50 Cent Links With Meg Ryan for New Drama

How’s that for gangsta…50 Cent is set to share the silver screen with Romantic Comedy mainstay Meg Ryan. Variety reports that the G-Unit General has joined the cast of Lives of the Saints, a drama that tells the story of a group of troubled Los Angeles residents looking for redemption.

John Lithgow, Anthony Anderson and Esai Morales will all also star in the flick—by writer/director Chris Rossi—which will begin shooting on November 13 in L.A.

In related news, Fif’s Cheetah Vision production company recently inked a $200 million partnership deal with Hedge Fund Film Partners. The joint venture is expected to finance at least 10 films to be released by Grindstone Entertainment/Lionsgate.

Lives of the Saints will be hitting theaters via BCDF Pirtures, not Cheetah Vision. As of press time the movie does not have an estimated release date.  —Elan Mancini

    Keep sleeping on 50 if you want to. That dude is a true business man with cross-over appeal.
