      The upcoming 50 Cent starring movie, “Get Live”, has finally found a director. Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Lozano, who directed the popular Mexican flick “Matando Cabos”, will direct “Get Live” with production starting later this year.

     According to Variety, the heist film is set in the underground world of clubs and illegal street racing. The script originally called for the story to be in New York, but Lozano, along with screenwriter Tony Dalton, are rewriting the script and adding Las Vegas and Philadelphia as locations, plus tweaking the characters a bit.

     "We wanted to give the characters more soul," Lozano told Daily Variety. "I didn’t want to make a film that just stayed an action film."

      The film is being produced by Stuber/Parent’s Mary Parent and Scott Stuber are with G-Unit Films’ Chris Lighty and are hoping for a 2008 release. 50 will also be starring in “Ski Mask Way”, a film based on the book which is based on his song, also shooting for a 2008 release. As previously announced, 50 will also be starring alongside Nicolas Cage for the prison boxing flick, “The Dance”.
