Ice Cube has had a busy week -- announcing a team-up yesterday with entertainment executive Jeff Kwatinetz for a 3-on-3 basketball league, BIG3 -- and it isn’t over yet.

Cube will also be reprising his role of Darius Stone when the xXx franchise returns Jan. 20 with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.

He’ll be hitting screens alongside Vin Diesel -- who plays Xander Cage -- who didn’t appear in the previous film, xXx: State of the Union, in 2005.

Warning: Mild spoilers ahead! Though the character of Cage was thought to be dead, he ends up being brought back via “Pandora’s Box” and sharing the screen with Stone (Cube). In the trailer, pandemonium erupts, including a lot of stunts, chases, brawls and explosions.
