50 Cent's movie script gets green light
50 Cent is set to add another writing credit to his resume - he's signed a deal to bring his Things Fall Apart project to the big screen.
The rapper has embraced numerous acting roles over the last few years, making his cinematic debut in semi-autobiographical 2005 movie Get Rich or Die Tryin'. He also starred in 2008's Righteous Kill alongside Robert De Niro and Al Pacino.
He wrote the script for 2009 crime drama Before I Self Destruct, to tie in with his album of the same name - and now his next writing project has been given the go ahead, according to Variety.com.
The hip-hop star co-wrote Things Fall Apart and now he's set for a starring role in the picture, about a college football player.
The movie will begin shooting in Michigan in May (10) after the rapper completes his latest tour.
