50 Cent to Play P.I.M.P in New Movie

50 Cent may have to dust off his Pimpin’ Curly outfit as it was recently announced that the G-Unit general  will be playing a 1980s-era pimp in a new thriller set to start filming next month with John Cusack, Nicholas Cage and Vanessa Hudgens.

According to the Anchorage Daily News, the movie, named The Frozen Ground, is based on the true-life story of Robert “Butcher Baker” Hansen, an Alaska pimp turned serial killer that took the lives of over 20 prostitutes throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Cusack will portray Hansen, while Cage will take on the role of an Alaska State Trooper that pursues him. Hudgens was casted as one of Hansen’s escaped victims.

The flick will be directed by newcomer Scott Walker and will be produced by Fif and Emmet/Furla films. According to imdb.com, the movie will be released in December 2012. —Elan Mancini

    that will be what causes the end of the world lol J/K I love John cusack’s movies and 50 cent is not that bad as an actor


    Damn,is this 2011 or 1974.
    Pretty sad to see that some Black dummies are up for playing the coon roles.
    What’s next,the remake of the movie Birth of a nation.

    If any of you have time,i advise you to go watch Spike Lee’s Bamboozled movie to see my point.

    Money doesn’t always brings happiness.
    Peace and blessing to all who comments today.

      Sad gto say it but “Bamboozled” might fly over the heads of many. Critical thinking skills don’t seem to be something that’s woth much these days.


        I agree
        But hopefully someone who’s curious about that movie might cope it and get something from it.
        Take care Jack Tripper and may your days be blessed.
