50 Cent Lands Role In New Joel Schumacher Film

After being replaced by Terry Crews in Sylvester Stallone’s forthcoming action flick, The Expendables, 50 Cent has signed on for another role on the big screen.

Variety reports that the G-Unit leader will star in Twelve, a new film by director Joel Schumacher (Batman and Robin). The movie, which is an adaptation of Nick McDonell’s novel of the same name, follows a rich, high school dropout turned drug dealer as he deals with the murder of his cousin, allegedly by the hands of his best friend.

Fif is set to share screen with Kiefer Sutherland (24), Ellen Barkin (She Hate Me), Rory Culkin (Igby Goes Down) and and Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl).

Scheduled to begin production on April 20 in the Big Apple, Twelve is expected to hit theaters in the winter of 2010. Ironically, 50 has another movie, 13, which is also slated for release that year. – Elan Mancini

    Of all films the article could’ve mentioned made by the director, they chose Batman&Robin… try Phone Booth, The Client, Tigerland and A Time To Kill, solid director, who knows, might get a decent performance out of Fiddy

  • El Tico Loco

    so 50 is making 12 with the star of 24 and the next project is 13.

  • dark vanilla

    drox, thats a bad idea, cuz most rappers can’t act. Only good rappers that acted well, were Ice Cube, Tupac, and Will Smith. If anyone can find me a rapper besides these 3 who can act, then fuck me. Oh yeah, Ludacris aint that bad of an actor cuz he did do a good job in Hustle and Flow and Crash.
