Columbia Pictures is in negotiations with producer Joe Roth to develop a new version of xXx, and plans to bring back Vin Diesel and Rob Cohen. According to Variety, the pair have agreed to come back for the new project although no deal has been signed yet.

Vin Diesel as star and Rob Cohen as director worked together on the 2002 original but neither returned for the sequel, xXx: State Of The Union, which starred Ice Cube and was directed by Lee Tamahori.

“XXX” is a 2002 action movie that has been marketed as a modern James Bond style film. Starring Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson and Asia Argento, the flick has become a hit collecting as much as $142.1 million nationwide and $277.4 million worldwide. Following its success, a sequel is made for 2005 release. But, the reception was poor as it only managed to bring in $71 million worldwide.

The third incarnation has a title, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, but no script. No word on when production will begin.
