Movie hardman Samuel L Jackson has inked a deal to reprise his role in the sequel to Vin Diesel thriller XXX.

The PULP FICTION star - who played secret agent AUGUSTUS GIBBONS in the 2002 blockbuster - will start work on the movie next year, with Die Another Day director Lee Tamahori taking over the project from filmmaker Rob Cohen.

Another change in the line-up is rapper Ice Cube, who is replacing Diesel as the lead character. THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS star will executive produce the project instead.
