Vin Diesel's next project is ''XXX''!

Get your mind out of the gutter: That's its title, not its rating

For a moment there, it seemed Vin Diesel might be seeing even more action than usual with his latest project, titled ”XXX.” But producer Neil Moritz assures us that our minds aren’t in the gutter – we’re just showing our age. ”I don’t think kids today know what XXX is,” he says. ”Nothing is rated X anymore, it’s all NC-17.” (We’re sure that warms the MPAA’s heart.) The film, which Moritz describes as a PG-13-rated ”X-game version of James Bond,” began filming this week, and will reunite Diesel with his ”Fast and the Furious” director, Rob Cohen.

If all goes well, Moritz hopes ”XXX” will lead to a sequel (”XXXX”?), which means the producer could become his own worst competition, since he, Cohen, and Diesel are also talking about a ”Furious” reprise. (Diesel is already committed to film ”Pitch Black 2” this spring, and there are hopes that his upcoming action flick, New Line’s ”Diablo,” might spawn a franchise as well.) Says Moritz of the potential scheduling nightmare: ”We’ll deal with it.” Let’s just hope Diesel doesn’t run out of gas.
