Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is set to star in and produce “Things Fall Apart” for Cheetah Vision Films says Variety.
The story follows a football running back in his final year of college who suffers a personal tragedy that makes him question his own mortality.
Jackson is expected to shed 65 pounds for the role with a five week shoot kicking off in May in Michigan. Jackson and Brian Miller co-wrote the script while Randall Emmett will also produce.
Mario Van Peebles will direct and co-stars in the film along with Lynn Whitfield, comedian Mike P and Steve Eastin.
