Rapper 50 Cent has signed on to star in the new action film The Pursuit. The film's director, Jesse Terrero, has also been signed to a three-picture deal with 50's Cheetah Vision Films.
In the film, a U.S. Marshal is hunting both cop and a criminal who are forced to join forces to stop a bank robber. The film is due to begin filming in Louisiana in February.
The project is one of nine films that are slated to be produced by Cheetah Vision via a partnership with Emmett Furla.
