Soulja Boy Says 50 Cent is Helping to Make The Juice Movie Remake Happen

Last year, the Internet went nuts reading reports about Soulja Boy starring in the remake of the 1992 cult-classic film, Juice, and playing the role of “Bishop,” the same character the late and legendary Tupac Shakur portrayed in the original.

Over a year later, the 21-year-old MC says he’s taking his time to make sure that he not only gets the right script, but also the ideal scenario for filming and distribution. Well, he may be one step closer to finding the latter. Soulja recently revealed to that a certain rap mogul and very close friend of his is helping him make sure that the Juice remake happens—none other than 50 Cent.

“With the ‘Juice’ movie… 50 Cent, that’s my big bro,” Soulja told “He got a movie deal that gave him millions to come up with content. Me and him are going over the Juice movie now. That’s still coming.”

Fifty’s deal that Soulja Boy is referring to stems from 2010, when the G-Unit general’s Cheetah Vision film company landed $200 million in funding, although Soulja didn’t delve into ’Fif’s exact involvement with remaking Juice.

Although Soulja Boy was only two-years-old when Juice was released, the “Crank That” and “Turn My Swag On” rapper thoroughly understands its significance, especially Tupac’s masterful portrayal of the devious and twisted Bishop.

That’s why he says he understands that the remake has to be done right.

“I know that’s a big thing, I know,” he added. “You can’t just jump right into a movie like that and rush it. It’s a delicate thing, I know. But I got y’all.”

As previously reported, Soulja Boy acted in his first film, Officer Down, which also includes James Wood, David Boreanaz and Stephen Dorff, and is slated to be released this year.—Shaheem Reid (ShaheemReid)
