50 Cent is set to star in a heist film that will be centered in the sports world.
Per Complex, the rapper signed on to star in and executive produce the new film, Free Agents, a movie which has been described as a “high concept sports action heist thriller.”
The outlet adds that the movie will follow a group of professional football players who come together to steal from the team’s ownership group.
The story will center around a journeyman player trying to get his last shot at the game. In the process, he’s lured into the scheme by some of his teammates. 50 Cent will play a veteran linebacker who is the group’s ring leader. He is responsible for pulling the younger, journeyman player into the heist.
The Lionsgate project will be directed by Deon Taylor, who created the story and also wrote the script alongside Joe Bockol. Taylor will be producing the film with Roxanne Avent Taylor through their Hidden Empire Film Group banner. Aaron Edmonds and Scott O’Brien will oversee the project for Lionsgate.
We can’t wait.
