Behind the likes of Power and 50 Central, G-Unit Film & Television was founded by 50 Cent and Interscope in 2003. New reports now suggest that the production company will now enter the big leagues of Hollywood with a fresh film deal across three Horror instalments.
First announced by The Hollywood Reporter, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has inked a deal with production company, Arts District Entertainment, while 3BlackDot will handle finances on the film. Eli Roth, one head of Arts District Entertainment is considered a horror film icon with titles including Cabin Fever, Hostel and Hemlock Grove on his resumé. This partnership will see films, “others were too afraid to make”.
“Both 50 and James (Frey) have never shied away from controversial, boundary-pushing material and have made massive global cultural impacts from their raw creative energy. We want to bring that same fun and danger to this new fantastic slate of elevated scary films. We want to make the movies others are too afraid to make” said Roth in a statement.
“Eli, James, Roger, Michael, and 3BlackDot will be great partners in G-Unit Film and Television’s takeover of the horror genre. I can’t wait to show the world what we’re building,” 50 Cent said in his own statement.
Not much else is known about the film or a timeline at this point, so stay tuned for further developments as they happen.
