50 Cent Denies Fighting with Righteous Kill Co-Star, Speaks on Working With De Niro and Pacino

50 Cent has denied rumors that he got into a physical altercation with actor Frank John Hughes on the set of Righteous Kill, the film he’s currently working on with screen legends Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Earlier this month, a story circulated on the internet that claimed 50 punched Hughes in the face after the actor confronted him about not knowing his lines. When questioned about the alleged scuffle by MTV News, 50 scoffed at the notion, explaining that a confrontation such as that would only serve to hurt his bottom line. “You know how much that would cost?” he explained to MTV News. “It was actually a fight scene in the film—so expand it, get a little bit of controversy going so people [will be] be interested.” Curtis also opened up about working with two of the most respected actors in Hollywood, nothing that he feels he is holding his weight on set. “It was definitely cool just being around them, away from actually performing on camera,” he told MTV. “De Niro, I’ve been to his house, met his wife. We’ve been to the firing range a couple times together.” In the film, 50 plays a nightclub owner who becomes embroiled in two detectives’ (De Niro and Pacino) hunt for a serial killer. “I feel good about my performance,” he said. “I want everybody to go see it and be excited.” Righteous Killis scheduled for release in 2008.

    50 must be the snitch in the movie. He’s the club owner who knows all the gossip in the streets, and he stays cool with the 2 cops to keep himself outta trouble.

    Your name alone will not catapult movie sales, but maybe Panero’s will.

Now they tryna cover it up tryna act like it was to start up some contriversy. If that was the case they would have never tried to act like it didn’t happen duh.

  • jaidon

  • Chuuuuuuuuch

    I bet when 50 used to watch Scarface and The Goodfellas he neva thought he’d be workin’ side by side wit Pacino and De Niro. That is one hell of an accomplishment from where he came from. Can’t wait to see this flick big ups to 50, get that paper nigga!

    How if they been workin on this film since the begining of the year? and both denero and pachion said in a interview that they wouldent really like to work with rappers in their movies and so did samule L. Jaokson and 50 did movies with all of them so i give him respect for comming from south side queens to workin with leagends in the acting game and not just reallying on rap he been in the rap game since 03 its 07 and he make over 100 mill off vitemen water alone how many rappers make 100 mill through out their whole career? 1.Jay-Z 2.Diddy 3.50 cent so he is a bussiness man thats why he markets all of his ventures in a good way so 50 is a genius

    GGGG-UNIT
    all yall haters can kiss my and 50′s ass!!!!

  • nonsense

    the rap game rumors have nothing to do with this, or whether or not he can make money.. this is one of the few movies where deniro and pacino, the two who made gangster movies and cinema in general worth watching, are together. Now they go and make a joke out of the whole thing by putting 50 cent in the movie.. this is a crime against humanity, no two ways about it..

  • calimovement

    Damn…I swear some of you must be getting paid by 50 with all this fuckin devotion.

    50 had great mixtapes…but the music he putting out now is just garbage. Point blank….thats it. There aint one track on the Massacare or curtis worth putting on replay.

    ok…if fifty got in a fight with this dude he would be messed up for real, fifty is huge, and he used to be a boxer…and it dont even matter that he lost the sales battle with kanye, dude made 400 mil on glacier water so he still has more money than any rapper except for prolly Jay-z
