Freelancers

Originally thought to be heading straight to DVD land, cop action drama titled Freelancers, was supposed to be getting a limited theatrical release scheduled for last Friday, August 10th. But I don't believe that happened; at least, BoxOfficeMojo.com doesn't list the film at all. Unless it was just one screening in LA, ahead of the films DVD, VOD release on August 21.

Curtis "50 Cent" JacksonRobert De Niro and Forest Whitaker star in Freelancers, in which Fiddy plays the son of a slain NYPD officer who, with his two best friends, joins the Police Academy. After graduating, he's taken under the wing of his father's former partner, Captain Joe Sarcone (De Niro), and he becomes part of Sarcone's rogue task force.

Official synopsis reads:

The son of a slain NYPD officer joins the force, where he falls in with his father's former partner and a team of rogue cops. His new boss, Sarcone, will see if he has what it takes to be rogue through many trials and tribulations of loyalty, trust and respect. When the truth about his father's death is revealed, revenge takes over him, and he won't stop until justice has been truly served.

The film, which is co-produced by Jackson under the 10-picture, $200 million agreement that Jackson and his Cheetah Vision production company have with George Furla's Hedge Fund Film Partners, was directed by Jessy Terrero (Soul Plane).

Despite criticism of the strength of his acting and films, Fiddy keeps attracting top-shelf talent, and also continues to get hired by others to appear in their films. Next up on the big screen we'll see him with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Tomb, which is out next year.

A new red-band clip from the film has surfaced; watch it below:

    The director of Soul Plane and 50 Cent teaming up on a film? Polish the Oscar and get the acceptance speeches ready.
