things fall apart

50 cent's new film "Things Fall Apart" has had it's trailer released giving people a taster of what is to come in the movie. The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, shed a lot of weight to star in the role of a big high-school football player who has contracted cancer.

He has stated that he normally weighs 214 pounds and is often photographed flaunting his muscles. Yet after nine weeks on a liquid diet last year, he went down to just 160 pounds. Jackson wrote, produced and financed the film himself. It has been directed by Mario Van Peebles and is expected to be released later this year.It is also loosely based on the life of his childhood best friend, the rapper-turned-actor goes from a dread-locked NFL hopeful to an emaciated cancer victim. Already pegged the "most critically acclaimed role of 50's career," the film also stars Ray Liotta.

So an exciting prospect to see he musician star in another film role and fans of his will surely be very eager to see the film.
