Robert De Niro Joins 50 Cent in FREELANCERS; Forest Whitaker in Talks

by     Posted 3 years, 148 days ago


If you thought 50 Cent couldn’t scoop up any more great actors in his cinematic wave of destruction, you were dead, dead wrong. We’ve seen the comical trailer for the trying-too-hard drama Things Fall Apart; the trailer for Setup showed the likes of Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe somehow drawn into its cast. NOLA reports that Curtis Jackson’s next movie, Freelancers, locked in Robert De Niro; Deadline adds that Forest Whitaker is in negotiations to join the cast. Jessy Terrero (who brought us the forgettable Soul Plane) will helm Freelancers, the story of the son of a murdered NYPD cop who joins the police academy, graduates, and gets recruited by a group of rogue cops led by his father’s old partner (De Niro). Freelancers is scheduled to shoot four weeks in New Orleans starting in April.

Sounds interesting? Well, let’s not count our chickens before the trailer hatches.

    Bobby!!! sometimes its OK to turn down a movie role.

    Why do these great actors keep doing these bad movies? 50 cent is an AWFUL actor, and not just because his teeth prevent him from talking normally.

  • Elitist Prick

    Studio logic: “Hey, 50 Cent has sold millions of records while being a terrible rapper, maybe he will sell millions of tickets whilst being a terrible actor!”

    That makes more sense than a lot of things. It’s not like he’s being cast based off of stellar box office numbers.

  • Ryan

    Robert De Niro is one of the greatest actors of all time.

    But lately he has done everything he can to prove people otherwise.

  • George

    100 million dollar can go to a person head. Anyways the only way this movie can be good:

    1.Some one else plays the lead
    2. One 50 cent a whole lot of acting classes

  • ChrisK

    Maybe it wouldn’t be that bad if Robert passed away before filming this. Tragedy as a means to avoid tragedy?
