50 Cent continues to spice up that acting resume of his. The music mogul just signed on for yet another film, Summit’s latest action-thriller, “The Tomb.” After working together on Lionsgate’s “Fire With Fire,” Fif will reunite with Vincent D’Onofrio and Vinnie Jones in this Mikael Hafstrom directed action-thriller. The film also stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Oscar nominee Amy Ryan as its female lead.
The film is focused around Stallone who plays an expert on structural security. The plot thickens as Stallone is framed and put in a high-security prison of his own design. The storyline then unfolds as he must put his skills to the test to find out who put him there.
The 70 million dollar flick is being co-financed by both Summit and Emmett/Furla Films, which also produced “Fire With Fire.” However, this is not 50’s first time working with Emmett/Furla films, as he was also cast in the company’s “Setup” with Bruce Willis, “Freelancers” with Robert De Niro and “The Frozen Ground” with Nicolas Cage.
Last month 50 Cent announced that his fifth studio album will be released this summer. “My album is coming out july 2. I got some heat trust me I’m ready,” Fif tweeted. The announcement comes after the New York MC called out Interscope Records for a lack of support surrounding the release of the LP.
