50 Cent announced the launching of his film company Cheetah Vision at the Sundance Film Festival today (January 19).
According to The Associated Press, 50 revealed Monday that his film company has already purchased eight scripts and the first script it will be producing is The Dance which will star himself and Nicholas Cage.
"(The script) was previously passed around a little bit but both me and Nicolas Cage had an interest in the film so it will still happen," 50 said. "[Cage] plays the founder of a boxing program, and I play a fighter who goes to state prison".
"They are all different types of movies that I bought the rights to, and we're developing projects," the rapper added. "You will see different things from me in the future.
50 Cent will be making his directorial debut via his film Before I Self Destruct which will be a free DVD packaged with his forthcoming album of the same name.
50 revealed that Before I Self Destruct has been pushed back to a March release. The album had been slated for release next month.
50 Cent fans can expect to see the rapper grace the big screen this year. The G-Unit honcho will appear alongside Val Kilmer in the cop drama Streets of Blood. 50 is also attached to two other movies which are currently in production, 13 and Dead Man Running.
