Sam does XXX again

11.05.2003

Even though star Vin Diesel and director Rob Cohen bailed on a XXX sequel, Revolution Studios has convinced Samuel L. Jackson to return as NSA agent Augustus Gibbons. Jackson will reprise his role as the agent responsible for the criminal-cum-secret-agent, this time working with Ice Cube, who's filling in for the departed Diesel. Instead of focusing on one hero, producers decided to change the character with every movie, hoping Jackson will be their continuity as the one responsible for training the new agent. Lee Tamahori (DIE ANOTHER DAY) will direct the film this summer for a summer 2005 release. Jackson had always said he wanted to return and make his character like "M" from the Bond series but his involvement was in doubt when Diesel and Cohen jumped ship. Jackson did promise we would find out the origin of his character's facial scarring in any potential sequel. The actor just finished filming on STAR WARS, EPISODE III and has TWISTED (formerly BLACKOUT) with Ashley Judd and voiceover work in THE INCREDIBLES on the way.
