable and the two most recent entries in George Lucas' Star Wars series.

Rob Cohen, one of film's most prolific and versatile directors, has also directed Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, Dragonheart, Daylight, The Skulls and HBO's The Rat Pack.

Neal H. Moritz has become one of Hollywood's most successful producers with such features as I Know What You Did Last Summer, Cruel Intentions and Blue Streak. XXX marks the fourth collaboration between Rob Cohen and Neal Moritz, following HBO's The Rat Pack, The Skulls and The Fast and the Furious.

In XXX, Vin Diesel and Samuel L. Jackson are joined by a cast of renowned international players. Asia Argento is a major star in Europe, having toplined films since childhood in her native Italy, as well as France, Great Britain and the U.S. Among her credits are Queen Margot, B. Monkey, New Rose Hotel, the French miniseries Les Miserables and several films directed by her father, cult filmmaker Dario Argento, including Trauma, The Stendhal Syndrome and The Phantom of the Opera.

New Zealand-born Marton Csokas was recently featured in Peter Jackson's hugely successful epic The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Jerry Bruckheimer's production of Down and Under and Alex Proyas' Garage Days, and immediately following his role in XXX, he was cast as one of the leads of Richard Donner's Timeline.

The supporting cast of XXX includes such talented performers as Michael Roof, who portrayed U.S. Ranger Maddox in Ridley Scott's highly successful Black Hawk Down, as well as Thomas Ian Griffith, Tom Everett, Danny Trejo and such European talents as Petr Jakl, Jan Filipensky, Werner Daehn, Richy Müller, Martin Hub and Radek Tomecka.

Also making appearances are some of today's most cutting-edge international musical talents, including hip-hop artist Eve, Britain's masters of electronica Orbital and Germany's metal favorite Rammstein, who recreate their fire-and-brimstone concert in a crumbling 150-year-old de-sanctified church converted into a bizarre nightclub owned by Anarchy 99. And participating in XXX are the biggest names in action sports today, including the legendary Tony Hawk, Mat Hoffman, Rick Thorne, Brian Deegan, Jason Ellis, Cary Hart and Colin McKay.
