Movie Picture Columbia Pictures is in negotiations with producer Joe Roth to develop a new version of xXx, and plans to bring back Vin Diesel as star and Rob Cohen as director.

According to Variety, the pair teamed on the 2002 original, which starred Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports enthusiast who gets drafted by the government for a dangerous mission.

Roth controls the property because the original film was made by his Revolution Studios, which was also behind XXX: State of the Union, a sequel that starred Ice Cube and was directed by Lee Tamahori.

The third incarnation has a title, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, but no script.

Diesel has agreed to return and so has Cohen, but talent deals won't be worked out until the studio pact is made.

No word on when production will begin.

XXX: The Return of Xander Cage was released in 2016.
