LL Cool J is in negotiations to star in the action-thriller feature "Mindhunters" for director Renny Harlin. Production is slated to begin in November in the Netherlands. The project will reunite the rapper-actor and the director, who worked together on the 1999 Warner Bros. feature "Deep Blue Sea."

The film's plot revolves around the FBI's psychological profiling division, whose members are referred to as mindhunters, and involves seven new recruits in training on a remote island to track serial killers. The trainees must put theory into practice when it emerges that a killer is among them. LL Cool J will play the lead role of Gabe, one of the seven recruits.

LL Cool J next stars in MGM's "Rollerball." He also is attached to star in Dimension Films' "Dolemite" and Miramax Films' "My Baby's Mama" opposite John Leguizamo, Lil' Kim, and Eddie Griffin from a script co-written by Griffin. The rapper most recently appeared onscreen in the film "Kingdom Come."
