Rapper-turned-actor 50 Cent has landed a whopping $200 million in funding for his film company Cheetah Vision.

Rapper and producer Randall Emmett, who launched the venture with 50 Cent last year, negotiated the multi-million dollar sum for a 10-picture deal, backed by George Furla's Hedge Fund Film Partners. The cash injection will enable Cheetah Vision bosses to produce roughly five films a year, with a budget of about $20 million, reports Variety.

And the In Da Club hit-maker, real name Curtis Jackson, has already begun production on his first film as part of the deal - he's set to s...

50 Cent is to shock fans with a dramatic change to his muscular physique - the rapper is losing a staggering 65 pounds for his forthcoming movie "Things Fall Apart."

The hitmaker co-wrote the screenplay about a college football player suffering from cancer, and he has signed a deal to bring the project to the big screen through his Cheetah Vision Films.

And in order to accurately portray the role, the chiseled star is shrinking his bulging biceps and downsizing his diet.

Co-producer Randall Emmett tells Variety, "Fifty is in the process of losing 65 pounds for the role."


When Good Actors Do Bad Movies

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra
Entering theatres with a torrent of bad buzz, "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" has all the makings of a big-time flop - not necessarily a shock given the thin source material.

What is surprising, however, is the appearance of indie stalwart and critically acclaimed actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Cobra Commander. It's not the kind of fare he's normally associated with, but he isn't the first good actor to show up in a bad, bad film.

Why does this happen? There are myriad reasons, but these are the most popular:

Material temptation: It's not easy turning down a $20 million ...

Is 40 Dangerous Territory For Men In Hollywood?

George Clooney
There's a saying in Hollywood that goes, when a woman turns 40 her career is over, when a man turns 40 it's just beginning. Sex appeal seems to be the driving force in most stars careers and the perception of most men is that they get sexier with age. Thanks to plastic surgery and changing attitudes women have a fighting chance of keeping their share of the sexy spotlight. But what about the men of Hollywood?

In a not-so-popular film called "I'll Do Anything" Nick Nolte plays an out of work actor who's sleeping with a casting director and lands an audition for a show she's working on. ...

Why Are So Many Rappers Acting?

8/27/2008 11:46am EDT
This isn't to bash rappers, nor is it to say that these artists aren't allowed to pursue different paths in Hollywood. With so many prominent rappers acquiring roles in big movies though, it begs the question-why?

It's not as if rappers in movies are a new thing. In 1991, Mario Van Peebles cast Ice-T as a cop in "New Jack City," a film that is beloved by many. That same year, director John Singleton cast Ice Cube as a Los Angeles gangbanger in "Boyz N the Hood." These two movies helped open the floodgates for rappers to enter the world of acting.

Made In Connecticut: Filmmakers Turn East Coast State Into Moviemaking Mecca

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Is Connecticut the new Hollywood? Probably not, but it has become a hotspot for filmmaking. The quaint, colonial towns and Yale's impressive architecture led director Steven Spielberg to direct a portion of his highly anticipated "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" in New Haven. Director Sam Mendes admits that the state is a central character in his latest movie, "Revolutionary Road," starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Sure, the New England state is beautiful in the fall with its crimson leaves, pumpkin patches, and white picket fences. It features beautifu...
