Aziz M. Osman proves that art does not have any time limit with the third sequel for his first sci-fi film, XX Ray, 20 years after its last sequel.

Believing that late is always better than never, the director made his announcement last year and has received amazing response from his fans, who have waited for this sequel ever since XX Ray II was screened in 1995.

The blockbuster director said that he took more than 20 years to come back with the third sequel of XX Ray because he did not want to produce a movie just because there was demand for it, but rather because he is passionate for it.

"I wanted to do this for my passion, not for the profit. The first XX Ray was made because I was passionate about the story, and so was the second one. But come the third, eventhough there was demand for it at that time, I thought that I would just be milking the franchise for more money instead of doing it for passion, and I do not want to do that. I want to be passionate about my films," said Aziz M. Osman.

Aziz said that he was inspired by a real incident that happened in Peninsular Malaysia back in 1996, which caused the whole nation to experience blackout. Produced by Ace Motion Pictures, the film is estimated to meet the audience in February 2017.

"I don't want this sequel to be too dependent on the original film. XX Ray III, eventhough it is a sequel of 1993's XX Ray, is a movie of its own. Audience do not need to watch the first and second movie to understand XX Ray III," he further said.

XX Ray III will be starring a mix of accomplished and new talents such as Izzue Islam, Puteri Aisya, Adam John, Afdlin Shauki, Amy Mastura, and Imuda, to name a few. Aziz M. Osman, as the former main actor of XX Ray, will also be making a cameo in the movie.
