Rap superstar 50 Cent has signed a new movie deal. “Variety” reports that Fifty’s Cheetah Vision Films has signed a deal with Action Jackson Films to produce and finance three to five major films per year. The first film under the new deal is a project titled “The Gun.” The film was written by 50 Cent, and will feature the rapper starring opposite Val Kilmer. “The Gun” — which begins shooting next month in Grand Rapids, Michigan — deals with friends who are involved in the underground world of drug dealing. “Fif” discussed the movie writing process telling “Variety,” quote, “When you write a song, you need to say it in three minutes or it is overkill, but I like creating stories and going in depth with characters.”
A release date for 50 Cent’s “The Gun” has yet to be announced. On Tuesday, 50’s fourth studio record, “Before I Self Destruct,” arrived in stores.
