Since it was announced that Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson had launched his own film company 2 or 3 years ago, Cheetah Vision, I've been casually watching to see what kind of work this new venture would yield. Throw in the10-picture, $200 million agreement his company has with George Furla's Hedge Fund Film Partners, and, well, we had to start paying closer attention to the man and his films sooner or later.

I've been told by a few folks who saw Stick Fly while it was on Broadway, that she was the best thing about it, and she put on quite a show. Maybe that helps explain the fact that the only Tony nomination the play received was for Condola Rashad's performance - a Best Featured Actress nomimation.

"They'll spend a $120 million on a film or a whole bunch of money making a film and then a whole bunch of money promoting it a year before it actually comes out, and the money they get back in theaters is just the money they spent... And then it goes to dvd and everything is profit there. Some of the movies I've done recently, I was financing and I've already seen a 60 percent return on what I've [been] involved with. They don't understand, they're looking at it and going, 'Well, it went straight-to-dvd,' and they don't realize I'm gonna get another $800,000 off each one of these projects. You can sit there and say 'It went straight-to-dvd'... my ass... They'll try to figure a way to discredit whatever you do because I come from that. I have a lot, so I'm conditioned to the people who haven't been through that and can't get to the next level...
