50 Cent Signs On For New Flick, Talks Eminem Collabo

50 Cent isn’t an actor when it comes to his rhymes. He’s just portraying the harsh realities of life, is how he often describes his writing process.

But the G-Unit boss is certainly a thespian when it comes to his budding movie career.

The rapper has signed on to join the cast of “13,” a remake of a French film. Fif will star alongside Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham.

The plot centers around a man who steals a package and then decides to follow its included instructions. The contents of the package reveal an ugly underworld where men gamble with other men’s lives. The young man is trailed by three hard-nosed cops throughout.

According to Variety, however, no roles have been selected for the cast as of yet.

If 50 were to play a cop, it would add to a number of diverse roles he’s taken. The rapper basically played himself in “Get Rich or Die Tryin’,” but he’s also played a military man in 2006′s “Home of the Brave” and a club owner/gangster in this year’s “Righteous Kill.”

A character that 50 hopes to include on his next album is Slim Shady.

Fif told MTV News Eminem’s guest turn on the G-Unit star’s Before I Self Destruct will be the return of Slim Shady.

The two recorded together twice when 50 traveled to Detroit to work with Eminem. There, Fif said Em encouraged him to film the movie that will now accompany Before I Self Destruct.

50 described his and Eminem’s record as the “Norman Bates Hotel,” i.e. crazy.

Before I Self Destruct is due December 9. A production date for “13″ has not been set as of press time.—Nino “Dubs” DeLuca

    50 Cent & Jason Statham in a film together. Oh this is something I have to see!

  • Mr. Fly as a Pelican

    I disagree. Every time Em steps on a 50 track he rips it. In turn, it make 50 get his bars up. Every track him and Em rap on it raises the caliber of 50′s verse.

    $100.50 bucks says 50 wont sell over 400k his first week. GRODT was a fucking banger, close to a classic.And the first G-Unit album, “show you how to stunt”? Classic song ! And every once in a while 50 shows flashes of his former self… But it over and its been over for some time now.

    • sthxdnn

    I agree with Mr Fly as a Pelican. I was actually somewhat impressed with 50′s verses in the songs Re Up and You Don’t Know. He may not be as lyrically talented as he thinks, but 50 has enough pride to avoid getting embarrassed when rapping along side one of the all time greats.

    50 can eat a dick the nigga be too overrattted, he should have quit after Curtis like he claimed he would, he aint even gon do more than 400k 1st week, and you niggas should swallow a sac of babby dicks if you think he gon do em C3 numbers. Em gon push big numbers(+6mill) guaranteed, the nigga aint gon do shit even with dre and em backing him

    “50 Cent isn’t an actor when it comes to his rhymes. He’s just portraying the harsh realities of life, is how he often describes his writing process.”

    Niggasaywhaaaaaaat? The fuck outta here with that bullshit! I got no love for 50, but i can at least respect the man for gettin his paper. That aside, i appreciate when an artist is genuine in what he/she does, especially when it comes to lyrical ability. this crap above is straight LIES, and a clear biased on the part of XXL. I still love yall, but damn, yall just lyin to yourselves and us. The ONLY time that quote might have been true is on GRODT, but ever since then, its been a straight Gangsta Act 2 for 50 and crew. Harsh realities of life my ass.

    On another note, dude tryin to break into movie business now i see. I can predict what kind of movies he will make if he sticks with it, but if they’re any good we will see, but if his music and video game endorsements are any indication of his directing ability, i aint payin for it, or gettin my hopes up for any Oscar material.

    dude fell the fuck off,and that new single? who is his audience? an eminem collabo? so let me get this straight; niggas on the street, in 2008 in a recession is waitin’ on an EMINEM ALBUM??? yeah times are hard, pop some pills and rape your mom right Em? Fuck that shit. Maybe when niggas just need some shit to listen to but not now.And I coulda swore him and Eminem did a few songs together, I mean they wasnt no brooklyn’s finest or verbal intercourse but they was both on the song tho so it aint nothin new. And Fiddy got his own dick so far in his own mouth, he can’t even spit a decent verse. “50 Cent isn’t an actor when it comes to his rhymes. He’s just portraying the harsh realities of hating, is how he often describes his writing process.”
