Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, the enigmatic Hip Hop star, writer, entreprenuer, occasional actor, vitamin water spokesman and realisty TV star is ready to take on his most ambitious title to date, head of a film studio. More specifically, a film production company called Cheetah Vision which he has been spending this week promoting at the famous Sundance Film Festial.
While many may scoff at the idea of Fiddy being a real contender in the world of film production, the idea is not that far fetched in the spectrum of his previous accomplishments. Mr. Jackson pulled in an astonishing $150 million dollars in 2008 from his various business ventures. The bulk of that money came from his stake in Glaceau Vitamin Water and his film "Get Rich or Die Trying."
As of today, Cheetah Vision has purchased 8 scripts with one already being greenlit. The project is tentativly titled "The Dance" and will star 50 Cent alongside action star Nicolaus Cage. After that, 50 hopes to produce a film that he has been writing himself titled "Before I Self Destruct."
