Ice Cube Goes “XXX”

Ice Cube has signed on to replace Vin Diesel in the sequel to the 2002 action hit, “XXX.” According to Revolution Studios, each subsequent sequel will introduce a new character in the franchise of films. Vin Diesel starred as an extreme athlete who became a secret agent in the original flick, which was directed by Rob Cohen. Cohen will not direct the sequel and has been replaced by Lee Tamahori, who directed the James Bond thriller, “Die Another Day.” Cube has a multi-picture deal with Revolution, through his Cubevision production company. Cube will star in Revolution’s “Are We There Yet” and recently started casting for “Wille,” the story of a high school janitor who led a high school basketball team to a championship title. Cube is busy in front of the camera lense. In addition to finishing a video for an upcoming single off of Westside Connection’s album Terrorist Threat, Cube also wrapped filming on the sequel to “Barbershop” and will appear in the upcoming “Torque.” The sequel to “XXX” will start production in the summer and will hit theaters sometime in 2005.
