Katy Perry to star in third xXx?

Vin Diesel has talked about Riddick 4 and the third xXx film

Vin Diesel has hinted he would like Katy Perry to appear in the third xXx film.

The US star gave an update on the third instalment of the action series on Facebook, where he revealed that the screenplay is almost completed.

"As you know, the new XXX script finally comes in next month... and just this morning people are suggesting Katy Perry as the new X girl," he wrote.

Katy replied on Twitter: "YES VIN DIESEL."

Vin starred as extreme sport junkie-turned-spy Xander Cage in the first film xXx, but decided not to star in the second film, State Of The Union. Ice Cube instead took on the role of new agent Darius Stone.

Vin Diesel also revealed that Riddick 4 could be in the works following the success of the third film on DVD. The third sci-fi outing, Riddick, came nine years after the sequel, The Chronicles Of Riddick.

"I'm excited, I'm happy and I'm shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me that Riddick is number one in the DVD charts," he said in the video.

"There's no way in the world Riddick would have been made without you guys. You remember how arduous it was for us to actually get the movie made and to do it on such a low budget. It's a win for all of us. Thank you so much. I'm excited."

The 46-year-old, who starred in and produced the films, added: "And of course, Universal's also saying they want to develop the next one."
