50 Cent And Lionsgate Strike A 10 Film Deal
50 Cent has sated a busy man whether he is out promoting his Street King energy drink, his new mixtape, unreleased album or striking a new 10 movie deal with Lionsgate.
50 Cent’s Cheetah Vision film company announced a new 10-film deal with Grindstone/Lionsgate which will secure 50 a nice healthy income.
50 founded Cheetah Vision in 2009 with Randall Emmett.
The first time the deal was made, 50 landed a $200 million, 10-picture deal with Grindstone and Lionsgate.
Collaborations between Grindstone, Emmett/Furla and Cheetah Vision have produced a variety of successful feature films.
The original deal produced movies like “Setup” starring Bruce Willis, Ryan Phillippe and 50 Cent, “Freelancers,”starring Robert DeNiro and Forest Whitaker, “The Frozen Ground” starring Nicholas Cage and John Cusack and others.
“We have partnered with the Lionsgate family on films for more than 10 years, and we’re thrilled to see our partnership continue to grow with their success,” said Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and George Furla.
The next film under the partnership between Grindstone and Emmett/Furla is titled “Empire State” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Currently, Emmett/Furla and Cheetah Vision are working on a new action thriller titled “The Tombs” starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and 50 Cent.
That movie is said to be released next year.
Just goes to show how deep 50’s grind goes. It seems that he has his hands in anything that is making money in today’s hard economy.
