Ice Cube is in talks to reprise his role for Barbershop 3, after a decade-long hiatus.
MGM is interested in reviving the comedy franchise, and is said to be negotiating a deal with the rapper-actor to return, reported Deadline.
Queen Latifah and Cedric the Entertainer, who starred in the second film, could also be back for the third instalment.
The original 2002 film, directed by Tim Story and set in Chicago, starred Ice Cube and Anthony Anderson. The same cast featured in the 2004 sequel, Barbershop 2: Back In Business, with Kevin Rodney Sullivan in the director's chair. Both movies combined made around 140 million US dollars worldwide.
He is also producing the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, which will be directed by F Gary Gray and is set to start production in the summer.
