Dimension Films has agreed terms with rapper turned actor LL Cool J to star in Dolemite, a remake of the 1975 Blaxploitation cult classic featuring Rudy Ray Moore. The original Dolemite told the story of a pimp, recently released from prison who aimed to regain control of the nightclub he once owned (with the help of Kung Fu hookers of course).

LL Cool J is also starring in the remake of Rollerball, scheduled for release later this year.
