50 Cent Promotes New Film Company & Upcoming Movie Roles At Sundance

Hip-Hop mogul 50 Cent was on hand at this week’s Sundance Film Festival to promote his latest business venture, the recently formed movie production company Cheetah Vision.

Reuters reports that the G-Unit honcho, who first hinted at his plans at last year’s festival, said he has already purchased eight movies. In one of the flicks, The Dance – about former champ turned prison boxing coach Billy “The Kid” Roth – Fif will act alongside Nicolas Cage.

“(The script) was previously passed around a little bit but both me and Nicolas Cage had an interest in the film so it will still happen,” he told Reuters. “He plays the founder of a boxing program, and I play a fighter who goes to state prison.”

The gangsta rapper isn’t only interested in developing sport dramas though. “They are all different types of movies that I bought the rights to, and we’re developing projects,” he said. “You will see different things from me in the future.”

Recently starring in the Robert DeNiro/Al Pacino crime drama Righteous Kill, 50 will be making his way back to the big screen with Sharon Stone and Val Kilmer in Streets of Blood and Golden Globe-award-winner Mickey Rourke in 13 later this year.- Elan Mancini

    Word is that he pushed the album back AGAIN. Not that i’m anticipating his album, but i’m glad that he realizes that neither is anyone else. I hope he does Nelly numbers in his first week.


    50 smart if he buy movies himself he has a better chance of being a star in them.

    Im starting to think that album is never going to drop. I thought he was just in some more (ahem) “beef” with ummm was it Wayne or Kanye?? I guess they said no. I know what will help Fiddy sell, why dont he give points off his album to T-Pain like (ahem) “Diddy” did? You gotta come up with better gimmicks man. Put a “dollar in every CD”: that equals up to two DVD’s, an actual album, a weed plate and blunt money!!!
