PARK CITY, Utah — The boxer, the rapper and their film production company. No, it’s not the plot of a movie being screened at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival . It was Floyd Mayweather Jr. and 50 Cent in Park City to promote the launch of Mayweather Productions.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and Mayweather, alongside actor Terrence Howard (who was at the festival to promote his latest film, “The Ledge”), sat down with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz to discuss their joint venture, and more specifically, partying it up at Sundance.
After talks of hitting the town, with or without wedding rings (to which 50 Cent joked, “I can’t condone this type of activity!”), the “craziest interview of Sundance” continued with talk of why they were really there. “We’re just celebrating the launch of Mayweather Films,” 50 explained.
Mayweather then grabbed the mic and said, “We’re going to do what we normally do: sit in a room and brainstorm and try to come up with new ideas … you know, outside the box. Be creative and just work together and try to be positive. That’s the main thing. It’s about working hard, being positive and working together.”
While Howard, who sat between 50 and Mayweather throughout the interview, had no immediate plans to work with Mayweather Films, he did express interest in seeing the boxing champ in his other line of work. “I just wanna see Mayweather in that ring again!” the Oscar-nominated actor exclaimed. “That’s what I wanna see again. That’s the project.”
