We’ve all heard the 50 Cent-cop rumors back in the day, but it looks like Fiddy is comfortable enough with his gangsta to play a member of the police force when he stars in the upcoming film, Freelancers.
Directed by Jessy Terrero (Soul Plane), Freelancers is the story of the son of a slain NYPD detective who joins the force and then goes rogue. Early reports say the film will begin shooting this March in Grand Rapids, Michigan. AllHipHop reports, “Freelancers will be the second movie in the rapper’s recent $200 million, 10-picture deal between his company Cheetah Vision Films, Grindstone Entertainment and Lionsgate.” This better not go Straight-to-DVD, Curtis.
