50 Cent Forms Independent Film Production Company

At the Sundance Film Festival in Park City Utah this weekend, 50 Cent announced that he will be forming a new film production company with his manager Chris Lighty and producer Randall Emmett. Speaking to MTV News, 50 explained that the as yet unnamed venture will allow him to have more creative control over projects he takes on, in addition to developing his own films in-house. Emmett, a successful Hollywood producer is the name behind two of Fif’s previous film gigs, Home of the Brave and the upcoming Righteous Kill with Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. “I’ve had a chance to be a part of some great projects with him, and I’ve watched him work” the rapper explained. “He’s knowledgeable in that field, so I thought it would be smart for me to partner up with him to create my production company.” In Righteous Kill, 50 plays the owner of a Harlem nightclub that gets caught up in the hunt for a serial killer. Pacino and De Niro play cops on the killer’s trail. The G-Unit head also announced that he has worked on some material for the film’s soundtrack and a single called “Go Low” will be leaking soon.

    50 is tryin to spread his wings…but don’t get it twisted, there’s a difference between owning/starting a company and actually owning/running a truly successful business venture. Not tryin to hate, just tryin to be clear for the lil homies that look up to this new “hip hop” business model. Quantity is not always better than quality, and longevity is the main goal. Not a hot 5 years. People have to remember, 15 yrs from now, nobody’s gonna watch a movie because 50 produced it, it’s gonna have to actually be a good movie and stand up to the movies of people who are actually trained in this field. I wish him the best, I just had to post this because I felt like it needed to be said….just look at Jay-z as the def jam president! You mean to tell me that some one who actually has a business background, a mba, experience in the field, etc. wouldn’t have been better equipped for that job?
