‘State’ slates Speedman

'Underworld' thesp will join Jackson, Dafoe in sequel

Scott Speedman is in final negotiations to join the cast of Revolution Studio’s actioner “XXX: State of the Union,” which Lee Tamahori begins lensing this summer.

Speedman will play National Security Agency agent and adrenaline junkie Kyle Steele, who works alongside the XXX program’s newest recruit (Ice Cube) to thwart a political power struggle in the nation’s capital.

First pic’s Samuel L. Jackson returns for the second installment. Willem Dafoe also stars.

Revolution partner Todd Garner is overseeing the project at the studio with exec Derek Dauchy.

Tamahori (“Die Another Day”) begins lensing the film in July around Los Angeles, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., directing from a script by Simon Kinberg.

Neal H. Moritz, who produced the first “XXX,” also returns.

Pic is expected to bow May 13, 2005.

Speedman, best known for his recurring role on the WB drama “Felicity,” most recently starred in Screen Gems’ horror hit “Underworld” opposite Kate Beckinsale.

Screen Gems and Lakeshore are prepping a follow-up in which Speedman may also star.

He can also be seen in indie thriller “The 24th Day,” which screened recently at the Tribeca Film Festival.
