50 Cent, Kilmer Fire A “Gun”
Emmett/Furla Films, Cheetah Vision Films and Richard Jackson are teaming to produce and co-finance three to five pictures per year says Variety.
The deal kicks off with “The Gun,” a drama scripted by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson who will co-star with Val Kilmer.
50 Cent and Kilmer play friends whose loyalties are tested when they get caught up in the world of illegal gun dealing.
Jesse Terro is set to direct and filming begins next month in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Randall Emmett, George Furla, Curtis Jackson and Richard Jackson are producing.
The deal will be followed by “Jekyll and Hyde” for Warner Bros. Pictures which Forest Whitaker stars in and Abel Ferrara directs.
