50 Cent to Star in New Bruce Willis Flick

50 Cent may be hard at work on his upcoming Black Magic LP, but most of his recent creative output will end up on the big screen rather than record store. 50, real name Curtis Jackson, now has plans to star with Bruce Willis and Josh Duhamel in an indie drama entitled Fire With Fire.

Produced by 50′s Cheetah Vision along with Emmett/Furla, Voltage Pictures plans to sell the movie at the Cannes Film Festival next week and is expected to officially start production on June 27, 2011, according to Variety.

The story focuses on a fireman in the witness protection program who, threatened by a man he plans to testify against, has to dramatically bend the rules of engagement to save the love of his life. The film is part of a 10-picture, $200 million deal with Lionsgate handling the U.S. releases.

Jackson’s other films under the deal and in progress include Setup, which stars 50, Willis and Ryan Phillippe, as well as the police drama Freelancers.

Fire With Fire will be directed by David Barrett from a script written by Tom O’Connor. —Carter Maness
