LL In Negotiations For New Film


Cool J is in

negotiations to star in the action-thriller feature

"Mindhunters" for director Renny Harlin. Production

is slated to begin in November in the Netherlands. The

project will reunite the rapper-actor and the director,

who worked together on the 1999 Warner Bros. feature

"Deep Blue Sea."

The film's

plot revolves around the FBI's psychological profiling

division, whose members are referred to as mindhunters,

and involves seven new recruits in training on a remote

island to track serial killers. The

trainees must put theory into practice when it emerges

that a killer is among them. LL Cool J will play the

lead role of Gabe, one of the seven recruits.

LL Cool

J next stars in MGM's "Rollerball." He also

is attached to star in Dimension Films' "Dolemite"

and Miramax Films' "My Baby's Mama" opposite

John Leguizamo, Lil' Kim, and Eddie Griffin from a script

co-written by

Griffin. The rapper most recently appeared onscreen

in the film "Kingdom Come."
