Ice Cube stars in new xXx film
The follow-up to xXx was supposed to have featured Vin Diesel, star of The Chronicles of Riddick, and be directed by Rob Cohen of The Fast And The Furious, but both pulled out.
This left the door open for Ice Cube, who plays the role of new agent Darius Stone, and director Lee Tamahori, famous for Die Another Day and Along Came A Spider.
The cast is bolstered by the presence of Willem Dafoe, who excelled as the Green Goblin in Spider-Man 2 and also appeared in The Aviator, Samuel L. Jackson, soon to figure in the final Star Wars movie, and rapper Xzibit.
The film will be released in cinemas in the UK from April 29th.
